SpeedCast undertakes capacity and coverage upgrades to meet growing customer demand
Athens, June 8, 2016 – SpeedCast International Limited (ASX: SDA), a leading global satellite communications and network service provider, has implemented coordinated coverage and capacity enhancements to its global maritime network. Acknowledging both growing maritime customer demand and SpeedCast’s commitment for continuously augmenting its leading global maritime VSAT network, a series of enhancements have been implemented to reinforce SpeedCast’s leading position in the global maritime VSAT network.
SpeedCast is now operating a global VSAT network with more than 90 satellite beams consisting of global C-band, L-band, Ku-band and Ka-band, following the launch of our Fleet Xpress service, from more than 70 satellites. This unparalleled satellite constellation provides maritime customers with exceptional redundancy, network resilience and maximum coverage. This operator-agnostic network strategy enables SpeedCast to provide enhanced reliability, flexibility and service availability required for maritime communications today.
“We are currently operating and own a network of teleports, hubs and IP-connectivity links. This allows us to exert increased control over the network quality and thus maximize the customer experience. This can’t be easily achieved if you outsource your network management. Our ability to offer, and have direct control over, an unparalleled range of services and products will allow us to deliver a best-in-class maritime communications solution to the Greek and wider merchant marine market,” said Athina Vezyri, Vice President Maritime Sales and MSS Services at SpeedCast.
