Inmarsat (LSE:ISAT.L) has signed an agreement with World-Link Communications, Inc., appointing the innovative satellite services provider as a Partner for FleetBroadband, serving the maritime market globally. Alongside the agreement, World-Link plans to strengthen its infrastructure and integrate with the Inmarsat network through significant investment in building an Inmarsat Point-of-Presence (PoP). The plan will advance World-Link’s ability to deliver enhanced value-added services to its global maritime customer base.
“World-Link is committed to delivering solutions that bring value and strengthen clients’ ship-to-shore connectivity,” commented Asad Salameh, World-Link-Communications President. “Following the acquisition of BSM’s Telaccount Overseas in March 2015, and our agreement with Inmarsat, we are investing heavily to strengthen our infrastructure and investment with Inmarsat, as well as in our value added services. We want to ensure that World-Link customers benefit from industry leading technology and seamless connectivity at sea in a cost effective manner.”
