SpeedCast is appointed an Inmarsat Global Xpress Value Added Reseller for Enterprise Customers 



18 March 2015:


Inmarsat announced the appointment of SpeedCast, a leading global network and satellite communications service provider, to its Enterprise Global Xpress (GX) Value Added Resellers (VARs) program.  SpeedCast is the first GX VAR for Inmarsat Enterprise to come from the VSAT industry.  Recognising the value in the GX platform and Ka-band network, which offers both fixed and mobile satellite services on a global basis, GX will bring a unique offering to SpeedCast’s customers in media, mining, oil and gas and NGOs, as well as corporate multinationals.   

Rash Jhanjee, Head of GX Business Development and Strategy, Inmarsat Enterprise said, “We are extremely excited about this signing with SpeedCast, who have a wealth of knowledge and expertise in deploying satellite communications solutions across a broad range of Enterprise customers. This appointment further endorses Inmarsat’s entry into the VSAT market and reflects how our global Ka-band network is attracting leading operators from the VSAT industry.”

Under this agreement, SpeedCast will now be able to expand their existing satellite service portfolio with the addition of GX, with its unique platform and capabilities, to bring new service options to their customers.  With the first GX satellite commercially available, they look to immediately expand their product offerings for their customer base in geographies such as Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia.

“We are delighted to be appointed as a Global Xpress Value Added Reseller with the Enterprise business unit, which further solidifies our strong partnership with Inmarsat” said Andrew Burdall, VP of Strategic Business Development of SpeedCast.  “Global Xpress is a perfect fit for media organisations that need to stream live video, NGOs supporting critical missions in remote areas, as well as energy companies that require higher bandwidth for business applications from their remote sites. Inmarsat’s portfolio of satcom solutions, including the Global Xpress service, is a valuable addition to our comprehensive suite of satellite solutions.”
