DialToneServices has signed a three-year agreement with Mobile Satellite Ventures LP for the distribution of MSV satellite communications products and services.
DTS will distribute MSV voice and push-to-talk products and services to extend communications services to uncertificated telecommunications regions areas that are presently un-served or under-served by telephone companies, the company said. DTS provides fixed and mobile telecommunications services to residences, businesses and pubic safety organizations in rural and sparsely populated areas throughout Texas.
DTS President Bill Dorran said MSV services provide DTS customers a reliable telecommunications option via satellite in areas where wireline and wireless technologies do not work. Another benefit, he said, is the MSV push-to-talk capability, which is widely used by public safety officials.
“DTS serves a number of large ranches throughout Texas and the workers find the MSV push-to-talk, dispatch-style solution, exactly what they need to stay in touch. It also gives them a much needed safety tool in the event of an accident or injury,” Dorran said.
The MSAT-G2 satellite radio, which was introduced in early 2006, supports a range of point-to-point and point-to-multipoint communications platforms that include push-to-talk, push-to-track and voice services.
