Inmarsat, provider of global mobile satellite communications services, is pleased to announce that after extensive testing on Inmarsat-5 F1 from Cobham SATCOM’s facility in Denmark, the Cobham EXPLORER 7100GX (E7100GX) terminal is the first vehicle-mounted terminal to receive full type approval for use over the Inmarsat Global Xpress (GX) network.

The E7100GX is an auto-deploy drive-away system that can be easily integrated onto any land-based vehicle, trailer or skid mount. For the media sector in particular, having the ability to quickly mount an antenna on a vehicle is crucial in order to be ready to connect the moment they arrive on the scene. The E7100GX provides the added benefit of Inmarsat’s GX network, providing access to a much higher throughput and the ability to deliver HD broadcast quality output on a global scale.

When time is of the essence, the fully integrated iDirect Core Module and a user-friendly design enables users with little satellite experience to access GX services within minutes. In addition, with a large 1 meter aperture, the E7100GX is designed to deliver higher data rates and perform seamlessly with rigorous media applications such as: real-time video and audio streaming, video conferencing, and high-speed transfers of large data files.
