Thrane & Thrane receives FleetBroadband 250 approval

  • Friday, 11 January 2008 | News

Thrane & Thrane has become the first manufacturer to supply terminals for both of the FleetBroadband 500 and 250 services.

The company has received Inmarsat Type Approval for its SAILOR 250 FleetBroadband terminal and expects to ship the first units before the end of January 2008.

Following the April 2007 launch and September 2007 market introduction of the SAILOR FleetBroadband products, Thrane & Thrane says it has experienced an "overwhelming interest" and has already received a number of orders for the terminals.

The first consignment of SAILOR 500 FleetBroadband was shipped on December 14th 2007, with some of these terminals having already been made fully operational at sea.

SAILOR 250 FleetBroadband offers data speeds up to 284 kbps with an antenna that is smaller than today's Fleet33 system, with a diameter less than 30 cm and weighing just 5 kg.

"The fantastic interest in SAILOR FleetBroadband makes us confident that these products will be very successful in the market, especially as more and more operators see the inherent benefits that FleetBroadband can bring to operation," said Casper Jensen, manager maritime global marketing for Thrane & Thrane.
