Mobile Satellite Ventures (MSV) has entered into a three-year strategic distribution deal with Sprint's Emergency Response Team (ERT) to offer continuous wireless connectivity for public safety agencies in situations where the public switched telephone network is congested or damaged, or phone coverage is nonexistent.
Sprint ERT will offer MSV satellite products and services as part of its rapid deployment solutions portfolio, and resell MSV equipment and services to public safety end-users throughout the US, including Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
Sprint ERT will also offer MSV services, including push-to-talk and two-way radio service over satellite, and telephony over MSV's MSAT generation satellites.
