Jumbo Chooses Inmarsat XpressLink(TM) For Entire Fleet

SMM 2012, HAMBURG, Germany, September 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
  • Netherlands company Jumbo signs with Inmarsat to equip fleet with XpressLink™
  • Ship owners increasingly look for high data speeds and fixed monthly fee
  • Latest endorsement for game-changing, next-generation service Global Xpress®

SMM 2012  -  Hall B6 Stand 114  - Inmarsat (LSE: ISAT.L), the leading provider of global mobile satellite communications services, announces that Netherland-based Jumbo, a leading heavy-lift shipping company, is to equip its fleet with Inmarsat's service XpressLink™.

Within the scope of the agreement is the option for a free upgrade to Global Xpress® in 2014, Inmarsat's game-changing, next-generation global satellite network which will effectively double the available bandwidth.

Assad Khan, International Sales Manager, Inmarsat, comments: "Our market predominantly comprises commercial worldwide traffic which requires a reliable and truly global service. There is a shift in thinking among ship owners who are, in increasing numbers, looking for higher-volume communication systems with high data speeds and a fixed monthly fee."

Marco Cevat, IT Manager for Jumbo, comments: "During the initial tender phase we selected different parties. The choice for Inmarsat was based on the fact that it delivers a fully managed Ku-L-band system at a fixed rate. We were also impressed with the level of consultative thinking from Inmarsat. The demand for more bandwidth is increasing on a monthly basis and with this solution we are confident that Inmarsat's combined package of VSAT and FleetBroadband will deliver us a reliable future proof connection."

Frank Coles, President, Inmarsat Maritime, said: "The choice by Jumbo endorses the confidence we at Inmarsat have in the value of this solution. The offer is combined with the upgrade to the future proofed solution, Global Xpress."
