...inaugural Asia Pacific Aid and International Development Forum (AIDF) 2013, together with Inmarsat partner Singapore Telecommunications (SingTel) and applications development partner AnsuR Technologies (AnsuR). The world leading forum for the humanitarian aid, relief and development sector, AIDF is being held for the first time in the Asia-Pacific region from January 30th to 31st, at the IMPACT Convention Centre in Bangkok, Thailand.
At AIDF, Inmarsat is unveiling a new humanitarian aid package for the IsatPhone Link—Inmarsat’s fixed satellite phone service. Focusing on NGOs operating in a fixed location for an extended period of time, the IsatPhone Link package is a highly cost effective option. It includes a total of 3,000 minutes per month, shared between three terminals, to deliver one predictable, low monthly charge. This new offer from Inmarsat builds upon the package announced in 2012 for the IsatPhone Pro. Meanwhile, the BGAN Link broadband service offers NGOs working on longer-term field projects options of high-volume data packages for a fixed monthly fee.
IsatPhone Pro, IsatPhone Link and BGAN Link operate over Inmarsat’s award-winning I-4 network, offering around 99.9 percent satellite and ground network availability, giving assurance for voice and data connectivity anywhere in the world.
