EchoStar Mobile’s satellite-based platform, designed and developed by Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HNS), leverages the ETSI GMR-1 3G air interface standard, enabling wireless mobile devices to communicate over the satellite.

The Portable Data Terminal (PDT), also developed by HNS, is designed for two-way communication, acting as an MSS hotspot that supports all advanced IP services providing 3G/4G-compatible voice and narrowband data services.

In addition to the mobile voice and data services that are the core of our initial offering, EchoStar Mobile continues work with partners and potential users to explore opportunities to develop applications and services that leverage the capabilities of the platform.
