Maritime Broadband Inc. announced that DRYNET GmbH, Kiel, Germany, has been appointed as agent of the company’s C-Bird VSAT in Germany.

Mary Ellen Kramer, CEO of Maritime Broadband, is very confident that DRYNET Maritime Communication Solutions and Consulting has the expertise, experience and track record to effectively build awareness and sales of C-Bird in their market.

“DRYNET founder and managing partner, Holger Ritter, is one of the leading experts on the communication needs of commercial shipping,” said Mary Ellen Kramer, CEO of Maritime Broadband. “Mr. Ritter has distinguished himself as a leader in serving our market with years of valuable contributions to companies like IBM, Boeing, and most recently, MTN Satellite Communications.  We are indeed fortunate to partner with DRYNET to deliver ‘Real Ocean Broadband’ in Germany and throughout Europe.”  

Ritter echoes Kramer’s enthusiasm when explaining the strengths of Maritime Broadband’s C-Bird VSAT communications solution.

“Commercial shipping companies are challenged to find cost-efficient broadband for their vessels, this is mainly driven by their needs for crew Internet and IT Integration, as well as new applications supporting ECDIS, Performance Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance,” said Ritter. “From our perspective, Maritime Broadband’s C-Bird offers the best value and price/performance in satellite communications for commercial maritime users. It is easy to deploy, yet robust and powerful with global coverage, unlimited data and very attractive pricing. It delivers exactly what commercial shipping companies need today and completes DRYNET’s solution portfolio in a very attractive way.”
