CapRock Wins Maritime Contract

Monday, October 06, 2003
CapRock has added Subsea 7, a major operator of energy support vessels, to its customer list. The long-term multi-million dollar agreement with Subsea 7 provides for worldwide data and voice communications services on CapRock’s global network. The latest win is a milestone in CapRock’s multi-year plan to expand its presence beyond the Gulf of Mexico, following its customers around the world with turnkey communications. Under the terms of the agreement, CapRock will provide global interconnectivity via satellite for the Subsea 7 fleet of ships, which offer construction, diving, ROV/survey and pipelay services to customers who operate in harsh and remote marine environments all over the world. “Working from a ship for any length of time is considerably more efficient with reliable broadband communications to the outside world,” said Subsea 7 Global IT Manager Anders From. “We chose CapRock Communications based on their track record of reliability and their ability to demonstrate significant savings. They gave us a system with unparalleled quality, creating value for our customers and employees who can easily work from any vessel in the Subsea 7 fleet with communications tailored to their project needs.” CapRock will provide both dedicated and Bandwidth-on-Demand connectivity to enable flexible ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore communications for customers and crew aboard Subsea 7 ships. CapRock’s highly flexible network will allow voice and high-speed data connections to be provisioned on an as-needed basis from CapRock’s network operating center (NOC) in Scotland, providing dedicated lines to Subsea 7 and its customers. “Providing reliable communications service that meets the customer’s needs in a variety of remote and harsh environments around the globe is what we do best,” said CapRock President Errol Olivier. “The network we are providing to Subsea 7 improves its communications reliability, giving the company and its customers a competitive edge.” The CapRock network supports a wide range of applications, including corporate data access, e-mail, Internet, video conferencing, video streaming, fax, telephone and secure VPN tunneling.
