NSSLGlobal expands VSAT coverage with Telesat

NSSLGlobal and Telesat have agreed a deal to expand their existing relationship, with NSSLGlobal agreeing a contract for a satellite transponder on Telesat’s Telstar 12 VANTAGE satellite to add to its VSAT IP@SEA, Cruise-IP and Broad-IP services for passenger and merchant vessels.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The new agreement adds to the capacity NSSLGlobal already utilises on Telesat’s Telstar 11N satellite at 37.5 degrees West, which NSSLGlobal uses to provide internet connectivity to the North Atlantic Ocean, the US and Africa.

The expanded coverage over Africa includes Eastern and sub-Saharan countries as well as improved coverage into the Indian Ocean.

“Ongoing investment in our VSAT network is key to our ability to execute our strategy of delivering the very best high performance solutions,” said Sally-Anne Ray, group CEO, NSSLGlobal.

“It’s this commitment to innovation and improving our service that has been the linchpin of our success for the last 47 years. With an increasing number of seafarers now reliant on NSSLGlobal for robust, high performance connectivity and exemplary service and support, utilising Telesat’s high throughput satellite gives us a competitive edge.”

“The additional capacity from Telstar 12 VANTAGE now gives our VSAT IP@SEA and Cruise-IP users operating in this beam even greater broadband speeds, which alongside our recent acquisition of Snap TV will allow crew access to the latest Hollywood movies, sports and news. By working with NSSLGlobal our customers can be assured that they are offering the very best to their crew as well as adhering to more than the letter of the MLC-2006 regulations for crew welfare.”{/mprestriction}
