OneWeb partners with global maritime players

OneWeb has partnered with maritime industry players including Cobham and Intellian to bring increased bandwidth connectivity to the shipping industry.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The partnership will enable OneWeb to offer a portfolio of future-proof terminals with a variety of performance levels and sizes to meet the needs of many maritime markets including merchant shipping, offshore, passenger, leisure and commercial fishing. 

According to OneWeb, currently 75 per cent of people are unconnected or lacking consistent connectivity at sea. OneWeb’s new user terminals will be specially designed to provide a secure digital connectivity platform, delivering low latency, high-speed service.

These next-generation LEO user terminals will be developed based on field-proven stabilising antennas delivering ultimate application performance at sea exceeding. These new terminals will optimise installations from faster downloads to better video streaming and the use of cloud.

The antennas will simplify network configurations and provide superior value versus traditional maritime satellite equipment. OneWeb’s connectivity will enable new efficiencies for the maritime industry, providing critical coverage in the polar and Arctic regions, and lower the total cost of ownership.

“Our vision is fully customised maritime broadband services that will meet the needs of all ships and fleets, in any location. We are excited to launch OneWeb to the Maritime Industry alongside a high-quality ecosystem of partners,” said Nicolas Zibell, OneWeb chief commercial officer.{/mprestriction}
