All aboard the Global Xpress, China
Beijing Marine Communication Navigation Company ( MCN), has signed new VAR ( Value Added Reseller) agreements with Inmarsat to bring Global Xpress, the world’s first globally available mobile broadband service, to China.
Inmarsat works with retail partners to provide mission critical communications services to Chinese multinational enterprises including: Air China, China COSCO, China Shipping Container Lines, and China National Petroleum Corporation.
The country is one of the largest markets for Inmarsat’s mobile satellite- based voice and broadband services, delivering double- digit growth in the last five years. The company is confident that there will be significant demand for Global Xpress too. And now, with VAR status, MCN will be able to reach further into the maritime, aviation, enterprise, and Chinese government sectors.
