Bently Walker to Provide Echostar’s MSS for Voice and Data
[Via Satellite 12-16-2016] EchoStar Mobile, a subsidiary of EchoStar Corporation, has selected Bentley Walker as the first European-wide distributor for its new satellite-based network that will provide IP-based Mobile Satellite Services (MSS) for voice and data. Bentley Walker will distribute equipment and provide service via the new EchoStar XXI satellite that is scheduled for launch later this month. The S-band satellite will provide coverage throughout Europe, including all 28 members of the European Union.
EchoStar subsidiary Hughes Network Systems designed and manufactured a Portable Data Terminal (PDT) that will serve as an MSS hotspot supporting advanced IP services and providing 3G/4G-compatible voice and data services.
