Japan approves Beam range

Beam Communications has announced that its entire range of Inmarsat products has now been approved for sale in Japan.

Under the Japanese regulatory environment, all equipment sold in Japan that emits Radio Frequency energy must be tested and granted Japanese Type Approval, commonly referred to as a ‘Giteki’ or ‘Ninsho’ certification.

In addition, before sale, equipment must be certified for electrical safety and carry a ‘PSE’ mark.

Beam has completed the testing of all of its Inmarsat IsatDock Docking Stations for the IsatPhone Pro satellite handset, along with the four Terra 400/800 and Oceana 400/800 terminals supporting the Inmarsat FleetPhone and LinkPhone services.

With the recent launch of Inmarsat IsatPhone Pro and GSPS services in Japan, Beam will now have license to sell and promote these products into the Japanese market.

“There is an ever increasing need for emergency communications in Japan, the approval of these Beam Inmarsat products will extend the use and coverage of the Inmarsat services across fixed site, mobile and maritime applications,” said Eiichi Yoda, president and CEO of JSAT MOBILE Communications, Beam’s partner in Japan.

The terminals will also be sold through other Inmarsat partners such as Japan Digital Corporation and SatCom Global.
