The system, neXat, opens the door for maritime connectivity services providers to new markets and the monetisation of payment and management services.
The commercial shipping industry will be able to connect to the neXat platform to access satellite capacity in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, the Black Sea, the coasts of Africa, and most parts of Asia. This means that connectivity providers to the maritime sector can operate and attract new customers in new geographical markets.
The neXat platform offers multi-beam services to vendor-agnostic maritime VSAT antennas ensuring round the clock connectivity and the highest service availability. This high-performance multi-beam service architecture is made available thanks to new interface protocols that ensure seamless handoff between satellites.
“Our neXat platform has already made waves in the broader satellite connectivity industry, disrupting a traditional and conservative landscape. With the continual expansion of our coverage areas and development of new services in our platform, it’s time for neXat to mark its territory in the mobility sector as a unique and emergent route to untapped markets and monetised services in the growing maritime connectivity market”, said SVP of business development Guillermo Bosch at SatADSL.
“Internet access is vital across today’s mobility markets, with customers expecting decent coverage no matter their location. Out at sea, there’s a market for connectivity for passenger welfare and on-board entertainment – neXat’s coverage and services enable maritime connectivity service providers to meet the needs of their customers, providing affordable and easily accessible internet services,” added Bosch.
