Marlink Achieves full Inmarsat Global Xpress Readiness
[Via Satellite 10-13-2016] Marlink has announced the implementation of Inmarsat Global Xpress (GX) across its global network infrastructure and service delivery platform is now complete. Following successful installation and testing at all three Global Xpress “Meet Me Points” in the Indian Ocean Region, Atlantic Ocean Region and Pacific Ocean Region, Marlink will be able to offer Fleet Xpress globally along with its maritime digital solutions, such as XChange and SkyFile.
Combined with Fleet Xpress, XChange and SkyFile will enable maritime clients and their vessels to achieve further operational efficiencies and cost reductions, as well as boosting crew wellbeing on-board, the company said. Also available to Fleet Xpress users is Marlink’s messaging and data-transfer solution for ship-shore communications, in addition to a solution offering full control for private crew communications (voice, internet access and social media).
“The combination of the power of Fleet Xpress with the value-added services offered by Marlink enables ship owners and operators to enhance their business intelligence and improve operational efficiency and as a result brings the concept of ‘smart shipping’ closer to reality,” said Ronald Spithout, Inmarsat Maritime President.
