The function has been restored and the satellite is available. Perhaps a restart of the BGAN Explorer 700/710 is nessesary.

06.07.2018 12:00
Inmarsat is currently experiencing an outage on the Alphasat spacecraft (EMEA) due to an attitude control issue. The cause of this problem has been identified and Inmarsat is currently proceeding with the specific recovery activities for a safe return to nominal operations that we estimate to complete within 12 hours.

Inmarsat is sorry for any inconvenience.

New recommended Upgrade for IsatPhone 2 Hardware

The new firmware for Inmarsat’s IsatPhone II satellite phone has been released and is available to download from the Support section of the Inmarsat website

Firmware version 01.04.01 supersedes the original version 01.00.00 that was released in March 2014 when IsatPhone II was launched. This is a recommended upgrade with a number of fixes and enhancements, including introduction of a new air interface encryption scheme to improve the security of communications between the phone and the GSPS ground network.

ISATPhonePro Firmware Update

We are pleased to inform you that a new IsatPhone Pro firmware version 5.6.1 has been released and is available for download from the Inmarsat website at:

For users of 5.3.0 firmware or higher this is a recommended upgrade, meaning that the features introduced by the firmware are important but not critical for the GSPS service, including the network and the IsatPhone Pro handset.

For users who have not yet upgraded to version 5.3.0 or higher, this upgrade to 5.6.1 is considered ‘mandatory’ to avoid the phone becoming non-operational.

For any questions you may have please contact us.
