Inmarsat C I-4 MigratioN

Important action required for Inmarsat C users

As you may be aware, the Inmarsat-3 (I-3) constellation of satellites are reaching the end of their lifespan, which has made it necessary for Inmarsat to roll out the end of life process for several of their legacy services, and to migrate those that will continue onto Inmarsat-4 (I-4). One such service to be migrated is Inmarsat C. From end End Q1 2018, Inmarsat will migrate traffic from its Inmarsat C service from I-3 to I-4.

On 16 April 2018, at 10:00UTC, Inmarsat will migrate traffic from its Inmarsat C service I-3 to I-4, starting with the Atlantic Ocean Region West (AOR-W) first.

This migration applies to all users of Inmarsat C, but you are in safe hands with Marlink Group. Marlink is today responsible for almost half of the global traffic on Inmarsat C, which forms the basis of vital maritime safety and vessel tracking and positioning systems. This significant market share and Marlink's continual growth of the service is driven by long term knowledge, experience, solid partnerships and continuous development of infrastructure. This places Marlink Group in an ideal position to manage this mandatory process in the most positive way possible for our customers.
