Press Release (ePRNews.com) - ALTON, England - Feb 28, 2017 - Paradigm’s unique flat panel Swarm45 terminal can now add full worldwide coverage on Global Xpress (GX) to its impressive list of features; a list that includes it being the only GX VSAT terminal that can be carried as airline hand luggage. GX is the only globally available seamless, high-speed broadband network delivered by a single operator. This means that the Swarm45’s fast setup and pointing can be quickly replicated from one location to the next without ever needing tocontact the service provider.
The lightweight Swarm45 can be setup and operational in under 5 minutes delivering impressively high data rates for its antenna size. It is designed around the PIM (Paradigm Interface Module) which has an integrated modem and innovative audio and visual pointing aids. The BGAN-like pointing process has been developed by Paradigm to ensure quick deployment by users with minimal training. It provides a straightforward method of acquiring any one of the Global Xpress satellites without the extra bulk of motors and controllers.
The Swarm45 has been swiftly adopted by the international military and government community for mobile and fast communication but is equally suited to the disaster recovery, NGO and broadcast sectors.
“It’s exciting to see the reaction of our customers when they realise how quickly and easily they can be on air with the Swarm45. Now with its full type approval on GX this can be replicated all over the world and with a terminal which can be carried as hand luggage when flying.” said Ulf Sandberg, Managing Director at Paradigm.
Peter Dingley, Vice President, Future Government Technologies, Inmarsat Global Government, said: “The pace that our partners are engaging and rolling out increasingly advanced Global Xpress capabilities is impressive. Products such as the Swarm45 demonstrate the flexibility of the GX system to encompass new technologies as they mature. A complete GX terminal, small enough to be hand-carried onboard commercial airlines aligns perfectly with our global service and is accessible via ‘one touch’ commissioning with no prior notice.”
