Commercial Maritime

Delivering Fast, Reliable Broadband Connectivity to Vessels at Sea

Providing seamless, reliable broadband connectivity that improves efficiency and profitability for the commercial maritime industry.

Enabling Digital Transformation in the Commercial Maritime Industry

As the commercial maritime industry embraces digitalisation, connectivity at sea has become a necessity. However, current marine communication can be as inflexible and uncertain as the sea itself.

Our Commercial Maritime offering helps the world's leading maritime service providers guide their customers through digital transformations. We provide bandwidth that can power the new generation of applications and services, helping streamline operations while reducing costs.


Make Maritime Digitalisation a Reality

Video: Enabling the Connected Vessel

Approx. 1.6 million seafarers are working on merchant ships worldwide, and they spent between 2 - 4 hours online per day

Crew communication can represent as much as 80% of the communication traffic onboard a merchant vessel

Hundred gigabits of data are consumed monthly on a VSAT vessel, with the volume doubling every 12-18 months
