Cobham SATCOM GX antennas approved by Japanese regulator

16 January 2018 (Copenhagen, Denmark) – Cobham SATCOM GX100 and GX60 terminals have been approved by TELEC, a telecommunications certification and testing body in Japan.


Cobham SATCOM has secured approval in Japan for the GX100 and GX60 terminals it has designed for Fleet Xpress, after radio equipment certification and testing body TELEC confirmed their compliance with standards laid down in Japan’s Telecommunication Business Act.

The certification allows the Cobham GX100 and GX60 terminals that enable Inmarsat’s revolutionary Fleet Xpress high-speed maritime broadband service to be used without any further need of verification of connectivity by the telecommunications carrier. It means that Fleet Xpress can be fully adopted by shipping companies in Japan without certified terminal hardware from Cobham SATCOM requiring separate testing.

“As owners reach to secure the benefits of data-driven operations, this validation will give them assurance that the improved connectivity, reduced opex and enhanced data speeds available through Fleet Xpress can be delivered to Cobham SATCOM’s maritime quality standards,” said Casper Jensen, Senior Vice President at Cobham SATCOM. “Terminals developed for reliability, ease of installation and integration with high speed data transmission that bring internet access at sea are the gateway to the enhanced vessel efficiency and crew welfare promised by Fleet Xpress.”
