11 March 2014: Inmarsat has appointed NSSLGlobal as the latest Value Added Reseller (VAR) for Global Xpress (GX).
NSSLGlobal is a service provider for satellite communications solutions serving European military and government markets.
The company has been offering and supporting Inmarsat’s services for more than 30 years and is well placed to capture the growing demand for higher bandwidth and more sophisticated IP services.
NSSLGlobal was one of the founding service partners for Inmarsat’s maritime safety service – a crucial component of the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS).
It has also been a distribution partner for Inmarsat’s L-band services since 2009 and recently signed a GX VAR agreement for maritime services.
“NSSLGlobal has been one of Inmarsat’s most successful government partners over many years, and has unique insight into the requirements of end-users on land and at sea,” said Andy Start, President, Inmarsat Global Government.
Sally-Anne Ray, Managing Director, NSSLGlobal, said: “Providing mission critical secure communications has always been at the core of NSSLGlobal’s business, which is why Inmarsat has always been our partner of choice for this important market.
“With the rising bandwidth demands of our end-users, alongside the requirement for quick mobility, a seamless global coverage and the highest service availability, Global Xpress will be a significant development for our global government customers.”
Global Xpress will be the first globally available Ka-band broadband satellite network providing high bandwidth services to a range of land, maritime and aviation terminals when it is fully deployed by the end of 2014.
