Thrane & Thrane Signs Significant BGAN Development Agreement With Inmarsat
Inmarsat and Thrane & Thrane have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the development and delivery of key components to implement new services on the Inmarsat Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN). The MoU agreement has a total value to Thrane & Thrane of DKK 78 million and will be executed over the next 18-20 months. The Thrane & Thrane scope of supply will facilitate, among other things, implementation of three new BGAN services by Inmarsat:
- Low Data Rate (LDR) services – enabling new compact and robust terminals. Possible applications include development of low-bandwidth systems for Machine to Machine (M2M) communication, such as data collection and remote monitoring. There will also be application possibilities in both the maritime and the aeronautical market.
- High Data Rate (HDR) services – offering enhanced throughput compared to existing services, which could be used, for example, on new systems for live news broadcasting or helicopter surveillance.
- Data-based Maritime Safety services – providing the next step in introducing Global Maritime Distress Safety Services (GMDSS) to FleetBroadband users.
