MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - July 09, 2014) - EMC Satcom Technologies, a division of Emerging Markets Communications (EMC), announced today that Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI) has selected the company to provide a satellite connectivity solution to increase the performance and reliability of its online banking and internal applications. The solution will support BRI's thousands of locations and automatic teller machines (ATMs) throughout Indonesia.
EMC's solution incorporates its proprietary SatLink® DVB - RCS2 VSAT technology used for high performance and reliable communication services.

"BRI's large-scale connectivity requirements align with the capabilities and strengths of our technology, enabling scalability, stability and efficiency within the network." "Financial institutions, with numerous remote locations and massive data processing, such as BRI, benefit from the design features of the SatLink® portfolio," said Herischi.
