First appointments for XpressLink global dealer network

Inmarsat, provider of global mobile satellite communications services, announce the first appointments for its global network of XpressLink dealers.  Twelve of the world's most-respected maritime communications specialists have been approved to sell XpressLink, providing access to shipping fleets worldwide through sales teams based in North America, Europe, Middle East and Asia.

XpressLink offers a fully-integrated Ku-band and L-band solution for a fixed monthly cost.  A complete solution managed by Inmarsat, it delivers a compelling combination of broadband speed, a reliable and high-quality service, and global coverage.  XpressLink supports always-on data speeds of 768kbps, with a committed information rate of 192kbps, when the VSAT service is active.

Inmarsat issued an invitation to distribution partners, service providers and system integrators in early March to confirm interest in becoming an XpressLink dealer, with a positive response from more than 80 per cent.  Negotiations with the majority of applicants are now at an advanced stage.  The initial 12 dealers that have completed the rigorous selection process are:

  • Anchor Marine Equipment & Repair Company
  • AND Group
  • Arskom Marine
  • DH-INTERCOM
  • Elcome
  • Hellenic Radio Services
  • Navarino
  • One Net
  • Otesat-Maritel
  • Satlink
  • Station Satcom
  • Tile Marine.
