Shakespeare Electronic Products entered into a strategic agreement with Comprehensive Communications Systems Corp. to bring a series of new communications products to the U.S. marine marketplace.


Based in Palatine, Ill., CCSC has more than two decades' experience in high-speed wireless communications and cellular Internet technology. The company introduced a system for mobile Internet access to the North American recreational vehicle market two years ago. Teaming with Shakespeare, a Columbia, S.C.-based marine antenna manufacturer, CCSC says it will offer wireless and communications solutions for boaters in the near future.


"Our technologies have broad application, and we believe that Shakespeare's intimate knowledge of the marine industry will help us tailor products to precisely meet market needs," said Joyce Cutsforth, CCSC president, in a statement.


"Uniting CCSC's expertise with our high-quality antennas and extensive distribution network will place advanced levels of communication, data and Internet solutions within easy reach of boaters," said Don Henry, director of Shakespeare's marine products group, in a statement.
