[Via Satellite 09-22-2014] Inmarsat has selected SingTel to serve as a Value Added Reseller for Global Xpress (GX) with an emphasis on Asian and African markets. Singtel will focus primarily on customers in energy and media, among other verticals. The companies will also collaborate on a wholesale, managed Ka-band service supported by GX. The partnership is expected to bolster SingTel’s current Fixed Satellite Service (FSS) platforms.
“In many areas, the existing terrestrial telecommunications infrastructure is simply unable to support end-user corporate applications that require higher bandwidth levels. As a result, there is significant, untapped demand for a high-throughput satellite service like Global Xpress … SingTel’s terrestrial experience will ensure that a suite of integrated, carrier class wireline and wireless solutions will be provided to its global corporate customers,” said Ronald Spithout, president of Inmarsat Enterprise.
