Marlink and Intelsat have agreed to a multi-year renewal and expansion of their partnership to provide broadband services to maritime vessels around the world.

Under this extension, Marlink’s customers will benefit from greater onboard connectivity. The flexibility, reliability and reach provided by Intelsat’s global network of wide beam and high-throughput Intelsat EpicNG satellites provide unprecedented high-speed connectivity to maritime vessels, enabling the delivery of a diverse range of value-added services and applications such as asset tracking and improved cybersecurity that supports their current and future connectivity needs.

“Our partnership is a great example of how pairing Intelsat’s robust, global communications infrastructure with Marlink’s diverse portfolio of communications solutions results in the ultimate connectivity experience at sea,” said Samer Halawi, Intelsat’s Executive vice president, chief commercial officer. “With Intelsat’s global connectivity, Marlink is delivering the services that are most in demand by shipowners and operators today.  The coverage and flexibility provided by Intelsat’s space-based and terrestrial network allow Marlink to scale and meet their customers’ increasing demands and changing requirements.”

“The demand for dependable, high-quality VSAT connectivity in the maritime sector has increased significantly in recent years,” commented Erik Ceuppens, chief executive officer, Marlink Group.  “Together, Marlink and Intelsat have matched this escalation every step of the way, constantly working to drive improvements in service efficiency and resilience for our customer base.” {/mprestriction}
