Singtel has announced that it has launched its Maritime VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminals) service which will enable the maritime community to use high-speed two-way IP broadband satellite communications services between ship and shore.
With the service, maritime companies can integrate their IT applications onboard ships with their offices at shore via IP. The service supports e-mail, web browsing, fax and VoIP via an IP broadband satellite transmission network. Coverage for the service will initially be available for the Asia Pacific region
