DALLAS, Feb. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- COMSovereign Holding Corp. (NASDAQ: COMS) ("COMSovereign" or "Company"), a U.S.-based developer of 4G LTE Advanced and 5G Communication Systems and Solutions, today announced that its Virtual NetCom (VNC) business unit has entered into a reseller agreement with Hughes Network Systems LLC ("Hughes"), a division of EchoStar Corporation (NASDAQ: SATS). The new agreement is for the integration and resale of VNC's man-portable RAID 4G/LTE (Rapid Access Independent Deployable) tactical and emergency communication solution into Hughes' SatCell Connect service.

COMSovereign Holding Corp. (PRNewsfoto/COMSovereign Holding Corp.)

VNC's RAID combines the key elements of an LTE broadband communications network into a secure, highly portable system using the latest technological advancements such as network function virtualization, cloud native services and orchestration. RAID powers the LTE network portion of the SatCell Connect service, which is a novel, rapidly-deployable wireless communication solution that is integrated seamlessly with Hughes' satellite backhaul.

SatCell Connect delivers the same features and functionally as commercial mobile wireless networks while uniquely being self-contained and portable for deployment to areas where existing communication networks have been damaged or are non-existent. As a self-contained and rapidly deployable communications system, SatCell Connect is ideal for emergency response events, temporary remote work environments, Military/Government operations and to provide cost-effective wireless access in unserved or underserved rural areas.

"We are pleased to announce our partnership with Hughes in support of their SatCell Connect service, which leverages the power of our RAID system to quickly provide vital 4G/LTE communications capabilities in nearly any location in a matter of minutes," said John Legters, President of Virtual NetCom. "Whether it is 4G/LTE today, or 5G later this year, products like RAID are helping us to deliver fully-featured wireless communications capabilities to users wherever it is needed without reliance on expensive and complicated network infrastructures."

Dr. Dustin McIntire, CTO of COMSovereign commented, "The ability to provide customers with secure wireless connectivity in a matter of minutes in response to emergencies or in locations where existing commercial services are unreliable or unavailable, demonstrates the power of VNC's RAID technology. When combined with Hughes' SatCell Connect satellite backhaul providing ubiquitous global connectivity, the power of 4G and 5G communications is available anywhere on the planet. Innovative wireless access products like RAID are just one example of how COMSovereign is working to help customers of all kinds benefit from the ability to quickly connect to the world."
