As the need for reliable, high-speed communications in various industries increases, so has the demand for satellite communications – especially in European and Asian markets.

Ottawa-based C-COM Satellite Systems Inc. that it has received more than $400,000 worth of orders for its iNetVu portable satellite antenna systems from its resellers in China, Russia and the United Kingdom.

The news comes just a few weeks after C-COM announced the Ministry of Public Security of Vietnam deployed its iNetVu satellite for emergency communications – marking the first and largest government procurement of this kind to date.

With the new agreements in Europe and Asia, iNetVu antenna systems will be deployed in China, Russia and the U.K. for oil and gas exploration and emergency management. C-COM said it expects to ship all of these systems during the current fiscal quarter.

Dr. Leslie Klein, the company’s president and CEO, told TMCnet that the while China is an emerging satellite hotbed, U.K. and Russia are two of the early adopters of the iNetVu technology.

“In the Asia Pacific, the iNetVu satellite systems are being used for news gathering, petroleum, telecom and emergency services,” Klein said, adding that in the U.K., the applications range from education, healthcare, emergency services, Police, satellite news gathering and many more.

“These orders are testament to increasing world wide acceptance of the iNetVu Antenna systems for use in environments where instant communications coupled with extremely high reliability is absolutely essential,” Klein said.
