CapRock Launches New Broadband Maritime Service

Thursday, April 05, 2007
CapRock Communications on announced the launch of SeaAccess Communications, its new broadband maritime service providing always-on corporate networking and crew morale solutions to ships at sea. With SeaAccess, shipping companies can more efficiently operate their fleets, captains onboard vessels can leverage the corporate network and crew members can take advantage of services designed to help keep them connected.

SeaAccess represents the next step in CapRock's commitment to further serve the specific needs of the commercial maritime market. The launch of the service builds upon the announcement of CapRock's new Maritime Service division that opened last year.

SeaAccess extends business-class communications traditionally found at the corporate office to the remote waters of the commercial shipping industry. The service provides multi-line voice with toll quality connections, Web and e-mail access, Internet VPN capabilities and broadband data speeds starting at 64 Kbps. Global (C-band) solutions are available for vessels making transoceanic routes and regional (Ku-band) solutions serve vessels operating in specific waters.

Unlike many traditional communication solutions used by the commercial shipping market today, SeaAccess provides an always-on service at a fixed price. This eliminates the need for shipping companies to restrict communication usage based on the often high rates associated with metered services and enables them to budget predictable monthly costs. And, as the commercial shipping industry continues to face challenges with recruiting and retaining talented crews, shipping companies are always looking for advantages to enhance the quality of life onboard their fleets. SeaAccess provides services specifically for crew morale, including pre-paid calling plans, hosted e-mail services and wireless Internet connections. SeaAccess also enables shipping companies to benefit from their vessels virtually becoming "offices at sea." Source: Rigzone
