Antenna Technology Communications Inc., a provider of commercial satellite communications systems, reportedly will offer its advanced products in nations across the Middle East, Latin America and Africa by the second quarter.

ATCi’s (News - Alert) broadband cellular service, which the company describes as a cost-effective service, enables cellular operators to extend their networks and reduce operational costs of serving remote and low Annual Rate Per User areas.
Company officials say that the ATCi cellular/mobile solution, which is nearly maintenance-free, can handle all voice and data backhaul traffic at a fraction of the cost of alternative solutions.
“To stay on top of the competition, cellular operators need to stay in tune with customer demand, and for that they need an innovative GSM backhaul system capable of transmitting high bandwidth traffic to a growing number of cellular sites with carrier-grade reliability at the most affordable price,” said Gary Hatch, chief executive officer at ATCi.
Hatch said that the ATCi backhaul system is emerging as the system of choice for service providers because it tackles all the critical requirements that cellular operators usually stress as critical issues – such as availability, revenue growth, quality, reliability, and most importantly an operator’s return on investment is accomplished in a matter of months.
Recently, ACTi announced the introduction of Altair, its pre-packaged broadcast systems.
According to the company officials, the Altair family of uplink satellite broadcasting systems were designed to meet the unique requirements of varying broadcast companies and applications such as but not limited to: religious institutions to broadcast the Gospel, universities for distance learning applications, new satellite channels that would like to transmit their channel to be picked up by cable companies and existing channels to broadcast specific program feeds.
