Inmarsat Completes I4 Repositioning
Inmarsat has gone live with its Inmarsat-4 F1 satellite, completing a project to relocate its broadband satellites to provide global coverage, the company announced.
The move also completes the company’s network optimization program, which required repositioning its constellation of I-4 broadband satellites. The new global I-4 satellite regions now include I-4 Americas at 98 degrees West, I-4 EMEA at 25 degrees East and I-4 Asia-Pacific at 143.5 degrees East
The project also affects Inmarsat’s satellite phone services, including IsatPhone, LandPhone and FleetPhone, which are available on both the I-4 EMEA and I-4 Asia-Pacific satellites.
