Marlink reports that it has achieved what is thought to be a maritime VSAT bandwidth record with the provision of a temporary 300 Mbps bandwidth channel for the maiden voyage of MSC Cruises’ first next-generation mega-ship, MSC Meraviglia.
Marlink reports that it has extended the bandwidth and connectivity options available to both MSC Cruises and Stena Line, covering a total of more than 35 existing ships among the two operators as well as further newbuilds.
MSC Cruises has become the first cruise line in the world to begin to roll out the latest iDX 3.2 software and X7 modem from iDirect, with the aim of optimising its VSAT communications with higher throughput and improved functionality.
