Inmarsat, one of the leading providers of global mobile satellite communications services, unveiled some innovations during GITEX Technology Week 2014. These innovations are “designed to deliver the most powerful, portable and flexible connectivity services on a global scale,” says the company in a press statement.
Inmarsat provided live demonstrations of its recently launched IsatHub service, which brings “assured, globally available 3G smart device connectivity to a new generation of users”.
The company also demonstrated the latest addition to its satellite phone portfolio: the IsatPhone 2. Specifically for government customers, Inmarsat presented the recently launched, civilian version of its L-TAC, beyond-line-of-sight (BLOS) service, providing military-grade connectivity to the civilian emergency services.
Additionally, Inmarsat presented the Global Xpress (GX), which it claims is the world’s first global, mobile high-speed broadband service. The first of three GX satellites entered commercial service in July 2014 and are now being deployed by customers as well.
