Marlink extends global Ku-band coverage to 60cm antennas

Marlink reports that its Sealink VSAT service is now available with global coverage through 60 cm Ku-band antennas, as opposed to the 1m antennas previously required.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Global coverage on 60 cm antennas can be provided for guaranteed throughput of up to 512 Kbps, the company says.

“Marlink’s engineers have developed an innovative approach together with our satellite provider to offer the Sealink VSAT service via 60 cm antennas, so we are able to deliver highly reliable connectivity on a single global service,” said Tore Morten Olsen, president maritime, Marlink.

“The world-wide coverage on compact, lighter antennas is a significant breakthrough in the market as it essentially introduces a new user-base, including yachts and motorboats, fishing vessels, smaller ships and workboats to the world of maritime VSAT and the operational and financial benefits that fixed cost, high throughput communication services enable.”{/mprestriction}
