OTTAWA, November 4, 2014 – C-COM Satellite Systems Inc., (TSXV: CMI; US – OTC: CYSNF) the leading global provider of mobile auto-deploying satellite antenna systems, announced today that it has achieved type approval for its iNetVu® Ka-98H antenna system from Avanti Communications. The iNetVu® Ka-98H mobile is the company’s second approved vehicle-mounted antenna that is able to operate on Avanti’s HYLAS 1 and HYLAS 2 Ka-band satellites. Avanti provides coverage across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
“We are pleased to see our 98cm Hughes based auto-deploying terminal added to the approval list by Avanti” said Bilal Awada, CTO of C-COM Satellite Systems Inc. “Our Resellers in Europe, MENA and Africa can now operate on an alternate Ka service offered by Avanti.”
Awada continued: “The current system comes with 2 axis motorization and will operate within the same Ka beam. A third axis motorization option is under development to allow users to roam to adjacent beams and will be available soon.”
The iNetVu® Ka-98H mobile antenna, along with its 7024 auto-acquire controller, enabled service of up to 2.5Mbps upload and 15Mbps download rates with a cost-effective 2W transceiver during the tests.
“The results of these tests and the corresponding Avanti approval demonstrate the high caliber of the C-COM mobile antenna designs,” said Leslie Klein, CEO of C-COM Satellite Systems Inc. “At the same time, it confirms our leading position in delivering one of the most advanced and highly reliable auto-pointing antenna systems available today.”
A number of iNetVu® Ka-98H mobile antenna systems have already been delivered to Avanti resellers. The product is now in full production and is available for immediate delivery.
