Following the recent launch of services into Russia by OOO Iridium Communications ("Iridium Russia"), Beam is the first to support Iridium’s efforts in this new and emerging market by certifying its core range of Iridium docking, modem, tracking and antenna solutions.
"The combination of Beam products and the Iridium service offering now available in Russia provides a wide range of solutions for voice, data and tracking needs to be effectively serviced by the strategic partners appointed in Russia that will have access to Beam’s extensive product portfolio." said Michael Capocchi, Managing Director of Beam Communications.
"Russia has the same demands for communications as the rest of the world, only on a scale far greater than for any other individual country given the many remote areas and gaps in terrestrial coverage. Iridium provides the only satellite handset that works in every square mile of the territory of Russia – something that no other satellite company offers," said Dan Mercer, Iridium Vice President & General Manager, Europe, Middle East, Africa & Russia. "Beam’s proven portfolio of products, built on the global reach of the Iridium network, is uniquely positioned to address the country's communications challenges and meet strong customer demand throughout Russia."
Beam is a strategic Value Added Manufacturer of Iridium, specializing in voice, data and tracking terminals as well as satellite docking stations for the Iridium 9555 and Iridium Extreme handheld satellite devices.
