Royal Caribbean completes VSAT roll-out

Harris CapRock Communications has announced that it has completed the installation of satcom systems on board 33 vessels for Royal Caribbean Cruises. The solution combines Ku-band and C-band connectivity.

Harris was awarded a contract in April 2012 to provide VSAT for the Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises and Azamara Club Cruises brands.

In nine months, the company de-installed and installed more than 120 large antenna systems onboard the fleet, while equipping each ship with its SpaceTrack stabilised antenna systems.

Bill Martin, vice president and chief information officer of Royal Caribbean Cruises, said: “The new high-performing communication service deployed across our fleet enables innovative information technology solutions that improve both the crew and the guest experience while also improving our operational efficiencies.”

“Harris CapRock’s capability as a world-class communications systems integrator makes this possible through seamless service delivery backed by 24/7 monitoring to ensure communications are always on.”
