Bittium Selects Inmosat for Distribution of Satellite Phones in Mexico
Thursday, April 15, 2021 | Comments

Bittium and Mexican company Inmosat signed a distributor agreement covering the exclusive sale of Bittium's Mexsat satellite phones to Mexican authorities and national security entities.

In addition to the sale and delivery of the devices, Inmosat offers supplementary services, such as maintenance, customer support and customer services. The order related to the distributor agreement includes deliveries and maintenance services of Mexsat devices. The value of the order is approximately 5 million euros, and devices will be delivered throughout 2021.

“Collaboration with Inmosat started after the Mexsat phones were launched, and they have proven to be an excellent partner,” said Sammy Loitto, senior vice president, sales, Bittium. “This new distributor agreement enables us to offer our customers in Mexico a more comprehensive service than before. Inmosat has its own laboratory in Mexico, where devices can be repaired locally if necessary, without the need to be sent to Finland, and this significantly reduces the service time. As a local company, Inmosat has an excellent and extensive sales and support network that extends to all Mexican states. Bittium has been working for a long time to build a cooperation network in Mexico and we are really delighted about this new cooperation agreement with Inmosat.”

The Android-based Mexsat phones developed by Bittium for the Mexican state are designed to be used in the state-operated Mexican Satellite System. The development of the devices was completed in 2017, and since then several small batches have been delivered to government customers in Mexico. The devices are designed to operate on both terrestrial and satellite networks, and communication through both networks is secure, fast and easy.

“Devices developed by Bittium are targeted at Mexican government agencies and using the system will improve communications capabilities in Mexico, for example in disaster relief and emergency services,” said Inmosat CEO Héctor González. “We are very excited to announce the new alliance between Bittium and Inmosat. We are certain that with Bittium's high technological knowledge together with Inmosat's level of integration, support and innovation, we will provide multiple benefits to users of mobile satellite connectivity for public safety in Mexico.”
