Stratos Activates New FleetBroadband Pricing Plan

press release
Thursday, September 15, 2011

Stratos is First to Activate New FleetBroadband Pricing Plan for Single-Vessel Operators and Small Fleets.New plans meet high data-usage requirements of yachts and other vessels.

 
Stratos Global, the leading global provider of advanced mobile and fixed-site remote communications solutions, today announced it is the first Inmarsat Distribution Partner to activate Inmarsat’s new FleetBroadband Large Money Bundle for single-vessel operators and fleets with fewer than 10 vessels. The new Large Money Bundles offer the high performance (up to 432kbps), global coverage, simplicity and reliability of Inmarsat FleetBroadband – in addition to The Stratos Advantage value-added services – all at an affordable, fixed monthly rate. The packages include monthly data-connectivity plans as large as 5GB, in addition to highly competitive rates for voice calls.
 

The new plans meet the increasing data requirements of yachts and other vessels. The plans provide a high level of monthly bandwidth for email, web browsing, social networking, GSM and other popular applications. With these plans, FleetBroadband is available on terminals as small as 25cm. The first FleetBroadband Large Money Bundle was activated by Stratos Channel Partner e3 Systems (e3) for one of the largest private sailing yachts built by Royal Huisman in Holland. “These new plans are generating a high level of interest among the yachting community,” said e3 Managing Director Roger Horner. “They offer predictable costs, regional and global coverage, flexible usage and payment programs, as well as the added value of The Stratos Advantage services.”
 

Horner added, “We activated the plan onboard the yacht within days of its launch. The yacht’s captain now is examining Stratos Dashboard online monitoring tools and Stratos Trench firewall to ensure the highest possible broadband performance, security and cost control. These plans are a perfect solution for sailing yachts, yachts with itineraries outside traditional VSAT footprints and yachts with space and weight restrictions on which it is difficult to install a 1m VSAT antenna.” Stratos President and CEO Jim Parm said, “With its depth of experience and creative approach to electronics integration, e3 is well positioned to bring the benefits of these new FleetBroadband Money Bundles to demanding vessel owners in many key geographic regions. We look forward to working with e3 and our hundreds of other capable Channel Partners to help vessel owners adopt the wide range of flexible pricing programs for which Inmarsat has become well known.”
