IntelsatOne® Flex for Maritime
The maritime sector – from shipping companies to the offshore segment to cruise ship operators – is undergoing a sea of change. Broadband demands are exploding. Routes are changing. Operational, regulatory and crew requirements are putting added pressure on ship operators to provide reliable service throughout a vessel’s entire journey. Applications that monitor ship performance and keep charts updated are dramatically increasing bandwidth consumption. With 75% of crew members bringing their own internet accessible devices aboard commercial ships, their use of the internet is exceeding the limits of the bandwidth that has typically been available.
How can you incorporate new high-throughput satellite technologies into your existing networks to meet your customer’s, ship operators, growing bandwidth demand? More importantly, how can you achieve this with constrained operational budgets?
And to complicate things further, your customer’s trade routes and bandwidth requirements are constantly evolving, which puts you into a vicious cycle of constantly buying new beams and reconfiguring your network to meet demand.
What if you could integrate HTS into your infrastructure and manage the network with a reduced CAPEX investment?
