[Via Satellite 09-04-13] Inmarsat, a provider of global mobile satellite communications services, and Telespazio, a satellite services company, are teaming up to develop joint offerings for energy and machine-to-machine (M2M) customers in the European Region.

Mobile satellite services (MSS) have been an established part of the communications mix in the energy sector, frequently operating in areas that are remote from fixed-line and wireless networks. Both companies will look to collaborate on specific projects to enhance their services and product offerings for this industry, particularly in the high growth area of M2M and remote applications.

The companies are currently co-exhibiting at the Offshore Europe Conference and Exhibition in Aberdeen, Scotland. They are presenting their joint capabilities in mobile and fixed broadband services for the oil and gas sector, with solutions that include Inmarsat’s portable BGAN, BGAN Link, BGAN M2M services and terminals.
