This is a reminder to partners that end of life is now approaching for Enterprise Land GAN and Enterprise Land Mini-M on 30 June 2015. Partners were reminded not to activate new customers for both these services on 30 September 2014.

Inmarsat have decided to keep GAN and Mini-M services open for government customers with specific Crypto and other operational requirements, using GAN and Mini-M.

What is 'EOL'?
'End of Life - EOL' is the time when the terminals associated with the retired services are deactivated on the network and the services are no longer available to customers.

Why is Inmarsat ending legacy services?
