Boeing Delivers Advanced Satellite Communications Network to Mexico

Boeing has delivered one of the worlds most advanced satellite communications systems to Mexico, one that opens high-speed data and voice communications to the entire country including some previously unserved areas.

After successfully completing its final tests, the Mexsat system has been formally accepted by the Ministry of Communications and Transportation.

Mexsat provides 3G+ voice and data services to mobile terminals on land, air and sea, enhancing the countrys national security, civil and humanitarian programs.

The system is operated by Telecomunicaciones de Mexico (Telecomm) on behalf of the government.

Boeing, working closely with the Ministry, has developed a state-of the-art, turnkey satellite system providing critical communications services throughout the country, said Mark Spiwak, president, Boeing Satellite Systems International. With more than 30 years' experience building satellites for Mexico, Mexsat enhances an already strong relationship with an important customer.

Boeing designed, integrated and delivered the system, which includes two satellites, two network and satellite control stations, associated network operations procedures and prototype user terminals.

The final field tests were completed within 10 months following the launch of the Morelos-3 satellite. The tests involved exercising the 3G+ services such as voice calls, push-to-talk, internet video sessions, asset tracking, voice mail and text messaging over secure links to prototype terminals on ships, planes, vehicles, handheld devices and fixed sites.
