Silversea Cruises rolls out Telenor Maritime comms package

Silversea Cruises has agreed a deal with Telenor Maritime and SES to roll out a mobile ecosystem on board its fleet of eight vessels, including global VSAT services and mobile broadband backhaul, 3G and Wi-Fi with speeds up to 150 Mbps.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“We wanted to offer first class internet and mobile services to our guests and crew. After a long selection process, we chose Telenor and SES as the best provider that could bring us to this next level,” said Fabio Agostini, CIO of Silversea Cruises.

“A new internet solution was deployed across our fleet, and our guests are now able to use our services to stream video, be in touch with their family and friends using audio and conferencing apps as well as surf seamlessly using their social network accounts. We were surprised by the ability of our partners to deploy a fully functional solution in just one month, at the end of the year, across a fleet of eight vessels spread all over the world, some of them at very remote destinations.”

“The internet on board is amazingly fast and consistent throughout the fleet. We are replacing all antennas with brand new ones, entirely redundant, and this is just the beginning of a new generation of services that we will implement in the short to medium term.”{/mprestriction}
