The certification allows the Cobham GX100 and GX60 terminals that enable Inmarsat\’s revolutionary Fleet Xpress high-speed maritime broadband service to be used without any further need of verification of connectivity by the telecommunications carrier. It means that Fleet Xpress can be fully adopted by shipping companies in Japan without certified terminal hardware from Cobham SATCOM requiring separate testing.

\”As owners reach to secure the benefits of data-driven operations, this validation will give them assurance that the improved connectivity, reduced open and enhanced data speeds available through Fleet Xpress can be delivered to Cobham SATCOM’s maritime quality standards,” said Casper Jensen, Senior Vice President at Cobham SATCOM. “Terminals developed for reliability, ease of installation and integration with high-speed data transmission that brings internet access at sea are the gateway to the enhanced vessel efficiency and crew welfare promised by Fleet Xpress.\”
