Monday, October 29, 2007
In its effort to continue its expansive growth in the South American market, Iridium® Satellite announced a partnership with Tesacom®, one of the key South American channel partners of Iridium service provider, Stratos Global Corporation. Iridium is a fast-growing service provider in the mobile satellite services (MSS) sector and operates the largest commercial – and only global – satellite constellation in the world. Stratos, the leading global provider of advanced mobile and fixed-site remote communications solutions, is one of the key Iridium service partners operating around the world. Stratos is planning to offer a number of enhancements for Tesacom customers through the Stratos Advantage, which includes the Stratos Dashboard for Iridium, a convenient, online customer management tool for traffic monitoring, credit control and billing management. Tesacom is a South American, telecommunications company serving markets such as maritime, oil and gas, utilities, agriculture, emergency communications, mining, transportation, government and military markets of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay. Tesacom provides integrated communication solutions, including Iridium-based services, to South American markets. Tesacom offerings include satellite voice and data transmission; text messaging; localization and monitoring; mail and file transfer; network integration; software services; professional, consulting and field support services; as well as Spanish, Portuguese and English 24/7 customer and network support. Tesacom has now selected Iridium among other MSS operators to provide service to its customer base. This move is the result of an effort to supply a more reliable offering to customers as well as increase the scope of Tesacom’s portfolio to include Iridium voice, circuit-switched and short-burst packet data products and services. Iridium voice and circuit-switched data traffic originating in South America has grown by 25 percent over the previous year.
