Brazil-based satellite communications solutions provider, Arycom has received authorisation from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to provide telecommunications services to and from the US.
“We are proud and excited today as we mark a major milestone – the formal expansion of Arycom’s business into the US,” said Svante Hjorth, CEO of Arycom. “For 16 years we have been providing customised, end-to-end satellite communications solutions and we look forward to bringing our experience, superior customer support and heritage of success to the region.”
Arycom works with a range of international partners and designs customised solutions to meet the needs of users on land, at sea and in the air, while at the same time providing round-the-clock support. The company intends to initially focus on the business aviation market to meet the burgeoning demand for in-flight data connectivity, and will offer basic data connectivity and messaging to high-speed broadband internet, telephony, flight planning and flight safety and geotracking.
“The appetite and market demand for in-flight connectivity is growing strongly, both in commercial and business aviation,” Hjorth continued. “With our new US reach, we are able and eager to meet that demand and support customers across the whole of the Americas.”
