This network will initially offer users access to three global satellites – NSS9, Intelsat 902 and SES 4 – and will see the service offered alongside NSSLGlobal’s existing Ku-band Cruise IP service.
The company’s Service Assurance package will be included with the service, which will feature seamless failover between C- and Ku-band services alongside an additional L-band backup.
The C-band offering uses the same network, modem and hubs as NSSLGlobal’s Ku-band service, providing the same web and e-mail control services, and is available immediately.
“Our customers, both at sea and on shore, increasingly depend upon their internet connection for a variety of mission-critical operational functions, as well as improving crew welfare by enabling them to keep in touch with home,” says Sally-Anne Ray, COO of NSSLGlobal.
“Our ability to provide L-, Ku- and C-band solutions offers our customers a level of choice few other providers are capable of.”
