KVH Industries has announced the launch of satellite connectivity services that will allow vessels to use KVH connectivity while operating in Indian territorial waters.
“Today we see far fewer ships operating just with a single line of communication. For example, it’s now common practice to equip an onboard network with one or two back-up lines. In fact, VSAT packages now routinely include L-Band along with any Ka or Ku offer. The business is changing and now, more than ever, digital service providers need to keep up with the pace,” warned Nabil Ben Soussia, CEO Asia, Middle East & CIS at IEC Telecom Group, during a speech made at a recent offshore industry conference.
Inmarsat has expanded its agreement to deliver maritime broadband to Hapag-Lloyd, after the global transport group renewed its Fleet Xpress contract for a further five years and committed 33 more ships to the market’s leading very small aperture terminal (VSAT) service.
Satcom Global has added a new satellite to the Ku-band Aura VSAT network, expanding coverage and capacity across the North Pacific.
Marlink’s high-speed internet services for vessels plying the Northwest Passage and other remote destinations has delivered a major connectivity boost to its expedition cruise clients.
