Bentley Walker to Distribute EchoStar Mobile Satellite Service in Europe
Wednesday, December 14, 2016 | Comments

EchoStar Mobile selected Bentley Walker as the first Europeanwide distributor for its new satellite-based network that will provide reliable, IP-based mobile satellite services (MSS) for voice and data.

Bentley Walker will distribute equipment and provide service via the new EchoStar XXI satellite scheduled for launch later this month. The S-band satellite will provide coverage throughout Europe, including all 28 members of the European Union.

EchoStar subsidiary Hughes Network Systems designed and manufactured a portable data terminal (PDT) that will serve as an MSS hot spot supporting advanced IP services and providing 3G/4G-compatible voice and data services. One of the key features of the PDT, which will be able to provide connectivity across Europe, is its ability to offer separate and diverse connectivity in remote locations or where backup is needed, such as in an environment where terrestrial or cellular networks may have failed.

"We are very excited about this service," said Anthony Walker, CEO of Bentley Walker. "There is a demand by organizations that require a completely separate and diverse pan-European communications network infrastructure. EchoStar Mobile can provide connectivity for critical applications and in case of failure, core infrastructure communications for users who require quick and simple connectivity wherever they are."
