Inmarsat has signed an agreement with Telemar SpA, appointing the specialized managed satellite services provider as a Value Added Reseller (VAR) for Global Xpress, serving the Government market in Europe.

Andy Start, President, Inmarsat Global Government Services, said: “Telemar has been a significant partner for Inmarsat over many decades. With its broad and well-established international VSAT experience, Telemar is a natural GX partner for Inmarsat. We are very pleased to welcome Telemar as a GX VAR in the Global Government sector and we look forward to working very closely with them to grow a successful and long-term GX business.” Bruno Musella, CEO of Telemar, said: “The appointment as a GX VAR for the Government market represents a new and important milestone in our growth in satellite and mobile communications. Telemar was the first GX VAR appointed for the Maritime sector and this further important agreement strengthens the close strategic partnership between Telemar and Inmarsat across multiple market segments. Global Xpress, as a high-speed, high capacity and extremely reliable solution, is a perfect fit to meet the needs of our government customers with mission-critical communications. Telemar will add value to the Global Xpress ecosystem in Government, as well as in other Inmarsat business lines, through our distinctive commissioning, maintenance and integration of applications.”

Global Xpress is the world’s first globally available Ka-band mobile broadband satellite network, providing very high bandwidth services to end-users on land, at sea and in the air, delivered through a resilient, secure waveform that is optimised for mobility. Integrated seamlessly with Inmarsat’s current L-band network, Global Xpress will ensure reliable communications in support of mission critical operations in the most challenging environments.

Inmarsat-5 F1, the first Global Xpress satellite, which was launched in December 2013, and is on course to enter commercial service by mid-year 2014. The full constellation of three satellites is scheduled to achieve full global coverage by the end of the year.
