MSV Hires Hughes for Key Network Component (11/9)
Thursday, November 09, 2006 | Comments
Mobile Satellite Ventures (MSV) said Hughes will develop and supply MSV's satellite base transceiver subsystem (S-BTS) for $43 million. The S-BTS is the central element of the base station, which will facilitate communication between MSV's satellites and its terrestrial communications network. Hughes has committed to deliver the S-BTS in 2009, concurrent with the availability of MSV's next-generation satellite platform. It will be located in MSV's North American satellite gateways, and together with the spacecraft currently under construction by Boeing, will represent the key components of MSV's next-generation satellite network. The MSV satellite network component is planned to be fully integrated with MSV's terrestrial nationwide wireless network, enabling broadband services with a wide range of portable devices.
