Satellite communications and technologies specialist Tototheo Maritime has passed the 1,000-ship mark in Fleet Xpress terminal installations, in a significant milestone for its collaboration with Inmarsat that reinforces the appeal of high-speed maritime broadband services.
Tototheo has worked closely with Inmarsat Maritime, a Viasat business, for over 30 years and has played a key role supporting commercial shipping’s uptake of the Fleet Xpress service since its launch in 2016. The 1,000 terminal installations have included container and general cargo ships, tankers, bulk carriers and very large crude carriers.
Despina Panayiotou Theodosiou, Co-Chief Executive Officer, Tototheo Maritime, said: “This is a remarkable achievement for Tototheo and a further expression of the success we have had in working in partnership with Inmarsat for over three decades. Having activated more than 1,000 Fleet Xpress terminals, we look forward to many more years of helping the maritime industry harness the power of data and digitalisation using Fleet Xpress.”
Inmarsat’s Fleet Xpress is the only global network combining Global Xpress Ka-band technology with resilient L-band back-up built in as standard, offering 99.9% uptime SLA on secure high-bandwidth connectivity. Its ability to provide guaranteed global bandwidth has been central to powering the maritime data revolution, allowing shipping companies to operate more intelligently and efficiently while enhancing safety, cyber security and crew welfare and supporting regulatory compliance.
