Network Innovations is a Distribution Partner for Inmarsat. Inmarsat has been at the forefront of mobile satellite services for over 31 years and their current fleet of 11-satellites provides seamless mobile voice and data communications around the world, enabling users to make phone calls, track vessels and vehicles, send instant & distress messages and connect to the internet – whenever and wherever they need – on land, at sea or in the air.
BGAN provides simultaneous voice and data services on a near global basis. IP services include both shared and dedicated on-demand IP streaming rates to accomodate a variety of IP applications from email to live video. BGAN also provides telephone services, SMS text messaging, Fax and ISDN.
FleetBroadband is the first maritime communications service to provide cost-effective broadband data and voice, simultaneously, through a compact antenna on a near global basis. Similar to BGAN but for maritime applications, FleetBroadband provides shared and streaming IP services, voice, SMS, Fax and ISDN. Three models of terminals are available: SAILOR 150, 250 & 500.
Inmarsat’s FleetPhone service is a fixed phone service ideal for use on smaller vessels where voice communications is the primary requirement or on vessels where additional voice lines are needed. It provides a low-cost, global satellite phone service option for those working or sailing outside of cellular coverage. The FleetPhone solution consists of below-decks equipment (Oceana 400 & 800) which is connected to a small external antenna.
Inmarsat’s voice service provides high-quality voice with a reliable connection on a near global basis. The service is accessed via a handset for mobile voice communications, or through terminals providing a fixed-line solution for essential voice communications in areas outside cellular coverage. Products using the GSPS service include the IsatPhone Pro and IsatPhone Link.
Inmarsat C is a digital satellite communication system whereby anything that can be encoded into digital format, whether text, numeric data from instruments or other information in digital form, can be sent and received over the system. The Inmarsat C system is known as store-and-forward messaging system. When sending a ship-to-shore message, it is edited on the terminal and then transmitted in a series of data packets to an Inmarsat C land earth station (LES). The LES acts as an interface (or gateway) between the satellite and the terrestrial telecommunications network. The LES stores the data packets, assemblies them into a single message and forwards it over the telecommunication network to its addressed destination. Inmarsat C and Mini C mobile terminals, which are used to send and receive messages, are low-cost devices and small enough to be hand-carried or fitted to any vessel, vehicle or aircraft.
IsatM2M is a very low data rate service providing a two-way short burst data service for machine-to-machine communications. It currently serves customers who need to track and monitor mobile or fixed assets, wherever they are in the world, such as a fleet of trucks. Both DMR800 and SureLinx support IsatM2M.
IsatData Pro is a data communication service specifically designed to provide visibility and communications with people and equipment anywhere, anytime. Whether used for managing trucks, fishing vessels or oil & gas equipment, IsatData Pro applications include transferring electronic documents and vehicle telemetry information, text-messaging remote workers and maintaining up-to-date driver logs and many more. The IsatData Pro service deliver messages within seconds, making IsatData Pro ideal for sending information to people operating in high-risk areas, reporting alarm conditions and retrieving logs from remote equipment during an emergency. IsatData Pro supports To-Mobile message size of 10,000 Bytes, From-Mobile message size of: 6,400 Bytes and typical Message Delivery Time: < 15 seconds.
The Inmarsat Global Xpress network is planned for the end of 2014, and will provide mobile broadband speeds of up to 50Mbps to terminals as small as 60cm, and speeds of up to 10Mbps to terminals as small as 20cm. Based on the next-generation Inmarsat-5 satellites, it will be the first time a commercial operator has utilised Ka-band radio frequencies to deliver a global satellite service.
Fleet provides voice, fax, and data communications for both ocean-going and coastal vessels, delivered via a range of antenna sizes to suit different types of vessel. Make phone calls, as well as access email and the internet using Mobile ISDN, or stay online all the time with the Mobile Packet Data Service (MPDS), where you only pay for the data sent and received.
The predecessor to IsatM2M. A two-way data communications service that uses very small equipment (DMR800), with integrated GPS, for data transfer, remote monitoring, tracking and tracing.
A precursor to BGAN, the Global Area Network (GAN) service offers high-quality voice, plus a combination of the 64kbps Mobile ISDN and packet-based MPDS data services via a portable terminal.
Introduced in 1995, based on digital technology and capable of two-way voice telephony, alerting, fax and data services. Operates only in the reduced coverage offered by the Inmarsat-3 spot beams, but its notebook size has made it one of the most popular Inmarsat services on land and at sea.
