KDDI to offer Fleet Xpress in Japan

Inmarsat and Japanese telecommunications company KDDI have signed a partner agreement to distribute Fleet Xpress to the Japanese maritime market, covering deep sea vessels, commercial fishing, oil and gas, and cruise lines.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}From July 2018, KDDI will offer an end-to-end Fleet Xpress package, including a range of airtime service options and choice of approved antennas.

The agreement comes after Inmarsat’s Global Xpress Ka-band satellite service was granted a licence in Japan by the Japanese Ministry of Information and Communications earlier this year.

“Inmarsat’s Fleet Xpress service delivers seamless and reliable global connectivity at high-speeds, with automatic and unlimited fail-over to FleetBroadband when needed,” said Akihiko Yamaguchi, general manager of visual communication service & MSAT business solution sales department at KDDI.

“With our Japanese customers looking to digitalise and use greater autonomy, this is what our customers need to operate their business efficiently, while also contributing to the health and welfare of their crews.”{/mprestriction}
