Intellian introduces Fleet Xpress global delivery programme

07 September 2016: Intellian Technologies has partnered with Inmarsat to accelerate the transition process for customers seeking to adopt the new Inmarsat Fleet Xpress service.

The partnership between Intellian and Inmarsat will simplify the procurement and installation of shipboard equipment, enabling Inmarsat and its Value Added Resellers (VARs) to transition entire fleets of vessels in any global location as quickly and efficiently as possible.

“The market is ready for Fleet Xpress and Intellian is ready to enable rapid deployment,” said Eric Sung, President and CEO of Intellian

Overall solution

“We’re very pleased to partner with Inmarsat on accelerating the rollout of the overall solution.  Customers will appreciate how easy this makes it for them to move fleets onto the Fleet Xpress service wherever they are as quickly and seamlessly as possible.”

Inmarsat VARs can now source all Fleet Xpress related shipboard equipment, including the Intellian GX100 or GX60 above deck unit combined with Intellian’s FleetBroadband 500 system, and a fully pre-configured and pre-commissioned Fleet Xpress rack directly from Intellian.

The Intellian Fleet Xpress Solution will arrive at the pier ready for immediate installation and can be configured to include any of the following in order to meet their exact needs:

  • Intellian GX100 (1m) or GX60 (60cm) Above Deck Unit
  • Intellian FB500 Above Deck Unit
  • Fully pre-configured and pre-commissioned server rack including:
    • Intellian’s All-in-One Below Deck Terminal (BDT), including integrated GX modem, 8 port Ethernet Switch, and built in AC power supply all in a single 1U 19” Rack Type module
    • Intellian’s newly released FB500R Rack Mountable BDT
    • Inmarsat’s Network Service Device (NSD), a required component for the Fleet Xpress service
    • External router
    • Managed Power Controller
    • Uninterrupted Power Supply

Turnkey solution

Intellian will deliver the fully integrated solution at the same EXW price from any of its three global logistics centers, located in Korea, Rotterdam and Irvine, CA and can offer an average lead time on Fleet Xpress products of under one week.

“Only Intellian can deliver this turnkey solution from three continents, giving us the shortest lead times in the business,” said Eric Sung.

“This advantage makes Intellian the quickest and most cost effective choice for adopting the Fleet Xpress service.”

Logistics centres

The company will also leverage its three global logistics centres to provide easy access to regular Fleet Xpress training classes held throughout the year. With an emphasis on standardisation, repeatability and building a common, detailed knowledge base of the entire Fleet Xpress solution, Intellian is keenly focused on enabling an outstanding customer experience for those who chose its brand.

“Since the beginning of our engagement with Intellian on development of the v100GX, they have continuously proven to be a valued partner, dedicated to solving problems with innovative solutions,” said Ronald Spithout, President of Inmarsat Maritime.

Outstanding example

“This Global Delivery programme is another outstanding example of how they understand our business objectives and collaborate to achieve mutual success,”
