Speedcast to increase RCCL bandwidth provision

Speedcast has extended its relationship with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines (RCCL) to increase the bandwidth available to RCCL’s 37 ships using Speedcast’s VSAT services.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“Speedcast has been an integral part of our long-standing efforts to implement  the latest connectivity solutions that allow us to provide enhanced communications for everyone, from our guests on board to our employees onshore,” said Guillermo Muniz, director, network and satellite engineering, Royal Caribbean.

“We are consistently raising the bar on ship innovation and increasing requirements, and Speedcast is right there with us, collaborating to make sure that we have the infrastructure and support to deliver the best experience.”

Royal Caribbean began using Speedcast systems in 2006, when the company installed RCCL’s first Ku-band VSAT antenna for use in the Brazil region. The Speedcast network now serves all 37 Royal Caribbean brand vessels, with multiple antennas installed on each ship to provide automatic failover between Ku-band and C-band.

“We have a true partnership approach to our relationship with Royal Caribbean,” said PJ Beylier, CEO, Speedcast.

“As one of the largest cruise line brands in the world and one of our largest customers, we are proud that they continue to trust our expertise in designing and deploying reliable solutions that connect their ships to shore and provide a premier on board guest experience.”

“Over the past 11 years we have seen tremendous growth in Royal Caribbean’s business, and we look forward to helping them continue to develop their brands as they introduce new ships and look for innovative ways to enhance guest and crew experiences.”{/mprestriction}
