X SAT selected by Inmarsat distribution partner Evosat to provide BGAN terminals for R-BGAN migration campaign

United Arab Emirates: Thursday, February 14 - 2008 @ 12:18

The campaign will target existing R-BGAN customers in Africa by providing an incentive to acquire BGAN terminal and services from Evosat.

The SABRE1 terminal is developed and produced by AddValue Technologies, Singapore-based engineering house and an accredited Inmarsat BGAN manufacturer. X SAT FZE is AddValue’s Master Distributor for the Middle East / Africa / CIS regions.

Evosat is the only African Inmarsat Distribution Partner.

Inmarsat has officially announced that R-BGAN services will be discontinued after 31 December 2008 and no new R-BGAN connections are possible after 31 March 2008.

When it was introduced in 2002, R-BGAN was a landmark in Inmarsat data services, offering continuous and secure connectivity over a 144kbps shared channel.

But, with the launch of BGAN, users can now benefit from a range of significant additional features such as data speeds up to 492 kbps; Streaming channels up to 256 kbps; simultaneous voice and broadband data connections.

And the launch of the third Inmarsat-4 satellite this year will enable the introduction of global coverage for BGAN.

It is estimated that tens of thousands of R-BGAN customers will require new BGAN terminals and subscriptions in the very near future with a large number of subscribers located in Africa.

The only Inmarsat distribution partner to be based in Africa, Evosat, is predicting a strong pick-up and sales during the campaign.

Mr Harry Tayler, MD of Evosat, “Evosat is delighted to be partnering with X SAT to bring this promotion to the market. Like Evosat, X SAT has an expansive sales strategy and is pushing hard into new markets. It’s a natural fit for both our companies to be working together in pursuit of new subscribers.”
X SAT General Manager, Mr. Gleb Larionov, said that X SAT is extremely proud of Evosat’s choice. The SABRE1 terminal is the BGAN terminal which gives the highest functionality / price ratio. We have no doubts that Evosat’s well-known dedication and focus on customer support will bring significant results during this campaign”.
