The first order related to the distributor agreement is worth approximately 5 million euros
Oulu, Finland, April 15th, 2021 – Bittium, a provider of mission critical solutions, and Mexican company Inmosat (Intercomunicaciones Moviles Satelitales, S.A. de C.V.), a certified provider of telecommunications solutions in the Mexican government market, have signed a distributor agreement covering the exclusive sale of Bittium's Mexsat satellite phones to the 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. Inmosat has an excellent support network in Mexico, which also covers the territories of individual states serving the authorities operating in them. The order related to the distributor agreement includes deliveries and maintenance services of Mexsat devices and the value of the order is approximately 5 million euros. Devices will be delivered throughout 2021.
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.
"Collaboration with Inmosat started after the Mexsat phones were launched and they have proven to be an excellent partner. 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," says Sammy Loitto, Senior Vice President, Sales, Bittium. "As a local company, Inmosat has 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."
"Devices developed by Bittium are targeted at Mexican government agencies and using the system will improve communication capabilities in Mexico, for example in disaster relief and emergency services," says Héctor González, CEO, Inmosat. "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."
