Open up new levels of connectivity and guaranteed performance wherever you go.
Inmarsat’s Fleet Xpress for Offshore Support Vessels service offers flexibility to meet the changing demands of the offshore sector.
Flexibility for demanding bandwidth changes
Fleet Xpress is powering the maritime data revolution. Taking maritime communications to the next level, it delivers the high data speeds enabled by Inmarsat’s Global Xpress Ka-band technology.
Guaranteed global bandwidth ensures that you can stay connected in even the harshest conditions, enhance operational efficiency and crew welfare, and more importantly, have the flexibility to upgrade and downgrade capacity.
The Fleet Xpress for Offshore Vessels (OSV) service recognises that connectivity needs on board OSVs change frequently and that swings in data usage are likely to be more pronounced than for conventional cargo ships, which is why it offers free upgrades and downgrades in service levels during the 36-month contract period.
Supported by a 1 metre antenna, the Fleet Xpress for OSV service delivers committed information rates of up to 3Mbps for uploads and 6Mbps for downloads with a standard antenna, climbing to 5Mbps and 10Mbps respectively with an enhanced antenna. When off-hire, a more economic 128kbps/128Kbps link may be sufficient to keep core operational data exchange ticking over.
The flexible service plan can meet OSVs’ changing on-hire and off-hire connectivity needs, allowing you to upgrade and downgrade to a narrower ‘standby’ link between projects for free, avoiding early termination costs. You can also suspend services during the period of the contract for up to 180 days. In addition, there are dedicated charterer plans that can be used when third parties come on-board and have the need for segregated bandwidth.
High speed connection
Customisable high-speed bandwidth plans are available, providing extensive coverage of major oil and gas areas with speeds of up to 10Mbps if used in conjunction with the enhanced terminal.
Ultimate reliability through a dual satellite constellation using Ka-band with unlimited L-band back-up, ensuring seamless global mobility. A dual antenna solution is available to minimise blockages.
Committed data rates backed-up by service level agreements ensure that the customer always gets what they pay for.
Increased preparedness for cyber threats at sea.
