Inmarsat launches free shore-to-ship voice calling for RCCs

Inmarsat has launched a free shore-to-ship priority voice calling for Rescue Co-ordination Centres (RCC) via the FleetBroadband and existing and evolved services, including Inmarsat B, Fleet F77/55/33 and Mini M.

The new service allows maritime RCC’s to place a priority voice call to any ship equipped with Inmarsat equipment, with the space segment of the call being free of charge.

To place a call the RCC dials a unique number before being asked to enter their account number (PIN), followed by the phone number of the Inmarsat maritime terminal they wish to contact. The telephone call will then be placed with distress priority.   All RCCs associated with Inmarsat services have been issued with PIN numbers.
