Navarino had the pleasure of hosting several of our customers on a visit to the Inmarsat ground station at Nemea. These Global Xpress gateways ensure highest the levels of availability, and each GX satellite is served by two fully redundant ground stations to ensure the highest levels of network reliability.
A total of six GX satellite access stations act as gateways between the broadband traffic routed via the Inmarsat-5 (I-5) satellites and terrestrial fixed networks. The Nemea ground station along with the one in Fucino serve the I5 Indian Ocean Region (IOR) satellite. The I5 Atlantic Ocean Region (AOR) satellite is serviced by ground stations in Winnipeg and Minnesota, while the I 3 Pacific Ocean Region (POR) by ground stations in Warkworth and Auckland.
We were taken on a tour of the facility, and were given presentations by Inmarsat explaining how the Global Xpress system is served via these enormous antennas. We would like to thank the staff who made the trip so interesting and a big thank you to all our customers who joined us for the day!
