Cobham SATCOM Global Xpress® terminals set to land this summer

Full portfolio of terminals for Inmarsat’s forthcoming high throughput global mobility services

EXPLORER 3075NAB 2014, Las Vegas - Cobham SATCOM, a key Global Xpress launch partner, announces at NAB 2014 that its eagerly anticipated range of EXPLORER terminals for the new Inmarsat Global Xpress network will be available to broadcasters this summer.


With Global Xpress coverage across Europe and Russia, and regions of Africa, Australia, China and India available from early summer 2014 prior to full global availability of the service in 2015, many broadcasters can soon leverage the power of Inmarsat's new high throughput services using industry-leading technology from Cobham SATCOM.


Global Xpress offers more bandwidth for broadcasters who can deliver high definition content from practically anywhere in the world. Cobham SATCOM's EXPLORER Global Xpress terminals are focused on mobility and reliability, to ensure reporters and events teams can make the most of the high bandwidth on Global Xpress.


Announced at the Satellite 2014 conference in March, Cobham SATCOM's new EXPLORER Global Xpress terminals join a diverse range of field-proven BGAN and Ku-/ Ka-band VSAT terminals.


The new EXPLORER 3075GX features a manual point pedestal whilst the EXPLORER 5075GX is an Auto-Deploy Fly-Away VSAT solution. Both are all new, highly robust designs, developed 100% in-house. They utilise a new 75cm 4-segment reflector and are the only Global Xpress terminals available that include integrated Wi-Fi.


The third new Global Xpress terminal from Cobham SATCOM, the Drive-Away EXPLORER 7100GX, is for vehicular use. Featuring a 100cm reflector, it is based on the established and field-proven EXPLORER 7100 VSAT terminal. A Global Xpress field upgrade kit for users of the standard EXPLORER 7100 will be made available.


Visit Cobham SATCOM on booth OE1100 at NAB 2014 to find out more about how its new Global Xpress terminals can support the broadcast media industry.
