Inmarsat Global Xpress (GX) will soon be the first globally available Ka-Band satellite network. Delivering seamless high speed broadband connectivity on land, sea and in the air over their new I5 constellation of satellites.
Inmarsat-5 satellites operate with a combination of fixed narrow spot beams that enable Inmarsat to deliver higher speed through more compact terminals, plus steerable beams so additional capacity can be directed in real-time to where it’s needed.
The first GX satellite (I-5 F1) launched in December 2013 and entered commercial service in July 2014, powering regional GX service for Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
The second Inmarsat-5 F2 launched on the 1st February 2015 and is currently making its way to its orbital position where it will undergo operational testing. I-5 F3 is on schedule to be launched later in the year completing the initial constellation and will deliver global connectivity.
We are the first company in the world to deploy a commercial GX terminal. Our valued knowledge in the industry has placed us in position to sell both Inmarsat GX airtime and hardware from all vendors for Land. We have also completed testing on our own Scytale products over Global Xpress with Arion to be completed by Q1 FY15.
Currently there are hardware options for both static and mobile which are both manual and auto acquiring. Data sheets can be provided on request.
Please contact us for further information on pricing of airtime and hardware.
The Global Xpress Link Emulator from Gatehouse provides you with the latest technology to demonstrate and test your GX solutions. It enables you to verify functionality at all times, in all places, in any scenario – without use of a terminal and costly airtime.
The GX Link Emulator (GLE) is a one box solution that replaces the terminal, satellite link and ground station. The GLE allows for solution testing and verification, on an emulated GX link, as if the user was connected to the real GX network.
Swarm45 is an extremely compact, rugged, lightweight and unobtrusive system providing high-throughput data rates, making it ideally suited to the government, defence, commercial and disaster recovery sectors.
It is operational on Global Xpress, Avanti and other high-throughput Ka-Band satellites and can also be configured to operate at Ku and X-Band frequencies.
