Inmarsat has signed an agreement with Imtech Marine, appointing the full-service provider and systems integrator as a Value Added Reseller (VAR) for Global Xpress serving the worldwide maritime market. This follows on from a Memorandum of Understanding signed by the two companies in 2012.

Global Xpress will offer global superfast mobile broadband with download speeds of up to 50Mbps through a 60-100cm antenna. The Ka-band network will consistently deliver the fastest speeds through more compact terminals at a lower cost than existing VSAT services, making it accessible to many more vessels. It will offer global coverage with back-up from FleetBroadband.

The first of three Global Xpress satellites will be launched by the close of 2013 with the full constellation being completed by the end of 2014.
