Inmarsat, a provider of global mobile satellite communications services, announced that FleetBroadband terminals manufactured by Intellian are now approved for use with XpressLink, Inmarsat’s fully-integrated Ku-band and L-band solution that utilizes both VSAT and FleetBroadband terminals.
XpressLink has become a popular option for shipowners around the world, providing broadband speed data and voice connectivity across a fully redundant and highly resilient service for a fixed monthly fee. XpressLink also offers an upgrade path to Inmarsat’s forthcoming Ka-band service, Global Xpress, which will achieve full global coverage by the end of 2014.
Intellian and Inmarsat partnered in 2011 to begin development of Ka-band terminals for Global Xpress. The companies have since expanded the partnership and in March, Intellian unveiled three new terminals designed to support all FleetBroadband services. Intellian terminals come with a three-year global warranty, providing vessel owners with the comfort and knowledge that they are investing in a terminal that will not only provide the most reliable connectivity on the seas today, but will continue doing so long into the future.
