Press Release
Wednesday, August 08, 2012

Inmarsat wins contract with Malaysian shipping giant MISC to outfit 46 ships with XpressLink SatCom systems.

The XpressLink solution from Inmarsat is a fully integrated and managed combination of VSAT and market-leading FleetBroadband(TM) delivering unlimited data availability across the world's oceans. It includes an option for MISC Berhad to double its available bandwidth at a pre-determined monthly rate when Inmarsat's Global Xpress(R) constellation becomes commercially available from 2014.

Inmarsat XpressLink combines Inmarsat's high volume Ku-band VSAT system with the versatility of FleetBroadband in a single package. The integration of both Inmarsat services means that ship and shore communications can be seamlessly and professionally managed and supported end-to-end thanks to Inmarsat's state-of-the-art global infrastructure. The dual system design also results in unmatched redundancy delivering near 99.9% uptime.

Captain S Rajalingam, Vice President Fleet Management System at MISC Berhad commented: "It is important for us to have ample bandwidth to manage our ship and shore operational systems and meet the communication needs of our seafarers at sea. During our sea trials, we compared XpressLink with a number of competitive offerings and XpressLink impressed us with its performance. Inmarsat XpressLink offered the best value proposition delivering reliable, unlimited data usage on both the VSAT and FleetBroadband services."
