Inmarsat GX

Global Xpress (GX) has been delivering seamless, high-speed broadband connectivity all around the world since December 2015.

The GX constellation is formed of three Ka-band, high-speed mobile broadband communications satellites, with a fourth scheduled to join the fleet in mid-2017. Each I-5 satellite is expected to have a commercial life of 15 years.

The I-5 satellites operate with a combination of fixed narrow spot beams that enable Inmarsat to deliver higher speeds through more compact terminals, plus steerable beams so additional capacity can be directed in real-time to where it’s needed.

Operating in the resilient Ka-band, while integrating seamlessly with Inmarsat proven L-band network, GX allows customers across aviation, maritime, enterprise and government sectors to have reliable and assured access to high-throughput communications.
