MTN Communications has announced that Silversea Cruises is renewing and extending the companies' 9-year relationship, and is set to increase the breadth of communications services MTN will provide its eight-ship fleet.

MTN says that the companies' latest agreement will see an increase in the broadband connectivity on the ships, and further optimisation of the Wi-Fi network on each vessel to better support video streaming and other guest services. 

The expanded broadcast, data and voice services that will be introduced aim at catering to Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) passengers and crew.

"Silversea has been an MTN customer for nine years and is recognised as the world’s top ultra-luxury cruise line," said Jason Cohn, director of global IT infrastructure, Silversea.

"Our itineraries cover all corners of the globe, so it is critical to deliver reliable communications and content everywhere, at a level akin to a land-based resort." 

"Cruising these rarely-visited locales not only requires mission-critical connectivity, but a unique opportunity to show friends and family the highlights along such extraordinary journeys."

Brent Horwitz, senior vice president and general manager, cruise services, MTN, also commented that his company wanted Silversea passengers to have "the most luxurious cruise experience available."

"With customers anticipating the skyrocketing demand for land-like communications on passengers’ and crews’ own devices, MTN takes great pride in enabling new applications and myriad entertainment options, as well as business-critical tools, for the Silversea fleet," he said.
