Inmarsat has announced that it has signed four new Value Added Reseller (VAR) agreements with Beijing Marine Communication Navigation Company (MCN), paving the way for Global Xpress in China.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}MCN, owned by China Transport Telecommunication & Information Centre (CTTIC), has been working with Inmarsat since 1979. The agreement sees it now become a Global Xpress Value Added Reseller (GX VAR) in China, covering maritime, aviation, enterprise and Chinese government markets.

“From emergency first responders to those delivering remote education (e-learning) services, Global Xpress will bring the benefits of seamless, superfast connectivity to every region in China, while ensuring that Chinese companies – from airlines to shipping fleets – can enjoy the same high capacity service wherever they are in the world,” said Rupert Pearce, CEO of Inmarsat.

“MCN has been a partner for Inmarsat in China for many decades and we are delighted that this relationship is extending to our latest and most powerful satellite communication service; Global Xpress.”

Inmarsat works exclusively through retail partners in China, providing communication services to multinationals such as Air China, China COSCO and China Shipping Container Lines.  

“China is one of the biggest markets for Inmarsat’s mobile satellite-based voice and broadband services, delivering double digit growth in the last five years,” continued Mr Pearce.  

“We are confident that there will be significant demand for Global Xpress.”{/mprestriction}
