Inexpensive Satellite Terminals for Store-and-Forward Messages

Used for distress and safety communications as well as fleet tracking, Inmarsat C and Mini C enable you to send & receive data messages of up to 32 kilobytes. Inmarsat C and Mini C are store-and-forward messaging services using inexpensive satellite terminals to send and receive data messages from fixed devices such as PCs and telex machines. They are ideally suited for messaging, fleet management, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), Homeland Security, maritime and aero safety solutions.

Marlink is today responsible for almost half of the global traffic on Inmarsat C, which forms the basis of vital maritime safety and vessel tracking and positioning systems. Since 2006, Marlink’s Inmarsat C traffic has grown to be 12 times larger. This significant and continual growth is driven by our long term knowledge, experience and solid partnerships on Inmarsat C, as well as the vital and continuous development of infrastructure to provide the highest Quality of Service (QoS), benefiting the safety of seafarers.
