Beam Receives Japanese Approval for Inmarsat Product Range

Melbourne, Australia, September 28, 2012 -- Beam Communications Pty Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of World Reach Limited (ASX: WRR), announced today that its entire range of Inmarsat products have been approved for sale into the Japanese market.

Under the Japanese regulatory environment all equipment sold in Japan that emits Radio Frequency energy must be tested and granted Japanese Type Approval, commonly referred to as a “Giteki” or “Ninsho” certification. In addition, before sale, equipment must be certified for electrical safety and carry a “PSE” mark.

Beam has successfully completed the testing of all of its Inmarsat IsatDock Docking Stations for the IsatPhone Pro Satellite Handset along with the four Terra 400/800 and Oceana 400/800 terminals to support the Inmarsat FleetPhone and LinkPhone services.

The company is delighted to achieve certification across the complete range of Beam Inmarsat terminals and with the recent launch of the Inmarsat IsatPhone Pro and GSPS services in Japan this gives Beam license to sell and promote actively these products into the Japanese market.

"There is an ever increasing need for emergency communications in Japan, the approval of these Beam Inmarsat products will extend the use and coverage of the Inmarsat services across fixed site, mobile and maritime applications" said Mr Eiichi Yoda President & CEO of Beam’s partner JSAT MOBILE Communications Inc in Japan.

These approved terminals will be sold through strategic Inmarsat partners such as JSAT MOBILE Communications Inc., Japan Digital Corporation and SatCom global.

Beam is a strategic manufacturer of both Inmarsat and Iridium satellite docking stations for the Iridium 9555, Iridium Extreme and the Inmarsat IsatPhone Pro satellite telephones.
