“Not only does SpeedCast achieve this, but they are also able to deliver an advanced, globally accessible communications solution that is reliable and has a proven operational deployment record.”

SpeedCast’s solution will initially deliver burst rates of 2048 kbps/512 kbps, with committed information rates (CIR) of 512 kbps/256 kbps, to each vessel, with scope to upgrade as necessary depending on client requirements.

SpeedCast says it will deliver principle support for GMS from its Dubai, UAE sales and support centre, backed by its global support network.

“The Middle East is a critically important market for the offshore oil sector,” said Piers Cunningham, VP of maritime services, SpeedCast.

“SpeedCast has continued to invest in its network and infrastructure to service the demanding requirements of its offshore customers. Likewise, SpeedCast has continued to invest in products and services, for both FSS and MSS, that allow us to serve as a one-stop-shop for our maritime and energy customers’ critical communications.”{/mprestriction}
