Intellian has signed a strategic partnership with Japan Radio Company (JRC) in maritime satellite communication antenna technology.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} As part of the agreement, Intellian and JRC will start from the mutual provision of satellite terminals and technologies, considering joint development in the future. The partnership is a result of the demand from ship operators to share ship-to-shore navigation information, which is aimed at increasing efficiency and productivity in ship operations. Highly reliable and high-speed connection between ships-to-shore is critical for this.

Intellian will provide a full range of proven, quality antennas to JRC. This will strengthen JRC’s satellite communications business in the maritime business with the new partner, Intellian, having a large selection of maritime satellite antenna terminals.

“The maritime industry is moving toward the era of smart shipping, and ship operators are looking for more insight into their operations to increase efficiency, productivity and to comply with regulations,” said Takayuki Komiya, executive officer of marine systems division at JRC.

“In order to contribute to this demand, JRC provides a service to share navigation information between ships and land through JRC equipment installed on approximately one third of the world’s commercial vessels. What’s critical is a reliable, high-speed connection between the ships and land, and thus JRC believes firmly that this new partnership will lead to further improvement of customer satisfaction.”

Eric Sung, CEO of Intellian, said: “Intellian is the global leader in mobile satellite communication antenna systems, and a logical choice to partner with JRC. Our cooperation will broaden the market for both brands, allowing us to serve our combined customer bases across a wider range of applications. By sharing our expertise and experience, Intellian and JRC will provide a range of products and services which are second to none.” {/mprestriction}
