SES has announced the launch of its global SES Maritime+ service that will deliver high-speed connectivity to vessels traversing oceans.
SES Maritime+ will enable maritime customers to have easy access to customisable bandwidth and coverage packages, ensuring satellite capacity is effectively utilised. Vessels traversing the oceans will be offered seamless roaming, leveraging SES’s global fleet of over 50 satellites, extensive ground infrastructure of over 20 teleports and more than 6,000 points of presence.
The managed connectivity service combines SES’s global network infrastructure and hybrid satellite capacity with the latest technology from VT iDirect, enabling SES customers to deliver a complete platform solution to maritime users on a worldwide basis. Commercial benefits include customised service level agreements and scalable throughput options, with standardised pricing regardless of region or season of operation.
“SES Maritime+ gives our global customers the nimbleness and agility to customise their capacity demands whenever needed, and the peace of mind to focus on delivering the best customer service experience to the vessel owners,” said Elias Zaccack, Head of Mobility Market Solutions Centre, at SES. “We will continue to further improve and develop the throughput capabilities of SES Maritime+ to ensure that vessels can travel around the world with seamless roaming.”
