In the maritime sector, the demands for broadband connectivity are exploding. Routes are continually evolving. Operational, regulatory, passenger and crew requirements are putting added pressure on ship operators to provide reliable service throughout a vessel’s entire journey. Applications that monitor ship performance and keep charts updated are dramatically increasing bandwidth consumption.
As technology and user requirements continue to drive the expectations for connectivity, how can you ensure you have access to the capacity required to keep pace with growing demand?
Intelsat’s robust maritime solutions have been designed to support the demands of your most complex mobility applications. You can increase your operational efficiencies as well as access a wide portfolio of products to provide constant connectivity on board ship. Whether you build and maintain your own networks and only require space capacity or are looking for a fully managed solution, Intelsat provides you with optimum solutions for coverage, throughput, service delivery and economics.
Access Bandwidth When and Where It Is Needed
At Intelsat, we believe in enabling connectivity anywhere in the world. Our powerful C- and Ku-band global mobility beams provide you with always-on broadband connectivity that rivals any land-based networks. Automatic beam switching (ABS) allows for seamless transfer from one satellite to another while maintaining connectivity with continuous provisioning of the service.
Designed as an overlay to the existing networks, the Intelsat EpicNG platform uses focused spot beams in key maritime routes to meet your high throughput and performance needs. Intelsat EpicNG’s open architecture and backward compatibility provides you with improved performance over your existing hardware or the ability to customize your technology based on the application. It is also forward compatible with the next generation of light-weight, low-profile phased arrays antennas that Intelsat is developing with its partners.
