BlueTide Communications + KNS—Full Service Measures (SATCOM)

[SatNews] BlueTide Communications Corporation (BlueTide) announced it will be the KNS, Inc. (KNS) “master distributor” of full service installation and support to the North American market.

The BlueTide Network, powered by Hughes Network Systems, offers industrial-grade high speed Internet access, voice, private back hauls and video, coupled with cutting edge KNS VSAT and TVRO antennas, and will provide North American customers with access to full service, turnkey solutions for the offshore, commercial shipping, oil and gas and leisure maritime markets. With a complete inventory of KNS antennas and parts, BlueTide will be able to compress delivery times by avoiding shipping and customs’ delays related to overseas manufacturing and exporting.

Over the past few years, KNS has seen steady growth in the U.S. market and considers the Louisiana Gulf Coast to be the third largest region behind Europe and Asia. In support of market expansion, KNS has invested in significant training of BlueTide engineers and technicians, ensuring efficient and higher quality installations and service.
