OneWeb has partnered with maritime industry players including Cobham and Intellian to bring increased bandwidth connectivity to the shipping industry.

Carole Plessy, Head of OneWeb’s Maritime Product Development, argues that reliable, flexible connectivity is required to harmonise the fragmented maritime supply chain and help the industry to attract investment and comply with tough new regulations.

Delivering Return on Investment is the ultimate goal for any sector looking to realise its digital ambitions, but the logistical and financial challenges of deploying consistent connectivity across entire fleets has been a significant stumbling block for the shipping industry. The sector has already invested substantially in digital products and services that have not always delivered, so it’s no great surprise that some are hesitant to invest further.

OneWeb has announced a partnership with Intellian to build user terminals designed specifically for remote enterprise networks, cellular backhaul expansion and remote connectivity needs.
