The ‘Glossary’ comprises a highly comprehensive A to Z of the terminology used on a daily basis by the satellite communications industry in its dialogues with one of its key customer vertical markets”
Tthe MSF (Maritime SatCom Forum) has built a strong relationship with InterManager – the international association of ship managers –who has been a constant and forthright advocate of the ‘Glossary’.
The development of the ‘Glossary’ was driven by requests from the maritime customer marketplace for a detailed explanation and elaboration of the terminology commonly used by satellite communications solutions vendors, and this document will serve to improve the quality and effectiveness of discussions at the interface of the solutions seller and the solutions buyer.
The GVF, (Global Vsat Forum) in collaboration with InterManager and Futurenautics, will engage in a continuing programme to disseminate the ‘Glossary’ as a key resource to enhance the future dialogues between the satellite solutions community and the maritime solutions customer environment.
