EMC has signed an agreement with Mercy Ships to expand and upgrade the satellite communication systems and services it is providing to the hospital vessel operator.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Under the agreement, EMC will roll out its HD Connect global on-demand video service aboard the charity’s hospital ship Africa Mercy, providing broadcast-quality video anywhere in the world and allowing onboard volunteer staff to connect into weekly international team meetings.

EMC says it is also increasing the satellite bandwidth available to the ship, and providing access to live broadcasts from BBC and Fox News.

“The new agreement builds on our outstanding 15-year working relationship as the provider of mission-critical satellite connectivity and content to Mercy Ships,” said Brent Horwitz, president, cruise and ferry services, EMC.

“At EMC, we offer an unmatched value proposition for ships at sea through our advanced global mobility platform, patented technologies and customer support. We have 52 field service offices around the globe, staffed by EMC field engineers, ready to render prompt and efficient service to the Mercy Ships vessels wherever they travel.”{/mprestriction}
