Viking Line opts for AecorLink high-speed broadband

Viking Line has agreed a communications contract with Swedish internet service provider AecorLink to improve the internet connectivity onboard its ferries.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} AecorLink together with its partner, Specto Remote who does the service and installations, have provided high-speed broadband thanks to a number of base stations along the routes, and a new proprietary configuration which effectively is tracking the base stations also over large distances.

Viking Line has already implemented the new high-speed internet technology on the cruise ferry Viking Grace. Viking Line will now integrate the rest of the fleet with the network and expand the infrastructure to include the full coverage between Sweden, Finland and Estonia.

“We see this project as part of our continuing commitment to improve our customer’s experience onboard Viking Line’s vessels. AecorLink’s established and proven network gave us the confidence to select them as our business partner in this area” said Kaj Sundström, network and communications manager for Viking Line.

“Viking Line is for us a high-profile client, with a renowned name in the maritime ferry industry, so it is of course a fantastic opportunity helping Viking Line becoming even more competitive. To participate and to deliver this network where we and everyone can see this vast demand, is extremely motivating. We know the invaluable difference it makes offering passengers access to high speed broadband with low latency,” said Ulf Harderup with AecorLink. {/mprestriction}
