SES has secured a connectivity contract for the upcoming Ritz-Carlton mini-fleet of luxury superyachts. The contract goes to SES Networks and covers 3 luxury superyachts under construction as the Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection. The first vessel will set sail in February 2020.

Delivered as an end-to-end managed network service, SES Networks’ Signature Maritime Solution combines the low latency of the O3b medium earth orbit (MEO) satellite constellation with the resiliency and reach of SES’s large fleet of geostationary (GEO) satellites for a highly reliable, high-performance guest broadband experience.

In addition to its high throughput capabilities and superior latency, the SES Networks says its cruise solution is easily scalable and able to respond quickly and dynamically to changes in demand. Guests voyaging with The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection will enjoy a truly immersive broadband experience at sea.

“SES Networks’ managed end-to-end communications solutions go beyond basic connectivity to deliver the best-performing broadband at sea, allowing our guests to stay connected wherever they are on the yacht,” said Benny Lago, Vice President of Information Technology at The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection.
