The new contract is an extension of an existing contract, and expands MCP’s services on to two additional Stena Line vessels. These vessels include the former Scandlines vessels Sassnitz and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
The new contract will cover access to mobile communication services onboard, with MCP in the process of upgrading its GSM service to include higher bandwidth systems like 3G and LTE in the next few years.
“Our partnership with MCP goes back many years, as our first contract was signed in 2004,” said Niclas Ingeström, CIO of Stena Line.
“We have always worked closely together with MCP, testing new innovative solutions to ensure that we are able to offer our passengers the latest and best within mobile services.”
“It is clear that innovation and research is a top priority for MCP, always focusing on future growth and technologies. Having a partner like MCP ensures us that our passengers have the best communication services.”
