Livewire supplies VSAT to RV Odyssey Explorer

Livewire Connections reports that it has supplied and installed a new Sea Tel 4010-91 VSAT system on the RV Odyssey Explorer.

The RV Odyssey Explorer is a specialist under water recovery vessel, and will be provided with a 2048/512 kbps Global IP airtime package by Livewire.

This package also includes the provision of local USA and UK telephone numbering to enable local calls between the head office and ship.

Due to the short turnaround time for the vessel, Livewire arranged for the equipment for the installation to be delivered directly to the vessel as soon as she arrived alongside in Portland.

The antenna was mounted and cabling run in by the ship’s crew whilst Livewire’s engineering team connected and commissioned the system and pre-assembled the below decks rack equipment and modem, enabling the ship to leave port on schedule to start her recovery operations.

“With the significance of the projects we work on, it was apparent that the RV Odyssey Explorer would require a high capacity/quality communications system,” said Odyssey project manager Aaron Rogerson.

“Livewire Connections provided a very competitive quote and had our system mobilised with extremely short notice. The Livewire support team has also been superb and addressed any issues promptly and in a most professional manner.”
