|Globecomm Introduces its FAST Terminal for Rapid Deployment of Enterprise-Class Communications Solutions|
HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Mar 15, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) --
Globecomm Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: GCOM), a leading global provider of communications solutions and services, today announced the introduction of FAST (Forward -Deployed Asset Support Terminal), which provides organizations quick-deploy communications solutions. FAST differentiates itself from other disaster-recovery solutions, in that the platform is enterprise-class, able to deliver tens of megabits of connectivity and technology options that can turn the platform into a multipurpose hub for local communications. With the FAST terminal comes a range of support, logistic, and service solutions including ready-to-deploy technical personnel to provide set-up and maintenance of the hub on short notice, coordination of shipping, travel and customers, and satellite bandwidth on demand with no reservation fee.
With each FAST unit, Globecomm can deploy its SatCell Instant Mobile Network, a patented satellite-based terminal providing GSM, CDMA or UMTS (WCDMA) mobile service. Using the FAST platform for backhaul, SatCell provides local and long-distance mobile service including voice, SMS, Internet data and advanced calling features. SatCell integrates smoothly with OSS and BSS from all major vendors. An optional telescoping mast antenna provides extended range. So if you are in the midst of a disaster and need immediate Enterprise-Class Communications Solutions or you simply require a complete communication solution in light speed time, FAST delivers.
Dwight Hunsicker, Vice President Government Business Development, said: "FAST brings customers the best of Globecomm. It leverages our technical expertise, proprietary solutions, global satellite and fiber network, and access to highly trained and experienced personnel available on short notice. Whether the disaster is tsunami, earthquake, hurricane or flood, each FAST unit can become the center of an expanding radius of communications to meet humanitarian, security and infrastructure needs."
