First tests showed some very good performances regarding the voice quality this comparing to other satellite networks. Sending SMS and GPS positions through local French GSM Operators turned out successfully.

Using the handset is very simple and intuitive. The terminal is very resistant making it a confident communication tool in harsh environmental conditions. This said, we will be happy if you could share these impressions with us.

Don’t hesitate to visit our website to get more information on it: http://www.e-sat.fr/en/networks/inmarsat-isatphone-pro/ and join us with the attendance of Inmarsat at the CCFS – 39 avenue Pierre 1er de Serbie – Paris 8ème – on Wednesday the 23rd of June at 2:30 pm.

Inmarsat mobile broadband network goes global

The era of global coverage for Inmarsat mobile broadband communications has arrived, following completion of Inmarsat's network-optimising satellite repositioning programme.

The new global I-4 satellite network went live when broadband services were successfully transferred to the Inmarsat-4 (I-4) F1 spacecraft at 20:00 UTC on Tuesday, 24 February.

The new global I-4 satellite regions are:

  • Americas - from 98 degrees West
  • EMEA - from 25 degrees East
  • Asia-Pacific - from 143.5 degrees East.

Also involved in the transfer were Inmarsat's satellite phone services (SPS) - IsatPhone, LandPhone and FleetPhone - which have now commenced operation on two I-4 satellites.

As a result, satellite phone services are now available on both the I-4 EMEA and I-4 Asia-Pacific satellites.

The restoration of services on the I-4 F1 brings Inmarsat's satellite repositioning programme to a successful conclusion.
