C-COM Satellite Systems' iNetVu®...Stays The Coarse In China... From Past Earthquake To Recent Shaker (SATCOM)

[SatNews] This company recently responded to the emergency scene of an earthquake in China, and discovered that their antennas from a major earthquake over eight years ago are still top notch.

C-COM Satellite Systems Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CMI) has announced that a number of its iNetVu® antenna systems have been deployed to assist with communications to assist first responders and relief workers due to the recent earthquake in China.

Unisat, one of C-COM's largest resellers in China, and their customer, China Mobile, have deployed a number of iNetVu® mobile antennas in the earthquake affected region of Yunnan to re-establish cellular communications and provide emergency services.

"We have been working with C-COM and its iNetVu® mobile antennas for more than 8 years." said Mr. Jian Liu, President and CEO of Unisat. "Unisat was the first C-COM reseller in China and we have installed a large number of iNetVu mobile products. Many of the C-COM products we sell are deployed for emergency and disaster management."

Mr. Liu continued, "During the last big Chinese earthquake in 2008, Unisat has delivered a number of iNetVu® mobile antennas to provide emergency communications and TV uplink transmission from the earthquake zone. Our customers in China depend on the reliability of the iNetVu® products. All of the systems which were deployed during the 2008 earthquake are still working today without the need of any replacement parts. We expect to sell many more units to both existing and new customers in China."

"We are pleased to be able to work with Unisat and be able to provide them with technology that, with the simple press of a button, can restore cellular communications and deliver lifesaving services to a disaster zone." said Leslie Klein President and CEO of C-COM Satellite Systems Inc.
