Fleet Xpress takes maritime communications to the next level to deliver the high data speeds enabled by Inmarsat’s Global Xpress Ka-band technology combined with the proven reliability of Inmarsat’s flagship FleetBroadband L-band service.
Fleet Xpress is powering the maritime data revolution. Guaranteed global bandwidth ensures that ship owners and operators can improve business intelligence, enhance efficiency, performance and crew welfare, and in turn run their businesses more effectively.
One network, one provider
Inmarsat owns and manages the entire Fleet Xpress service, from the satellite constellations to the service networks. The result is one easy-to-manage standardised platform, offering exceptional performance, security and reliability. And because Inmarsat also guarantees the performance of the chosen bandwidth option, seafarers can be confident they are always-connected, no matter where they are at sea.
Plug-and-play terminals for quick deployment
Our leading Inmarsat manufacturing partners have developed a range of 1m and 60cm user terminals for Fleet Xpress, which have been tested and approved by Inmarsat. The terminals deliver high throughput and are pre-commissioned on the Fleet Xpress network for quick and easy plug-and-play deployment to ensure simple, fast installation and servicing, anywhere in the world.
Managing the service
The Inmarsat Gateway is the customer interface for the Fleet Xpress service to enable Inmarsat partners, ship operators and end-users to manage the service. The platform allows users to access differing authorised levels of information, including service provisioning, service configuration, service monitoring, assurance data and the purchase of voice credits.
The evolution of Fleet Xpress
The Inmarsat Service Enablement Platform will power a revolutionary new maritime applications ecosystem, taking Fleet Xpress beyond ordinary broadband communications.
It allows Inmarsat’s Certified Application Partners (CAPs) to develop and publish innovative, content-rich applications over the Fleet Xpress service, such as the real-time analysis of data, including engine monitoring, weather information and fuel consumption rates.
This new maritime ecosystem allows ship owners and managers to unlock the potential of the data revolution at sea and transform the way shipping operates. Applications can deliver real benefits in operational efficiency, safety and compliance, IT, security and crew welfare.
