GRC Ltd and Network Innovations secure world’s first commercial Global Xpress Enterprise customer.


Global RadioData Communication Ltd, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of satellite services, working with Network Innovations (NI), a leading Inmarsat partner , becomes the first company in the world to have an Enterprise commercial GX terminal go live commercially.  The Global Xpress solution is deployed in Africa for a major mining organisation and utilises GRC’s Scytale mobile communication system to provide secure, reliable and flexible communications from the field to anywhere on the planet.

Partnering with Network Innovations (NI), GRC was able to capitalize on NI’s past successes in deploying Global Xpress test terminals worldwide on land and at sea, for a wide array of customers.  As one of the leading suppliers for Global Xpress hardware and airtime, NI’s leadership and expertise proved to be a valuable contribution to first the field testing period and finally the adoption by the customer of the new Global Xpress service.

Connecting the remotest regions in the world,  Global Xpress is the first high-speed broadband network spanning the globe, offering seamless connectivity and advanced data services on land, at sea and in the air and is the first commercially available global satellite service that utilises Ka-band radio frequencies.

GRC Ltd’s Scytale solution provides flexible, reliable and cost effective communications in areas where no existing network is in place.  Housed in a rugged, Peli backpack and weighing approximately 10 kilograms, Scytale provides a rapidly deployable private, VoIP, GSM and data network and is fully compatible with Global Xpress.

Tony Talbot, Technical Sales Manager for GRC said: “We are delighted to have secured the first commercial Enterprise customer for the new Global Xpress service, anywhere in the world.  Working with our partner Network Innovations, for the first time we are able to supply Ka band, high-speed broadband communications on a truly global scale.  The Global Xpress service will provide organisations, which operate worldwide, a satellite communication solution that is flexible, cost effective and negates the need for multiple hardware options”.

“The key for the customer was to have a global solution that would surpass the current offerings but also save them money on the service, installation, maintenance and training. Global Xpress combined with Scytale was the perfect match and after several months of field testing we are delighted to have the customer online commercially” said Eric Verheylewegen Vice President and General Manager at Network Innovations.
