Norwegian Cruise Line agrees satcom deal with EMC

EMC reports that it has entered a long-term strategic agreement with Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings to provide satellite internet and entertainment services to the passenger vessel operator, mixed with additional shore-based connectivity services.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The deal has built on the patents and experience acquired by EMC through its purchase of MTN in 2015, the company says.

“With the addition of new hardware, combined with the significant increase in satellite bandwidth, shoreside connectivity and EMC’s SpeedNet, we have moved beyond the decades-old problem of slow data speeds from satellite, to deliver a much more efficient and faster internet experience for our guests,” said Ross Henderson, vice president, onboard revenue, at Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings.

“Our guests can consume content, post to social media and stay in touch with family and friends on the ships’ network, just as they are used to on land.”

The deal will apply to all brands in Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings’ portfolio.

“This is a testament to our giant leaps forward in the cruise sector, thanks to our patented, purpose-built and differentiated products, and our unmatched worldwide support,” said Brent Horwitz, president of cruise and ferry services, EMC.{/mprestriction}
