AST to Supply VSAT to 30 SEACOR Vessels

Posted by Michelle Howard

Satellite communication services and solutions provider the AST Group said it has recently won a contract with SEACOR Marine International to supply VSAT and failover satellite communications to 30 vessels.

The agreement sees AST supplying VSAT and back-up communications for SEACOR's North Sea and West African fleets providing bandwidth for VOIP and data services over multiple satellite networks enabling vessels to move freely from region to region with no disruption.

With SEACOR's fleet operating in the challenging OSV market, a flexible, affordable and reliable solution was required. As well as competitive pricing and 24/7 support SEACOR Marine were able to benefit from AST's unique INTEGRA network providing real time application identification and control, ensuring bandwidth is utilised efficiently on-board for both operational and crew welfare purposes in a secure manner.
