Inmarsat launches open technology strategy

January 20, 2015

Open technology platforms have opened up new opportunities for developers and businesses alike in the technology industry.  As part of the development of the next generation of the global mobile satellite technology and applications, Inmarsat will harness this culture of innovation by opening up its platforms to developers to encourage new ideas that will change the way satellite communications are implemented on land, at sea and in the air.

The new open technology strategy will give the growing Developer Community the freedom to utilise Inmarsat technologies to develop innovative and bespoke applications.

Michele Franci, Chief Technology Officer, Inmarsat, said: “We recognise the constant need for people and things to be connected regardless of time or location. We have been providing global mobile connectivity for decades and want to leverage this position to facilitate the development of new applications, enhancing the way in which people interact with our technologies. Our new open technology approach, based on building blocks made easily available, will allow both new and existing partners to take advantage of our cutting edge technology, particularly Global Xpress, as a platform on which to build bespoke applications in new areas. This is the first IDC we are holding and I personally look forward to welcoming new developers into our already impressive community.”
