Globe Wireless Acquires Zynetix

Tuesday, January 12, 2010

Globe Wireless has acquired Zynetix, a UK-based company specializing in GSM solutions.  Frank Coles President & CEO of Globe Wireless said, “Mariners will use personal GSM handsets without paying premiums for that convenience.  By seamlessly blending IP satellite systems such as FleetBroadband, OpenPort and VSAT with the Zynetix technology, Globe has created the perfect maritime GSM solution.  Customers can now address voice, data, and GSM usage with a single bundled solution that reduces costs for business and crew alike.”

Ian Taylor, CEO of Zynetix commented, “We are delighted to join Globe Wireless at this exciting time in the maritime communications market.  Specifically it enables greater focus and innovation in Zynetix’s two strategic business areas. This will accelerate the deployment of GSM on merchant ships, exclusively through Globe Wireless, making GSM a base-level expectation for on-board communications.  Zynetix will also continue to serve its extensive non-maritime GSM business, and is tasked with continuing to grow in the remote GSM solutions market.”
