IPStar Launches Mobile Broadband Offering
Shin Satellite Public Co., operator of the IPStar satellite system, has partnered with RaySat Antenna System LLC, a provider of satellite antenna technology for two-way mobile applications, to offer a mobile broadband system for vehicles using IPStar’s Thaicom-4 satellite.
The iMove service uses a RaySat antenna on the vehicle to track Thaicom-4, providing passengers with mobile video, voice and data applications. The service targets the enterprise, government, military, broadcasting and emergency/disaster relief markets.
iMove has been tested in Thailand and will be jointly marketed by the companies. The service initially is available in Thailand, China, Vietnam, Australia and New Zealand and will be available throughout the rest of the Asia-Pacific region in 2007.
