EMC Enhances Technology, Infrastructure for VSAT Mobility Services
[Via Satellite 02-03-2014] Emerging Markets Communications (EMC) has enhanced its technology and infrastructure to deliver VSAT mobility services, currently active on trains across Europe and Africa. Using EMC-owned SatLink VSAT technology, the services include enhanced mobility features for land, sea and aerospace deployments. The upgrade uses high-performance, low profile mobile satellite antennas and SatLink mobile VSATs to enable broadband connectivity and monitor GPS location for enhanced safety.
“We are excited to have such robust mobility services available, which have proven excellent on board these trains,” said Payam Herischi, EMC’s president of network systems and CCO. “Our technology not only enhances safety and improves monitoring and oversight, it also enables excellent, profitable services for passengers, including broadband Internet, voice services, and content distribution.”
With this new technology, passengers will be able to access broadband IP connectivity for public Internet access and VPNs, voice over IP (VoIP), as well as content distribution and digital signage.
