Speedcast Nelco partnership brings VSAT coverage to Indian waters

Speedcast International has signed a partnership agreement with India’s VSAT service provider Nelco, a Tata Enterprise, to offer seamless global communications while at sea in Indian waters.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The partnership will enable vessels of either company will be able to connect to the Ku-band networks of both companies seamlessly in and out of Indian waters. Nelco will also extend to its customers Speedcast’s industry-leading products and services, which include cybersecurity, crew welfare, content solutions, and data and voice applications.

Previously, when vessels entered Indian territory they were required to shut down their VSAT connection. Under the new partnership agreement, customers of either company can roam into each other’s respective territories of coverage and maintain uninterrupted communications while at sea.

“In this partnership with Nelco we are able to open up the Indian market to drive new growth for both Speedcast and Nelco, as well as deliver the best possible customer experience,” said Speedcast CEO Pierre-Jean Beylier. “We are proud to be offering a unique proposition to thousands of vessels sailing in and out of Indian waters every year and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship between Speedcast and Nelco.”

“In this day and age, ship managers and owners want a broadband maritime service onboard their ships that is truly global and reliable,” said Nelco MD & CEO P J Nath. “In our endeavour to offer a seamless global service to our customers, we have partnered with Speedcast, the world’s largest and most robust network service provider. This partnership provides us the opportunity to increase our presence in the maritime industry and paves the way to provide even greater value to our customers with a complete communications service portfolio that includes hardware, applications and services.”

Under this agreement, Speedcast will integrate with the Nelco network to allow either parties’ customers to maintain connection while roaming between the different satellite coverage beams and teleports. With an integrated network, the service achieves global IP access for remote terminals and optimises the global connectivity experience for our customers. {/mprestriction}
