Eagle Broadband, Inc (AMEX: EAG), a national provider of broadband, Internet protocol (IP) and communications technology and services, today announced the company has received a second order for its SatMAXÂ non-line-of-sight satellite communications technology from Norfolk Southern Corporation.
Norfolk Southern Corporation (NYSE: NSC) is one of the nation's premier transportation companies. Its Norfolk Southern Railway subsidiary operates approximately 21,200 route miles in 22 states, the District of Columbia and Ontario, Canada.
Norfolk Southern's initial deployment of SatMAX technology in 2005 was designed to enable personnel to use existing Iridium satellite phones to concurrently make fully wireless voice and data calls from inside certain offices. The additional order of SatMAX units will enable Norfolk Southern to expand its emergency communications capabilities.
