Event Details

Inmarsat would like to advise you of the forthcoming planned maintenances to the JX Network during next week.

As part of the continuous service improvement our engineers will perform a SAS failover in the Indian and Pacific Ocean Regions to optimize the routing configuration as well as adding more granularity per country to the existing Regulatory Areas.

In addition a number of beam in the Indian Ocean Region will not be available for a short time due to payload reconfiguration on board of the satellite. The terminals in these beams should automatically re-acquire into overlapping beams in the Indian West and Pacific Ocean regions.

During these activities, the JX terminals will drop out of the network as detailed below:
