Stratos Expands Asia Pacific Customer Support with New Hong Kong Service Center

--New center supports maritime and land-mobile markets throughout region--

Bethesda, Maryland (February 23, 2009) - Stratos Global Corporation, the leading global provider of advanced mobile and fixed-site remote communications solutions, today announced it has expanded its Asia-Pacific customer-support infrastructure with the opening of its new Hong Kong Customer Support Center. The center offers dedicated, local-language support to customers throughout the Asia-Pacific region.

Stratos' new Hong Kong Customer Support Center is staffed with trained professionals who speak both English and Chinese. They are intimately familiar with how maritime and land-mobile customers in the region are using Stratos mobile satellite systems, value-added services and software solutions such as AmosConnect.

Early last year, Stratos established its regional warehouse in Hong Kong. In the Asia-Pacific region, Stratos supports customers via its network of offices in Hong Kong, Singapore, Mumbai, Auckland and throughout Australia. Stratos' new JSAT MOBILE joint venture in Tokyo supports the Japanese market.

"Our new Hong Kong center offers optimal cultural understanding, enhanced service during Asia-Pacific business hours, and additional resources to enable our customers in the region to take full advantage of our wide range of value-added offerings," said Stratos President and CEO Jim Parm. "This is the latest example of our continued commitment to providing support to our global customer base. We believe we are well positioned to serve this vital region for many years to come."
