C-COM Satellite Systems Inc. (TSXV: CMI) has received orders for approximately US$1.28 million for the firm's iNetVu® antenna systems from various customers across Africa.
The systems have been purchased by several reseller partners and will be deployed by governments, militaries and commercial customers in the banking and broadcast sectors. C-COM expects to deliver these orders over the next few months.
Drew Klein, the Director of Business Development for C-COM, said that while the company has been active in Africa for a number of years, the mobile VSAT market has been slow to develop for economic reasons. These significant orders, from new and existing C-COM’s Africa-based integrators, are an indication that market conditions in the region may be improving and that highly reliable and cost-effective auto-acquire antennas such as C-COM’s family of iNetVu® products are of high value.
