Aug 15, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Inmarsat, a provider of global mobile satellite communications services, has introduced new promotional initiatives for its BGAN Link service tailored to meet the needs of customers in Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa.
In a release, the Company noted details of its BGAN Link service:
Available immediately, BGAN Link meets the needs of organizations requiring high monthly volumes of broadband data for sustained periods of operation in remote sites.
BGAN Link is targeted at organizations around the world operating in the construction, oil and gas, mining, humanitarian aid and banking and finance sectors that require resilient and real-time IP-based broadband connectivity.
BGAN Link was designed around a multitude of real world scenarios that these industries are already experiencing, as well as to provide them with the communications infrastructure needed to expand.
The new service would enable banks to extend their services and set up remote branches with encrypted, IP connectivity. Humanitarian aid organizations can use BGAN Link for full office connectivity, even in the most remote or inhospitable sites. In the mining sector, BGAN Link can be used to send and receive high-volume, time-critical data for decision making on longer-term mining projects. Oil and gas companies can use BGAN Link as a primary communications solution for long-term exploration projects, or as back-up to primary communications in the production phase.
Inmarsat's new promotional initiatives for Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa are aimed at meeting the need in these regions for a predictably-priced service customers will want to rely on day-to-day, over an extended usage period.
BGAN Link is available for a fixed monthly price in a choice of four data packages. Customers requiring total cost control can select an option that cumulatively monitors daily usage to ensure monthly allowance is not exceeded.
Ronald Spithout, President of the Enterprise business unit at Inmarsat, said: "Our research tells us that there is a real demand in the market for a better alternative to fixed satellite services. BGAN Link fulfils this requirement perfectly. Additionally, with this new promotion, organizations in Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa can further benefit from Inmarsat's market-leading BGAN platform - long trusted by leading corporations around the globe.
"Our goal is to help BGAN be the highly flexible, capable and reliable communications network customers turn to every day, over an extended time period, not just in times of emergency or crisis," he continued.
