"GIS brings years of experience in delivering specialised communications solutions to the energy and maritime industries, which are valuable in continuing to grow our customer base in these markets," said Jesus Barber, vice president of maritime, EMC.

"Our combined customers represent many global energy and maritime companies that have relied on us to connect their offshore operations with the rest of the world, when it matters the most."

EMC provides satellite connectivity and systems integration for a variety of offshore assets including platform rigs, drilling ships and offshore support vessels. Its acquisition of GIS expands its customer base to include companies such as Statoil, Transocean, Weatherford and Maersk.

The satcom provider says the deal will enable it to offer a combined portfolio of EMC and GIS products, including global coverage in C and Ku-band, network design, shipping, logistics, bandwidth commission, installation, and integration of communications systems.
