Intellian to upgrade Inmarsat's FleetBroadband development

Wednesday 14 February 2018 | 12:07 CET | News

Inmarsat and Intellian entered into an outline agreement that will support major upgrades to Inmarsat’s FleetBroadband service for the next decade and beyond. Under the terms of the deal, Intellian will 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.

Inmarsat said its terminals will have significantly lower costs and feature a host of new features, including much faster throughput speeds. Inmarsat said its sixth generation (Inmarsat-6) satellite constellation will be the first to feature dual-payload satellites, each supporting L-band and Ka-band services. The I-6 satellites will advance 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 IoT applications.
