First Inmarsat Provider to Earn License to Sell Global Xpress in Brazil

MVS USA, Inc, a leading mobile satellite communications provider, today announced that the company is now offering Inmarsat’s Global Xpress (GX) to media organizations preparing to broadcast and cover the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil beginning August 5th.

MVS is the first distribution partner to be awarded a license to offer Inmarsat’s new Ka-band network in Brazil. The company is offering media organizations access to the newest, weather resistant, high bandwidth service for primary and redundant connectivity throughout the country, ensuring delivery of broadcast.

“Media organizations planning to broadcast or cover the Olympics in Rio in any way simply need a satellite solution as part of their communications portfolio,” said Deborah Deffaa, CEO of MVS USA. “With our experience and ability to offer GX services in Brazil, we will be providing media organizations with a highly reliable solution ensuring that the broadcast always continues at the highest quality no matter where they are in the country.”

MVS has been operating in Brazil for almost a decade, offering a range of L-band solutions for land, sea and air, covering elections, the Brazilian military and more. The company became a certified GX reseller in May 2015 adding higher bandwidth Ka-band services to its portfolio. With the addition of GX and the company’s long established footprint in the market, MVS is primed to source and sell voice and data satellite communications solutions to a wide range of industries, including media, oil and gas and maritime, both during and long after the Olympics have concluded.

“Brazil is an ideal market for satellite communications given its unique geographic landscape, potential for extreme weather and large swaths of the country where there is simply no terrestrial option,” Deffaa continued. “We have a long history and deep heritage operating in Brazil and we are excited to take this next step in bringing GX to the market.”
