Legacy services closure dates reminder

This is a reminder to partners that end of life date (30 December 2016) is now approaching for the following legacy services
  • Inmarsat B (Land and Maritime)
  • Aero Mini-M
  • Government Land GAN and Land Mini-M
  • Maritime Mini-M
Partners were reminded not to activate new customers for the above services on 30 September 2014.

What is 'EOL'?

'End of Life - EOL' is the time when the terminals associated with the retired services are deactivated on the network and the services are no longer available to customers.

Why is Inmarsat ending legacy services?

We are ending these services since they have been replaced by newer ones offering higher speeds, cost effective and flexible tariffs, and superior quality, accessed through smaller and lighter terminals.

When will these services 'EOL'?

EOL dates for the retired services are scheduled for:
