TEMPE, Ariz., Feb. 11, 2013 - (PRNewswire): Niche Magazine Conference -- OffComm News, the quarterly magazine dedicated to remote communications exploration, is now available through NewspaperDirect's (ND) award-winning PressReader application and its companion website, PressDisplay.com.
Connecting operational critical missions, as well as the people working in super-remote locations, OffComm News is a magazine resource for buyers and suppliers of telecommunications destined for remote and harsh environments such as offshore oil and gas platforms, deserts, mines, and other connectivity-challenged regions. It reports with news and in-depth features on infrastructure, VSAT, satellite, hybrid networks, and more.
Through PressReader and PressDisplay.com, the publication can now be read by thousands of subscribers in remote locations that were formerly impossible or prohibitively expensive to reach with physical copies of the magazine.
"People continue to expect to find content on a multitude of devices, so adding OffComm News to NewspaperDirect's global digital distribution network makes good sense," said Georgina Elrington , editor for OffComm News. "This not only helps us to grow awareness and circulation, it brings critical and timely information to help people stay connected while operating in some of the remotest areas of the world."
