Nera F 5 5 Terminal Gets Inmarsat Type Approval

Inmarsat granted full type approval to the new Nera F55 maritime communication terminal. Tailored for small to medium-sized vessels, the product completes Nera's family of Inmarsat Fleet communication solutions.

"The terminal is authorized for use and is available in all markets where Inmarsat operates," said Terje Ask Henriksen, president of Nera SatCom.

"The F55 completes Nera's family of Inmarsat Fleet solutions, which makes "always on" connectivity available to vessels of all sizes, anywhere." The Nera F55 is designed to be a flexible maritime communication solution targeted at the wide range of small and medium-sized vessels, from the coastal fleet and supply ships to coastguard vessels and larger yachts. The F55 joins F77, intended for large ships, and F33, for yachts, fishing boats and other smaller vessels, to complete Nera's full range of Inmarsat Fleet communication solutions.

The Nera F55 features voice communication and high quality ISDN connections through a compact unit with low power consumption. It is designed as a plug-and-play solution, tailored to the communication needs of medium-sized vessels. Nera F55 employs the latest Inmarsat Fleet satellite platform with its unique Mobile Packet Data Service (MPDS) capabilities. With MPDS, the communication system is permanently online, allowing quick and easy downloads, while users pay only for data transmitted and received.
