Thaicom adds Asia-Pac maritime satcom service

Satellite operator Thaicom has introduced a new maritime service platform called Nava, a broadband system for use in Asia-Pacific waters that will be complemented by a range of digital operational support applications.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“Especially at sea, satellite communications is the only way to connect crew and vessel. We launch Nava to address these limitations,” said Paiboon Panuwattanawong, chief executive officer of Thaicom.

“Nava will help create a unique user experience for our customers and will strengthen Thaicom as a leading satellite communications provider. With Nava, Thaicom is able to support the digital transformation at sea.”

Initially, the company says it will introduce three Nava services. Nava Ship Manager will offer asset and engine monitoring, fuel efficiency advice, and maintenance planning alongside the Nava Connect internet connectivity service. Nava Media will provide access to online entertainment, social media, and training services on board.

“These services are powered by our broadband satellite platform to deliver high-speed internet with wide area satellite coverage in Asia Pacific. Thaicom Nava is the result of bringing satellite technology to remote areas without access to communication networks,” said Ekachai Phakdurong, senior vice president, media and retail business, Thaicom.

“In the beginning, we plan to offer Nava service in high growth markets including Japan and Thailand due to our strong market position in the maritime sector there. In the future, we will introduce Nava in other countries as well. We look forward to cooperating with our business partners to develop our new maritime service platform further.”{/mprestriction}
