Inmarsat showcases satellite technologies that enable the ‘Internet of Everywhere’

1 June 2015: At the 26th annual Information and Communications Technology (ICT), conference in Asia-Pacific, CommunicAsia, Inmarsat will showcase its latest innovative technologies and services, which are enabling the ‘Internet of Everywhere’.

“The way we use technology to work, live, play and learn is evolving. No matter where we are, or where our devices are located, we require and demand high-speed internet access. With two of our three Global Xpress satellites successfully launched, we are close to the completion of our fifth generation constellation. It will push the boundaries of satellite communications and deliver seamless, high-speed broadband communications anywhere in the globe – creating opportunities for everything to be connected anywhere, anytime”, said Michele Franci, CTO of Inmarsat.

Exhibiting this year at Marina Bay Sands (booth 1S2-01), Inmarsat will present its portfolio of satellite solutions for end-users in government, maritime, aviation and enterprise sectors.

As part of the development of the next generation of global mobile satellite technology and applications, Inmarsat is also opening up its platform to third party developers; encouraging new ideas that will change the way satellite communications are implemented on land, at sea and in the air. At CommunicAsia, delegates will have the opportunity to learn more about how Inmarsat is working with the developer community.

Global Xpress

Inmarsat’s Global Xpress (GX) will be the first high-speed broadband network to span the world, delivering seamless, globally available connectivity on land, at sea and in the air, and will bring to life the prospect of the ‘Internet of Everywhere’.

Pushing the boundaries of satellite communications, GX will deliver a high-speed broadband service that will offer seamless global coverage from a single operator, with speeds up to 100 times faster than the company’s fourth generation (I-4) constellation.

The third Global Xpress satellite has safely arrived in Kazakhstan in anticipation of its forthcoming launch.

In preparation for this, Inmarsat has recently confirmed Type Approval of Cobham SATCOM’s EXPLORER 7100GX Global Xpress terminal, which will be on display at CommunicAsia 2015.
