Global satellite (VSAT) and terrestrial communications services provider Emerging Markets Communications (EMC) announced today it has been awarded a contract from the Brazilian Navy (Marinha do Brasil) to provide VSAT satellite connectivity services for the entire Brazilian Navy Fleet. EMC will deliver services using its Global Ku-Band network, allowing seamless roaming across undefined routes in varying satellite beams. This unique satellite communications service incorporates EMC’s Satlink technology and enables high speed, secure Wi-fi, VoIP, video conferencing, and real time management, supported by EMC engineers and Global Operations Center, available 24 hours, 7 days per week.

“This development for Marinha do Brasil is a fantastic representation of EMC’s commitment to providing reliable, complete satellite communications solutions based around unique customer specifications in multiple verticals,” said Jesus Barber, Sr. VP of Mobility Services at EMC. “This solution ties together our expertise in the government sector and effectively demonstrates our emerging presence in the maritime space.”

EMC’s maritime solution for the Marinha do Brasil includes satellite capacity from its Ku-Band network and its proprietary industry-leading SatLink® 2900 Mobile modems. EMC’s Ku-Band network provides seamless coverage for global roaming across varying satellite beams, which allows for travel across undefined routes while maintaining connectivity at a rate of 99% SLA. In addition, EMC has provided a dedicated, private IP network for increased security across the network.
