NSSLGlobal appointed GX reseller

NSSLGlobal has been appointed as a value-added reseller (VAR) for Global Xpress (GX), Inmarsat’s forthcoming Ka-band network.

Other currently contracted GX VARs include Navarino, SingTel, Telemar, GMPCS, and Imtech Marine.

Inmarsat expects to launch the first three of its GX satellites by the close of 2013, and to complete the full constellation by the end of 2014.

The agreement it has signed with Inmarsat will see UK-based service provider NSSLGlobal become a value-added reseller of Global Xpress for the maritime market.

“In building our VAR network for Global Xpress, NSSLGlobal’s understanding of our business, combined with their decades of experience serving the maritime industry, makes them an excellent partner for Inmarsat’s revolutionary GX service,” said Frank Coles, president, Inmarsat Maritime.

“We continue to make strong progress in building our global channel network in advance of the launch of our first Ka-band satellite at the end of this year.”

Sally-Anne Ray, chief operating officer, NSSLGlobal, added that her company is “delighted to have been chosen as a Global Xpress launch partner.”

“VSAT communications has traditionally been a luxury in the maritime market and consequently only gained traction with customers who have the capital expenditure, space and data requirements to accommodate an always-on VSAT system,” she said.

“Global Xpress represents the next generation of communication for the whole maritime industry, as it provides a cost-effective Broadband solution that supports the rapidly growing bandwidth demands of operational and crew welfare applications.”

In related news, NSSLGlobal is also to open a new office in Singapore on April 15th, with the aim of supporting its key clients at a regional level. Existing NSSL clients operating in Asia include Teekay Marine, BW Fleet Management, MTM Ship Management and AET Tankers.
