SpeedCast International has announced that it has partnered with DH-INTERCOM, a subsidiary of Eutelsat Communications, which is based in Germany and provides communications and IT services to the maritime industry, to offer global Ku-band satellite broadband services to a fleet of 50 vessels sailing worldwide.

DHI will leverage SpeedCast’s global satellite infrastructure to provide high speed, high-throughput connectivity to its customer, who wish to offer crew access to Internet services, as well as gain greater efficiency on the vessels via remote monitoring and operation applications.

“Our customer is looking for network connections with higher speed to run more applications and provide better data services to their crew on 50 vessels. SpeedCast’s outstanding global network will deliver the performance and reliability we need to support our customer,” said David Bunting, Director of Operations at WINS.

Piers Cunningham, Vice President, Maritime Services, SpeedCast commented, “We see an increasing demand for high speed, high-throughput connectivity from the maritime industry. Ship owners need to run more bandwidth-demanding applications on their vessels to improve operational efficiency and provide better crew welfare. We are well poised to answer this growing connectivity demand with our extensive, highly resilient, global Ku-band network and provide best-in class services wherever our customers operate.”
