FrontM links with Fleet Connect

FrontM and Inmarsat have signed an agreement which will see FrontM to join the group of certified application providers (CAPs) offering a dedicated application for Inmarsat’s Fleet Connect connectivity service.

The deal will enable FrontM to use Fleet Connect over Fleet Xpress to deliver its maritime video streaming based collaboration and workflow automation applications to vessels, using dedicated bandwidth independent of the ship owners’ primary bandwidth.

FrontM’s Collaboration and Workflow Automation Platform is a cloud and edge (offline) system integrating video conferencing, VoIP and team messaging, optimised for satellite connectivity.

“We are proud to become an official Certified Application Provider for Inmarsat, which will help our customers to rapidly deploy and digitalise their business operations via a micro-suite of video conferencing and workflow applications across our platform,” said Lisa Moore, VP, Commercial Product Management at FrontM.

“By combining Inmarsat Fleet Connect and FrontM technology customers will have guaranteed access to the bandwidth they need to support their real time streaming services, enabling efficient collaboration between ship and shore teams over Inmarsat’s network.”
