GlobalStar, Inmarsat to form partnership to cross-sell satellite services

Staff Writer |
Globalstar and Inmarsat announced their intention to form a new partnership to cross-sell their respective products and services, increasing their global reach.

The future partnership aims to provide additional service options for the growing and diverse needs of the companies’ expanding international customer bases.

Inmarsat and Globalstar are working towards a formal agreement, which will provide both companies with new and complementary capabilities.

Both organizations own and operate their own satellite constellations, with Globalstar using a new low-earth orbiting (LEO) type that launched in 2013, and Inmarsat using geostationary (GEO) satellites, including its Global Xpress high-speed mobile broadband constellation, which entered global commercial service at the end of 2015.

This partnership combines the best of both proven satellite technologies, making it a mutually beneficial alliance. â–
