IP Access International and Kymeta Sign Partnership Agreement to Deliver Next Generation Communication Solutions to Public Safety Agencies and First Responders

Critical mobile connectivity services delivered via the Kymeta™ u8 product family and a jointly developed broadband solution are now available to IP Access International’s large community of public safety customers

Redmond, WAMarch 23, 2022 – Kymeta (www.kymetacorp.com), the communications company  making mobile global, and IP Access International (www.ipinternational.net), a leading mobile and fixed  satellite solutions provider, announced today the signing of a partnership agreement to co-develop and  distribute optimized solutions using Kymeta terminals, broadband and LTE services to first responders  across North America.  

Today, IP Access operates the nation’s largest public safety satellite network, which includes over 1,000  agency customers encompassing 1,700 unique endpoints. This agreement to deliver optimized solutions  will combine Kymeta’s resilient and cost-effective electronically-steered flat panel technology with IP  Access’ experience building public safety networks for mobility and remote connectivity where it has not  previously existed. It will utilize coverage and bandwidth on a jointly developed, multi layered  broadband network optimized specifically for public safety customers. The Kymeta enabled solution  allows communication and interoperability among devices, further extending the reach of the IP Access  RedPHONE service even if there is an internet outage due to malware or denial-of-service attacks. 

“Kymeta is dedicated to bringing access to always-on, reliable, and mission-critical communications  while on the move to the public safety and first responder market,” said Bill Marks, EVP and Chief  Development Officer of Kymeta. “Our u8 products have been deployed around the world and provide a  real-world solution for the defense, government, public safety, and commercial industries by enabling  connectivity that is ubiquitous and more robust than ever before. We are pleased to partner with a well established leader like IP Access who has earned the continued trust and loyalty of first responders for  over two decades through the delivery of consistent, reliable products and services.”  

“IP Access looks forward to a strong partner relationship with Kymeta in our joint efforts to provide  resilient communications to response teams who protect and save lives,” said Bryan Hill, CEO of IP  Access International. “Our customers are indifferent to what network they are on so long as it is reliable.  Our goal at IP Access is to provide them with the connectivity they need on every possible network.  That means 4G, 5G, GEO, MEO and LEO. Customers have capital constraints, and it is our responsibility  to deliver solutions that are future proof and that is why we are partnering with Kymeta”. 

The Kymeta u8 product family for mobile broadband communications are low-maintenance and low profile for resilient communications-on-the-move (COTM) and communications-on-the-pause (COTP).  The u8 product family also offers a pathway to low Earth orbit (LEO) networks as they come online over  the next several years. The new partnership will allow IP Access to provide solutions that perform on  today’s satellites and are enabled to work on future LEO satellite networks. 

The partnership illustrates the commitment from both companies to enable critical mobile connectivity  solutions for public safety and for disaster response that are more robust than ever before. Kymeta and  IP Access have committed to a significant volume of equipment and satellite bandwidth to quickly fulfill  the needs of public safety and first responders and grow the product suite and coverage in support of  this important market.
