Nera Introduces F33

Nera SatCom AS, together with Inmarsat, introduced the Nera F33 product concept to fill the gap between the existing Inmarsat Mini-M service/Nera WorldPhone and the global Inmarsat Fleet 77 service/Nera F77. The new Nera F33 is based on the Inmarsat Fleet F33 service concept, providing the light marine market with improved data communications from equipment suitable for the demands of today's commercial and leisure fleet. The launch of the service is due in early 2003. For vessels operating on deep-sea global routes, the new Nera F77, based on Inmarsat Fleet 77 services would be the preferred installation. Fleet F33 is designed to fill the gap between the two existing services.

The F33 terminal antenna is considerably smaller than the global Nera F77, making it suitable for smaller vessels and any light marine vessels with IPrequirements such as smaller yachts, fishing vessels and smaller coastal fleet.

Ottar Bjaastad. Nera Maritime Business Manager, said, "By launching Nera F33 we are responding directly to a market sector whose data requirements have outgrown the capabilities of Mini-M. but which may be exceeded by the Nera F77's comprehensive service offering.." Circle 8 on Reader Service Card
