Satcom Global and Intellian have signed a strategic partnership agreement covering the global supply and distribution of maritime satellite equipment.

Under the partnership, Satcom Global will have access to Intellian's full range of Ku-Band, Ka-Band, and Fleet Broadband hardware, supporting the delivery of its portfolio of VSAT and L-Band services to maritime customers across the globe.

Satcom Global will have access to Intellian's full range of maritime satellite antennas suitable for operation on Satcom services including VSAT, Inmarsat Global Xpress, Fleet Broadband, and television receive-only antenna systems. The company will also benefit from Intellian's three strategic service and logistics hubs located in South Korea for the Asia-Pacific region; Rotterdam for customers in Europe; and Irvine to provide logistics and service support in the Americas.

Dedicated stocks will be held in these three Intellian facilities, guaranteeing Satcom Global clients quick access to hardware as necessary and enabling the company to provide a fast and seamless global distribution service to meet deadlines and installation requirements.

The Intellian v100 and v100GX antennas will enable Satcom Global to deliver an always-on high-bandwidth VSAT service to customers. Enabling a range of bandwidth-hungry services, vessels will be able to operate as a true office at sea' whilst also keeping crews happy with sustained access to life online and onshore. Guaranteed data speeds also allow the use of applications such as video conferencing, e-learning and training as well telemedicine.

"Intellian is exactly the kind of committed partner we want on our team to help penetrate deeper into the maritime market with a truly world-class managed connectivity solution. Our new partner is a forward-thinking company whose investments in R&D continue to deliver outstanding performance, reliability, and innovation. With a global presence, robust training, and support capabilities, and an industry leading warranty, we are confident of providing a timely and highly efficient service to our customers from a hardware perspective."
