Inmarsat Operator

Inmarsat - Broadband for a mobile planet

System

Inmarsat is a system based on a geostationary satellite constellation with global coverage excluding the Poles.

Established in 1979 to provide satellite communication and safety systems for ships, in 2005 Inmarsat was turned into a publicly traded company at the Stock Exchange of London.
The initial project, pioneering the field of satellite telecommunications, evolved along the decades following the launch of several generations of satellites.
The latter to be launched into orbit are the Inmarsat I-4 with 3G standard, used for the BGAN - Broadband Global Area Network, FleetBroadband and IsatPhone services.
