Telenor Maritime has signed a multi-year agreement to provide high-speed broadband access to Silversea’s luxurious cruise ships via SES Networks’ Maritime+ solution.
Telenor Maritime will be using SES Networks’ fully-managed maritime solution to offer capacity of up to 150Mb/s to provide passengers on Silversea’s ultra-luxury cruise ships a true broadband experience at sea. Passengers onboard these eight ships will be able to stay connected through social network accounts, audio and video conferencing apps, and will also be able to stream video as they sail to travel destinations ranging from the tropical paradise of Brazil to the Antarctica.
Steve Collar, CEO at SES Networks, said, “We are very pleased and proud to serve Telenor Maritime in its mission to provide the best connectivity available to cruise line customers. This solution is an excellent example of how Maritime+ was designed to serve unique needs and requirements in specific markets within the maritime industry. SES Networks’ Maritime+ is a truly customisable and cost-effective platform that enables us to fulfil the ever-growing needs of global connectivity.”
