When you’ve invested in a luxurious cruise onboard a high-end ship the services offered should all be top of the line. That is now true with Silversea’s luxurious cruise ships and the high-speed broadband access they are offering their passengers as a result of a multi-year agreement with Telenor Maritime via SES Networks’ SES (Euronext Paris:SESG) (LuxX:SESG) Maritime+ solution.
Telenor Maritime will be using SES Networks’ fully-managed maritime solution to offer capacity of up to 150Mb/s that provides passengers on Silversea’s 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 the most exotic travel destinations ranging from the tropics of Brazil to the wilderness of Antarctica. SES Networks is a newly-created SES business unit focused on delivering differentiated satellite-enabled solutions for data-centric customers.
Designed especially for service providers, the SES Networks Maritime+ solution combines SES’s product innovation with global ground and space infrastructure to deliver consistent connectivity as vessels sail across the region, and enables upgraded coverage and service as needed. Read more >
