FCC Grants Arycom License to Operate in the US
Arycom announced that the company has received the International 214 Authorization from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and is now authorized to provide telecommunications services to and from the United States.
Arycom has been providing satellite voice and broadband data solutions in South America from its Brazil headquarters since its founding in 2001. From its U.S. base of operations in Miami, the company has been selling satellite communications equipment, software and value added products to its customers around the world. With the awarding of the FCC license, Arycom can now immediately begin selling mobile and fixed satellite communications solutions in the U.S., and will do so from Miami and its newly opened office in Atlanta.
Arycom intends to initially focus on the business aviation market to meet the burgeoning demand for In-Flight Connectivity (IFC). Some of the services Arycom offers include basic data connectivity and messaging, high-speed broadband internet, telephony, flight planning and flight safety, and geotracking.
With its newly awarded license, Arycom can now serve the U.S. needs of its existing customers in South America while at the same time pursuing opportunities with new customers in the United States.
