Boeing has completed the final tests on its MexSat satellite communications platform that works to provide voice and data services across Mexico and has delivered the system to the country’s communications and transportation ministry.
MexSat features 3G+ voice and data connectivity for land, air and sea mobile terminals in support of Mexico’s national security, civil and humanitarian programs, Boeing said Thursday.
Telecomunicaciones de Mexico operates the system on behalf of the Mexican government.
Boeing said the final tests checked the satellite system’s 3G+ services such as voice calls, push-to-talk, voice mail, text messaging, internet video and asset tracking.
The MexSat system consists of two satellites, two network and satellite control stations and prototype user terminals.
