Immarsat launches free shore-to-ship call service for rescue centres

Inmarsat now provides free shore-to-ship priority voice calling for rescue co-ordination centres (RCC) over its FleetBroadband and existing and evolved services, including Inmarsat B, Fleet F77/55/33 and Mini M.

The service allows a maritime RCC to place a priority voice call to any ship equipped with Inmarsat equipment, with the space segment of the call being free of charge.

To place a call the RCC dials a unique number. They are then asked to enter their account number (PIN), followed by the phone number of the Inmarsat maritime terminal they wish to contact. The telephone call will then be placed with distress priority.
