(SEOUL, South Korea) — Inmarsat and Intellian have signed an outline agreement that will support major enhancements to Inmarsat’s FleetBroadband service for the next decade and beyond.
The new agreement will see Intellian design and manufacture a new generation of FleetBroadband terminals that will support the existing I-4 network alongside the major advances coming with Inmarsat’s sixth-generation satellite constellation, the first of which is scheduled for launch in 2020. The next generation terminals will be significantly lower cost and feature a host of new capabilities, including much faster throughput speeds.
Inmarsat’s sixth-generation (Inmarsat-6) satellite constellation will be the first Inmarsat constellation to feature dual-payload satellites, each supporting L-band and Ka-band services. The I-6 satellites will deliver a step change in the capacity of Inmarsat’s L-band services, supporting a new generation of capabilities – from advanced global safety services and very low cost mobile services to Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
