NY Transit Taps Satellite Services For Republican Convention
Eagle Broadband Inc. [EAG] today said its SatMAX non-line-of-site wireless repeater technology will be used in conjunction with Iridium mobile satellite communications services provided by World Communications Center by New York City Transit to provide communications services for its staff during the Republican National Convention this week in New York City. Financial terms of the deployment were not disclosed.
This announcement comes a week after Eagle announced the rebranding of its SatMAX product. Now, with a significant user on board, the use of its non-line-of-sight technology to enhance satellite communications by a significant public organization could give the technology some legs and could help get it deployed even further in the marketplace.
