New Inmarsat service for yachts

ADVERTISEMENT

Inmarsat, a provider of global mobile satellite communications services, has appointed e3 Systems as a Value Added Reseller (VAR) of Global Xpress (GX), a global, superfast broadband service with speeds up to 50Mbps. E3 will focus on the superyacht market.



E3 Systems, which supplies integrated communications, networking and advanced IT solutions to yachts, has been an Inmarsat service provider for 13 years.



“E3 Systems is renowned for its commitment to quality in the maritime market and has been a valued partner of Inmarsat since 2000,” Frank Coles, president of Inmarsat Maritime, said in a company statement. “They were early pioneers in communication technologies for the yachting market, which included a number of notable firsts – including the first installation of Fleet 77 and the first Sea Tel 4003 VSAT on a yacht. Their expertise in both communications technologies and the yachting sector marks them out as an ideal company to partner with us on the exciting launch of GX.”



GX is based on Ka-band technology and will deliver higher performance through more compact terminals at a lower cost than existing VSAT services. It will offer global coverage and reliability, and is complemented by Inmarsat’s FleetBroadband for resilience in challenging environments.



E3 Systems will continue to offer the full range of Inmarsat maritime solutions, including FleetBroadband Unlimited, which is began offering in April.



“The GX network is truly a game-changer, whichever way you look at it: more data, higher speed, lower cost and global coverage, all from one service provider,” said Roger Horner, managing director of e3 Systems. “Inmarsat has addressed all the details that will be important to our end customers with innovations such as lightweight antennas, adaptable service plans, redundancy, systems engineering and compliance. More than anything else, however, they have shown their willingness to listen to partners and customers to ensure that the service they deliver ticks every box. It is this attention to detail that will make GX a success.”
