Inmarsat, in association with project consultants is planning to make life easier for software companies to develop applications that will run across Inmarsat networks. At the centre of the project is the Applications Programming Interface (API). This is essentially, a messaging model for data communications. When a message is sent across either a local or wide area network or modern link, it follows a standard messaging exchange protocol, allowing the recipient's computer to understand how the transmitted data is being packaged and addressed.
