MTM Ship Management to double number of VSAT ships

MTM Ship Management (MTMSM), an operator of product and chemical tankers, bulk carriers and container ships, has extended its VSAT contract with NSSLGlobal to almost double the number of vessels using its IP@SEA service.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The new deal sees 21 existing vessels re-contracted for the next five years, with an additional 20 new vessels to also be equipped with VSAT over the next few months. MTMSM has been an NSSLGlobal customer for over 10 years, moving to VSAT in 2013.

The new VSAT package also includes NSSLGlobal’s Cruise Control services, including an e-mail system with built-in compression, web filtering and application control, as well as the recently launched Crew Unite module which creates an onboard portal where crew bandwidth can be managed by the use of ‘vouchers’ to access the internet.

“NSSLGlobal is a longstanding communications partner to MTMSM. Our positive experience with VSAT IP@SEA over the last three years made it an easy decision to extend our contract and double the number of vessels where the NSSLGlobal solution is deployed,” said Ajay Singh, senior manager IT, MTMSM.

“We’re also pleased to be able to roll out Cruise Control Unite across our fleet. The successful pilot trial we’ve done has shown the value we will get from better managing network access, both in terms of our crews’ experience and satisfaction, and the smooth running of the network.”{/mprestriction}
