Ligado, Cobham, ViaSat offer mobile satellite PTT platform

Tuesday 8 March 2016 | 10:25 CET | News
Ligado Networks introduced the Explorer MSAT-G3, a satellite push-to-talk (PTT) platform, in partnership with Cobham Satcom and ViaSat. The new Explorer MSAT-G3 platform is powered by Ligado Networks' SkyTerra 1 L-band satellite, which provides coverage throughout North America using a 22-meter reflector-based antenna. The communications services and data applications offered by Explorer MSAT-G3 will operate over ViaSat's low-latency, IP-based L-band Mobile Satellite Services network with PTT functionality enabled by Cobham's IP-based Explorer PTT user equipment and server infrastructure.
