Fleet One was developed to cover less-critical applications, so it has been customised for fishing, merchant, and leisure vessels. It offers global coverage using five satellite networks with a focus on those coastal regions that are outside the reach of VHF and GSM networks. Its advantage is the low-cost and yet uncompromising connectivity, making it ideal as an entry-level satellite communications system.
It supports voice and IP data to up to 100 kbps, “505” Emergency line calls, Wi-Fi connectivity aboard, and flexible airtime pricing. The compact Fleet One antenna weighs only 2.5kg and is small enough to fit anywhere (27.5 x 22.1 cm).
Flexible connectivity for any vessel offered at the same price anywhere in the world. Fleet One Global covers the voice and data needs of a wide range of users, from fishing and regional seafarers to global merchant vessels.
Fleet One Global Coverage
Recreational sailors and small regional fishing boat operators can access tailored airtime pricing in key coastal regions to keep their costs down while enjoying reliable satellite communications. The service is aimed at occasional users looking to stay connected without having to worry about cellular coverage or network roaming charges.
Fleet One Coastal Coverage
Both Fleet One options have all you need to stay connected at sea – email and business-critical applications like weather reports and navigation charts, simultaneous voice and SMS texting, plus Inmarsat’s free ‘505’ safety service, which in an emergency direct a call straight through to a Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre (MRCC).
All delivered over the world’s most reliable commercial L-band satellite network using the Inmarsat-4s, with over 99.9% average network availability.
