RESTON, Va. -- Mobile Satellite Ventures (MSV) today announced the selection of Colorado-based consulting services firm, Cadence LLC, to lead the design, architecture and development of MSV’s pioneering Integrated Services Delivery Framework (ISDF).

The ISDF is a “partner-ready platform” that will enable MSV to seamlessly and cost-effectively deliver innovative new content-driven applications and services across its next generation integrated 4G satellite-terrestrial network. The platform will solve the most critical issue facing the communications industry – reducing the time to market and costs associated with the delivery of converged services across an evolving communications value chain.

MSV is Redefining Wireless Communications™ through its development of a hybrid satellite-terrestrial communications network, based on MSV’s patented ancillary terrestrial component (ATC) technology. The company expects its next-generation network will provide seamless, transparent and ubiquitous wireless coverage of the United States and Canada to conventional handsets. MSV plans to launch two of the most powerful commercial satellites ever built that will enable this network to support communications in a variety of areas including public safety, homeland security, aviation, transportation and entertainment, by providing a platform for interoperable, user-friendly and feature-rich voice and high-speed data services.

The ISDF will enable MSV to rapidly provide transparent and interoperable wireless broadband services across its North American network through conventional handsets. The ISDF will also support MSV’s unique wholesale business model by supporting a new category of virtual mobile services resellers who will also rely on MSV for operational management and support. Third party providers of complementary content and services will be drawn to MSV’s network because of the ease with which new converged communications applications and associated business models can be created and deployed.

“MSV is implementing one of the most forward-thinking approaches to the classic OSS/BSS issues caused by today’s convergence of networks, technologies and industries,” said Drew Caplan, Chief Network Officer of MSV. “MSV believes that by taking a services-centric approach that encompasses both the network and IT domains, we can create competitive advantage in terms of supporting third party providers of services and speeding time to market.”
