Under the agreement, LightSquared will provide Wireless Matrix with satellite communications service through mid-February 2016, using LightSquared’s next-generation SkyTerra-1 satellite. SkyTerra-1 offers reliable, ubiquitous coverage throughout North America.
The agreement enables Wireless Matrix to provide service continuity for customers using satellite service as an integral part of their business. These include railroad operators that use satellite for mission-critical locomotive communications, energy companies that must connect with mobile workers for outage management and other unscheduled tasks, and energy companies requiring always-on monitoring of the status of fixed-site asset operations in remote locations.
“This service extension provides operational security for our existing satellite customers,” said Rick Myers, CEO and executive chairman of Wireless Matrix. “It also provides a foundation for development of next-generation satellite service offerings for the businesses we serve.”
