OmniGlobe Receives CDN $200,000 Contribution from the National Research Council Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP)



    MONTREAL, Jan. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - OmniGlobe Networks, Inc., the global
telecommunications company specialized in delivering cellular, broadband
Internet and VoIP services, announced that it has received a CDN $200,000
contribution from the National Research Council Canada Industrial Research
Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP), its third contribution in two years. The latest
contribution will be used by the company to further develop its innovative
satellite-cellular based infrastructure for delivering cellular phone services
to remote regions of the globe. In addition to funding, NRC-IRAP will also
provide valuable advisory services in the development of this project.
    The rural areas present a challenging opportunity for mobile
communications services, and the demand for service has grown exponentially
over the past few years. In Canada alone, it is estimated that over eight per
cent of the population do not currently have access to cellular services. This
problem is particularly acute in remote regions, where conventional
telecommunications infrastructure is often non-existent. OmniGlobe's solution,
which consists in deploying cellular service using a satellite backhaul
infrastructure, provides instant, reliable and affordable communication
services to users.
    "Modern communication technologies are essential in remote communities.
With the previous support from NRC-IRAP, we were able to successfully develop
our network and bandwidth management solution that allowed us to deliver
cost-effective broadband Internet services in unserved areas," explained Dr.
Jason Neale, CEO of OmniGlobe Networks. "With this latest investment, we will
go one step further, and extend our portfolio of services to include
satellite-cellular communications."
