About Inmarsat

Inmarsat owns and operates the world’s most reliable satellite and ground networks, delivering global, mobile connectivity to customers where and when they need it most.

Set up by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) in 1979 to provide a satellite communications network that would protect the lives of mariners anywhere at sea, we were the first satellite operator to meet the stringent requirements of the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) for global safety communications.

Today our satellite communication services are not only saving lives but empowering people and communities, enabling business and trade, and supporting humanitarian work in the most remote and challenging locations.

FAQs

What is the difference between your connectivity services and your managed connectivity services?

Inmarsat has provided land connectivity services almost since its inception in 1979. These services are used across all industries, principally to support communications in areas with low connectivity or where a highly-reliable form of connectivity is needed. They include IsatPhone 2, BGAN and GX.

Our managed connectivity services represent a step change in the capability that we can offer our customers. Instead of providing you with connectivity, we work with you to understand your business challenges, building solutions which support your business strategy on a global level, to help you get ahead of your competition.

Inmarsat has provided land connectivity services for over two decades. These services are used across all industries, principally to support communications in areas with poor terrestrial network coverage or where a highly reliable form of connectivity is needed. They include IsatPhone 2, BGAN and Global Xpress.

Our managed connectivity services represent a step change in the capability that we can offer our customers. Instead of providing you just with connectivity, we work with you to understand your business challenges, building solutions which support your business strategy on a global level, to help you get ahead of your competition.

Working with one global connectivity partner means you benefit from economies of scale, aligned experiences and enhanced business integration. We design SLAs that support your unique needs to ensure you are always connected wherever you are, all supported by our world-leading connectivity services.

What is the difference between your managed connectivity services and your managed IoT services?

Both managed connectivity services and managed IoT services share the same common managed services approaches:

  • Custom SLAs
  • Equipment leasing
  • Monitoring
  • Custom reporting
  • Continuous improvement methodology
  • Licensing and regulatory management
  • Installation and training

However, while our managed connectivity services deliver satellite connectivity, our managed IoT services approach offers additional IoT technologies, which we manage:

  • Industrial IoT orchestration platform
  • Software defined gateways
  • Edge connectivity

Why trust Inmarsat for managed connectivity services?

Inmarsat is an established and trusted company with a proven track record of consistent financial success in satellite communications for 40 years.  We were established by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) to provide satellite safety services at sea and continue to go above and beyond Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) requirements by exceeding the demand for satellite and ground network availability of 99.9 per cent. Every day two million people rely on our safety services across land, sea and air.

While other companies may provide managed connectivity services, only Inmarsat can support its managed service provision with a wholly owned, ultra-reliable global network, which we are continuing to invest in and innovate. Working with us means we can ensure your solution gets the connectivity uptime levels that meet and surpass those stipulated in your SLA, so your business can focus on what it does best.

Do you only offer satellite connectivity?

Inmarsat owns and operates the world’s best global portfolio of satellite networks, specifically designed for customer mobility. Naturally we build our solutions using our leading satellite connectivity services. However, our aim is to connect anything to anything anywhere. We know that satellite is only one part of the answer and so we build solutions that use various types of edge connectivity (LoRaWAN, LPWAN, NB-IoT etc) before we then communicate the data via a more long-range form of connectivity. Most of the time this long distance (backhaul) connectivity will be our satellite connectivity, but it could involve a blend of cellular, fibre or even other satellite operators’ connectivity. What matters is the outcome for your business.

Our heritage as a safety at seas organisation means that we have very high service levels and capabilities that other managed service providers won’t necessarily have. We are used to operating in arduous environments and we can provide solutions to customers to solve some of their toughest challenges in some of their toughest locations.
