by Staff Reporter | April 25th, 2012

A total of 12 firms will form part of a global network of XpressLink dealers. XpressLink reportedly offers versatile high-speed broadband by using a combination of Ku-band VSAT and FleetBroadband.

Free upgrade
The service reportedly delivers a connection speed of up to 768kbps, with a committed information rate of 192kbps when the VSAT is active. As part of the XpressLink deal, customers are being offered a range of ‘bundled packages’, based on expected usage, at a fixed monthly cost. The service is also the only approved pathway to Inmarsat Global Xpress, with a guaranteed free upgrade when the next-generation Ka-band service becomes operational in 2013.

The dealers who have signed up for XpressLink so far are: Anchor Marine Equipment and Repair Company, AND Group, Arscom, DH-Intercom, Elcome, Hellenic Radio Services, Navarino, One Net, Otesat-Maritel, Satlink, Station Satcom and Tile Marine.

New recruits
The dealers who have signed up for XpressLink so far are: Anchor Marine Equipment and Repair Company, AND Group, Arscom, DH-Intercom, Elcome, Hellenic Radio Services, Navarino, One Net, Otesat-Maritel, Satlink, Station Satcom and Tile Marine. “We are excited by this endorsement of the XpressLink service as a gateway to Global Xpress,” said Frank Coles, president, Inmarsat Maritime. He added, “They will not support a service unless they know it offers demonstrable value to their customers – value that is future-proofed with the transition path to Global Xpress. Several of the dealers have already closed deals, and we expect more soon.”

Customers will be given an intelligent below-deck system unit and access to the online customer portal as part of the XpressLink package, which is being managed end-to-end by Inmarsat.
