Globalsat Group is pleased to announce that its US affiliate has been authorized by the FCC to provide telecommunications services originating within the US
DAVIE, FLORIDA, USA, October 26, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Globalsat Group, the leading pan American consortium providing an array of satellite communications solutions across the western hemisphere, is pleased to announce that its US affiliate has been authorized by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to provide telecommunications services originating within the United States.
The group of companies has been fulfilling satellite voice and data solution needs to customers throughout the Americas since 1999 and the consortium's corporate office has been located in the US for several years, supervising the operation of other affiliates and managing logistics and relationships with satellite operators. With the awarding of the FCC license, the group's US affiliate can now market satellite communications solutions for sales within the US.
J. Alberto Palacios, Founder & CEO of the consortium, comments: “Globalsat Group was from the beginning conceived as a multinational organization. By its very nature, any business based on satellite service tends to be global or at least continental. However, it has been a significant operational advantage to have a local presence in the US, a territory where we can easily work together with our global business partners who also have offices here. And being here, it only makes sense to be able to sell here, and serve local partners with all the added value we have acquired working in other countries”.
The consortium is well known in the MSS (Mobile Satellite Service) community for its award-winning work in disaster prevention and mission-critical communication systems, as well as extensive M2M / IoT work and presence in other sectors including tourism and FSS (Fixed Satellite Service) for business and governments.
In 2016 Globalsat Group was named “Company to Watch” in the category of Emergency Response Mobility Satcom Innovation by the Mobile Satellite Users Association (MSUA), for its role in the tsunami detection and early warning system operated by the government of Chile.
The Globalsat Group affiliate registered with the FCC operates in the US as Globalsat Group LLC and is currently based in Davie, Florida.
When Hurricane Maria hit the Caribbean in 2017, the company was able to work with their local partner in Puerto Rico and contract private charter flights in order to transfer equipment and specialized personnel to the island, enabling early access to satellite-based communications for emergency responders and aid workers. Providing these services within the territory of Puerto Rico was possible thanks to the FCC license granted just a few months ago.
