Intellian and Inmarsat launch FleetBroadband terminals

07 December 2021

Intellian says it’s pleased to announce that it has received type approval from Inmarsat for its new FB250 and Fleet One L-band terminals, “making it one of the first to market” with user terminals for operation on Inmarsat’s innovation catalyst L-band network, ELERA. The FB250, the company claims, is a multi-functional terminal, either acting as a stand-alone primary communications terminal or combining with Intellian’s GX60NX and GX100NX to create the Fleet Xpress (FX) solution. The Fleet One terminal, Intellian says, provides an easy-to-install, reliable voice and data solution, ideal for smaller fishing and leisure vessels.

Meanwhile, Intellian’s Fleet One terminal represents a lightweight, dependable and affordable solution for simultaneous voice and data connectivity of up to 150kbps on smaller vessels. The firm claims it’s “an ideal product for those operating beyond terrestrial coverage”, whether as seasonal users or simply not in need of the capabilities of higher-end satellite communications, the terminal guarantees peace of mind with secure, unbroken access at any time for safety alerts, navigational warnings, emails, internet-based messaging and voice calls.
