Thursday, August 18, 2011

Two independent international shipping companies acted immediately and ordered 28 XpressLink systems from Ship Equip.

 

“XpressLink has been enthusiastically embraced by the market, and customers have been quick to respond says CSO Gilles A Gillesen. The cost/benefit have reached a very attractive level and we are very glad customers now see the benefits in this solution”.   
 
Inmarsat XpressLink was announced in July as the bridge to Inmarsat Global Xpress to be launched in 2014.
 
XpressLink delivers the best from two worlds. As a bridge to the Global Xpress satellite communication to be launched by Ship Equip owner Inmarsat in 2014, Ship Equip is offering a managed service of VSAT from Ship Equip bundled with FleetBroadband. The flat fee service delivers 512 Kbps/512 Kbps with a minimum guaranteed data rate of 128 Kbps.
 
“This service brings communication speeds for maritime users a long step towards speeds that are common for land based offices, and should open up a new way of thinking about communication ship – shore. I think now is a good time to act for Ship Owners who has been awaiting the development in Maritime Communication” says Chief Sales Officer Gilles A Gillesen.
 
XpressLink has a suggested retail price of US$ 2,999/month for 60 months, and includes:
 
•               Ship Equip Ku-band solution, upgradable to Ka-band
•               FleetBroadband (FB500) hardware
