Inmarsat-C traffic management
Inmarsat-C is a vital maritime distress and tracking service
that has become a mainstay of maritime safety and security as part
of the Global Maritime Distress Safety System.
With four fully redundant network co-ordination stations
installed in Singapore (Sentosa), Japan (Yamaguchi), Italy (Fucino)
and Norway (Eik), the TT-6600 Network Co--ordinating station
manages global Inmarsat-C traffic.
There are two remote operation stations installed at Inmarsat
headquarters in London, allowing Inmarsat to remotely monitor and
control the equipment.
The TT-6600 Network Co-ordinating station was developed as part
of Thrane & Thrane's close work with Inmarsat in the
development and implementation of the ground infrastructure for the
majority of its vital services, Inmarsat-C included.
