OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 6, 2014) - C-COM Satellite Systems Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CMI), a leading global provider of mobile auto-deploying satellite antenna systems, announced today that a number of its iNetVu® antenna systems have been deployed to assist with communications during the recent earthquake in China.

Unisat, one of C-COM's largest resellers in China, and their customer, China Mobile, have deployed a number of iNetVu® mobile antennas in the earthquake affected region of Yunnan to re-establish cellular communications and provide emergency services.

"We have been working with C-COM and its iNetVu® mobile antennas for more than 8 years." said Mr. Jian Liu, President and CEO of Unisat. "Unisat was the first C-COM reseller in China and we have installed a large number of iNetVu mobile products. Many of the C-COM products we sell are deployed for emergency and disaster management." Mr. Liu continued: "During the last big Chinese earthquake in 2008, Unisat has delivered a number of iNetVu® mobile antennas to provide emergency communications and TV uplink transmission from the earthquake zone. Our customers in China depend on the reliability of the iNetVu® products. All of the systems which were deployed during the 2008 earthquake are still working today without the need of any replacement parts. We expect to sell many more units to both existing and new customers in China."
