Great Lakes VSAT order for Radio Holland

  • Friday, 11 January 2008 | News

Radio Holland has been awarded a multi-year contract to supply communication network services to a consortium of maritime shipping companies who are members of the Canadian Shipowners Association (CSA) and the Lake Carriers? Association (LCA).

The CSA and LCA member companies operate 131 Canadian-flagged and American-flagged ships providing bulk carrier shipping services on the Great Lakes, coastal and Artic waters of Canada.

The communication network services to be supplied will include Seatel VSAT equipment, as well as iDirect, Linksys and Cisco solutions. Each solution will be integrated with existing on-board systems and upgraded when necessary.

Site surveys are already underway, and Radio Holland expects that installations will begin in January.

Jack Haynie, president of Radio Holland USA, noted: "All installations will be done in Canada and the US and will be coordinated from our projects and management dept in Houston. All North American Radio Holland branches will be involved in the project from the start."

Radio Holland will partner with ITC Global, a corporate network and communications company, to provide a network custom-built to the requirements of the vessels in their designated areas.
