MSV And Sprint Join To Offer Satcom Solutions To Public Safety End-Users
Mobile Satellite Ventures LP (MSV) has entered into a three-year strategic distribution deal with Sprint’s Emergency Response Team (ERT) to offer continuous wireless connectivity for public safety agencies in situations where the public switched telephone network (PSTN) is congested or damaged, or phone coverage is nonexistent, MSV announced Aug. 7.
Sprint ERT will offer MSV satellite products and services as part of its rapid deployment solutions portfolio, and resell MSV equipment and services to public safety end-users throughout the United States, including Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Sprint ERT will also offer MSV services including push-to-talk and two-way radio service over satellite, and telephony over MSV’s MSAT generation satellites. New and future communications services may be added throughout the agreement.
