SingTel confirmed as GX reseller

Inmarsat has signed Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SingTel) as the latest Value Added Reseller (VAR) for the maritime market for its Global Xpress (GX) Ka-band service.

The deal sees SingTel installed as the first telco in Asia to have been appointed as a reseller for GX, which is scheduled to enter service in 2014.

“By harnessing our telco and ICT capabilities in combination with GlobalXpress, we are now able to offer our maritime customers a fully integrated end-to-end solution,” said Andrew Lim, managing director of business group, SingTel Group Enterprise.

“The maritime industry is facing unprecedented challenges and opportunities created by rapidly changing technologies. Together, GlobalXpress and SingTel will be able to lead the change and revolutionise the future of maritime communication, which is an exciting prospect for our customers.”

Frank Coles, president of Inmarsat Maritime, described the deal as a natural result of decades of cooperation between the two companies.

“SingTel has an extensive knowledge of the Asian and Australian markets with a wide distribution network through which to deliver Global Xpress,” he said.

“SingTel is the preeminent communication solution provider in Asia and the ideal partner to introduce Asia’s growing maritime market to the potential of Global Xpress’s superior high bandwidth value.”
