Global Xpress Managed Ka Service
Ubiquitous connectivity, guaranteed quality, and government-validated security and reliability – that’s the Global Xpress value proposition. Global Xpress is the only commercial Ka-band network delivering a worldwide service from a single operator. As a proven and trusted Ka source, Global Xpress complements U.S. government satellite communications to meet evolving requirements with a scalable solution.
Purposely built for mobility and on-demand flexibility, the Global Xpress system operates across 72 fixed beams on each satellite in the Inmarsat 5 constellation. The commercial Ka-band fixed beams enable consistent and reliable service between +/- 70 degrees latitude, delivering tens of megabits of throughput to end users. Global Xpress provides a dependable, continuous service – on land, at sea and in the air — with seamless connectivity between each spot beam. With our Committed Information Rates (CIR), users enjoy assured service quality and rapid availability for in-route and in-theater mission requirements.
Global Xpress is provided as an end-to-end managed service — delivered by BCSS. This unique, ‘SATCOM as a Service’ model offers globally-mobile connectivity the way you need it: simple-to-implement, affordable and operationally available — anywhere, anytime.
Boeing is an authorized Value Added Reseller for Global Xpress and provides rapidly reconfigurable options for our customers. For more information visit: http://www.inmarsat.com/global-xpress-us-government/.
High Capacity Payload | Commercial and Military Ka Service
BCSS offers high-capacity beams operating in the commercial and military Ka-band allow NATO and AUS/CAN/NZ/UK/US users to access wideband capacity as part of their own independent network. These steerable beams are designed to augment the military Ka-band capacity provided by the Wideband Global SATCOM system (WGS) to fulfill requirements and cost-effectively enhance the operational flexibility. On the ground, in the air or at sea, BCSS offers user-operated or fully automated secure beam commanding, including platform tracking, to enable our customers to steer their capacity anywhere in the world. Six steerable high capacity beams exist on each of the four I-5 satellites. Our engineering team has configured the system to provide greater than five gigabits per second of throughput and can design customized services for any application.
BCSS is able to establish communication networks in a variety of ways, including within the same beam, ‘reach-back’ through Satellite Access Stations (SAS) and as networks between spot beams. To support the needs of government users, Boeing has established its own collection of secure, Military-Ka enabled teleports designed with security and functionality in mind. A wide range of channel sizes (up to 740 MHz) are variable and can be engineered – along with backhaul architectures – to meet specific requirements.
Using our High Capacity Crossover service, military users are able to connect their same WGS-approved Military Ka terminals using any DoD-certified waveform, to the same destined Point of Presence, or through Inmarsat-provided Global Xpress secure gateways.
