Thrane & Thrane Now Offers Capsat Fleet33

Wednesday, August 27, 2003
Thrane & Thrane now offers the TT-3088A Capsat Fleet33, a product which the company dubs the smallest, lightest maritime Fleet terminal ever. The new terminal completes Thrane & Thrane's previous introductions of maritime high-speed terminals, the Capsat Fleet77 and the Capsat Fleet55. The Capsat Fleet33 comes with a very small and compact antenna, measuring just 35 cm in diameter, and a weight of only 4 kg. With the new terminal, packet data services and worldwide telephony becomes available for vessels, who otherwise never considered an Inmarsat terminal due to the terminal's size, weight, and cost. The new terminal provides users with an integrated 9.6 kbps fax and data service within the Inmarsat spot beam area. Also, it is prepared for the Mobile Packet Data Service (MPDS) planned for introduction in the beginning of 2004. MPDS allows users to remain always connected since charges are made only for the amount of data sent and received rather than the time spent online. MPDS is therefore an ideal solution for e-mail, web and intranet access. Thrane & Thrane's Marine Sales Manager, Kim Bille Gram said. "Imagine being a long way from your port of call, perhaps several days outside of cellular phone or VHF coverage, and still be able to go on the Internet to get up-to-date precise weather information, send and receive e-mails or simply make quality phone or fax calls. Capsat Fleet33 does all that and more in an unprecedented compact form."
