Inmarsat Expands Microwave Backbone in the Gulf of Mexico
Inmarsat has announced the extension of the capabilities of its microwave backbone in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM) through the introduction of a new ‘Stabilized Microwave’ service. Designed to expand the reach of the company’s GoM network to include deep-water structures, the Stabilized Microwave device is expected to offer higher bandwidth and lower latency, enabling clients to experience the same quality of service as they would in their on-shore offices. Initially being deployed in the Mississippi Canyon Field in the GoM, Stabilized Microwave will enable Inmarsat to expand its microwave network into much deeper waters off the shelf of the Gulf.
