Navarino and Inmarsat to enhance maritime broadband

Navarino will bring more than 1200 vessels to the Fleet Xpress service over a six-year period, after entering into an agreement with Inmarsat.

Fleet Xpress, the Global Xpress maritime solution, delivers high-speed broadband connectivity across oceans around the world. It also facilitates ‘Connected Ship’ applications.

Navarino provides satellite communications products and services for the maritime industry, covering all types of merchant vessels. It has an established and steadily growing international resellers’ network, and offers installation capability at major ports around the world.

“This is a significant agreement for Inmarsat and our new Fleet Xpress service,” said Ronald Spithout, president of Inmarsat Maritime.

“Extending our strategic alliance with Inmarsat to bring Fleet Xpress to our portfolio represents a natural progression in a cooperation positioning Navarino at the cutting edge of maritime satellite communications,” said Dimitris Tsikopoulos, CEO of Navarino. “Both companies are committed to growing maritime broadband for diverse customer requirements, and to the investments and support needed to nurture this exciting market.”

Inmarsat Maritime intends to transition more than 2600 existing XpressLink installations to Fleet Xpress. It will also convert its committed XpressLink backlog to Fleet Xpress over the next three years.

Inmarsat’s maritime channel partners include all the leading maritime communications resellers.
