Solution
This article describes what is needed to upgrade a Inmarsat Fleet 77 terminal to a Inmarsat Fleet Broadband system. 

 

Nera / Furuno F77: Software Upgrade only required

 

Thrane / Sailor: Software and Hardware upgrade required

 

JRC: Software and Hardware upgrade required

 

 

 

New ISN must be requested from Inmarsat before upgrading

 

Recommended ISDN TAs:

Eicon Diva Pro PC Card PCMCIA

 

Com One 1 USB Light Ride

 

 

 

NERA F77

 

Able to reuse all the cabling

 

installation and above deck

 

antenna unit

 

The upgrade kit will primarily

 

include a new type of below

 

deck unit as well as an upgrade

 

to the transceiver unit in the

 

above deck system

 

 

 

 

 

Thrana & Thrane / Sailor

 

By swapping the Below Deck

 

Unit the system can run all

 

services specified by Inmarsat

 

as being Class 8.

 

The above deck unit already

 

installed can be reused in the

 

Fleetbroadband/BGAN

 

network.

 

 

 

JUE (F77) to Class 8 BGAN Maritime (FBB)

 

The Below-decks unit will need

 

to be replaced completely; all

 

peripheral devices will remain.

 

Some RF units in the Radom

 

will need to be replaced, but the

 

antenna and

 

stabilisation/pointing system

 

will remain.

 

 

 

* The upgrade of Fleet F77 to FBB Class 8 eliminates the

 

global voice Distress capability as this service is not

supported by the Fleetbroadband networ
