OTTAWA, October 30, 2018 – C-COM Satellite Systems Inc. (TSXV: CMI), the world’s leading provider of commercial grade auto-acquire mobile satellite antenna systems, announced today that it has received orders of US$1 Million for its iNetVu® antenna systems from various customers across Asia.
The systems have been purchased by reseller partners, in multiple countries, and will be deployed by commercial customers in the Telecom and Energy markets for cellular backhaul, disaster management and oil & gas exploration, respectively.
In spite of a recent slow down in sales to the region, C-COM remains a dominant player in the auto-acquire VSAT terminal market in Asia,” commented Drew Klein, Director of Business Development for C-COM. “These significant orders, from both new and existing resellers, are indicative that our highly reliable motorized antennas continue to be in great demand, and of significant value, to even the most demanding,” Klein continued.
C-COM expects to deliver these orders over the next few months.
The Company offers classic and next generation Driveaway, Flyaway, Fixed Motorized, and Backpack systems (iNetVu®) for any vertical market where communications are challenged due to disruption or deficiency.
