FTMSC Becomes Vizada
France Telecom Mobile Satellite Communications (FTMSC) has renamed itself Vizada as it aims for sharpened performance in the mobile satellite services market. Apax Partners acquired the erstwhile FTMSC in October last year.
Vizada is targeting markets for its services to where there is limited terrestrial telecoms infrastructure. The company operates eight sales and representation offices worldwide, with a network of approximately 200 international distributors.
