Minimise Data Usage and Prevent Unexpectedly high Bills

(Return to Satellite Products Summary Page) 

Users are responsible for all charges for data sent or received by their Inmarsat FleetBroadband (FBB) system. Due to the fact that Background IP is charged based on the volume of data sent and received over the satellite network it is extremely important to ensure that your system is optimized to avoid the transmission and receipt of unwanted data. Below are some basic tips to help correctly configure your system. Please refer to Inmarsat’s FleetBroadband Best Practices Manual. We are also able to configure a virtual firewall (Trench) to control protocol type and/or provide black/white list of websites etc (Application and Data Control). We highly recommend reviewing this information and that below before you start to use your system and are happy to provide all the advice and help you need to set things up for you.
