OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 29, 2013) - C-COM Satellite Systems Inc., (TSX VENTURE:CMI) the leading global provider of mobile auto-deploying satellite antenna systems, announced today that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Vislink (LSE:VLK) a United Kingdom based secure communication technology provider.
Vislink will promote, market, sell and support the C-COM manufactured range of iNetVu(R) products, which would complement Vislink's existing product range and allow it to expand into new vertical markets including oil & gas; mining; police, fire, emergency and disaster management.
The iNetVu(R) mobile antennas will be integrated with Vislink's technology and sold by Vislink to their customers as turnkey systems. C-COM will also promote and sell Vislink's high end SNG and MSAT antenna products by making it available to all its resellers around the globe.
"C-COM's Ka-band iNetVu(R) Mobile antennas combined with Vislink's broadcast and security solutions should open up new vertical markets for both companies. Vislink's global presence combined with our worldwide reseller network will allow us to generate incremental revenues by delivering new applications to our mutual customer base," said Leslie Klein, President and CEO of C-COM Satellite Systems Inc.
C-COM and Vislink will co-operate on joint R&D projects to develop new products and to leverage on the support programs and incentives offered for research and development in Canada. "The combined resources and strengths of both companies should reduce overall costs for research and development and also reduce time to market," said Bilal Awada, CTO of C-COM Satellite Systems Inc.
John Hawkins, Executive Chairman of Vislink, says, "We have found C-COM very easy to do business with. The iNetVu(R) products are of excellent quality and really do enhance our own product ranges. Through this cooperation including future joint developments we see a great opportunity to grow together."
