MTN Awarded Celebrity Cruises Contract; Renews RCCL Agreement

Tuesday, August 01, 2000
Maritime Telecommunications Network (MTN), Inc. has signed of a renewed contract on June 5, 2000, with Royal Caribbean International (RCI). This new contract will include RCI's sister fleet Celebrity Cruises.

Under these agreements, MTN will provide a C-Band satellite communications network, allowing for shore-to-ship and ship-to-shore telephony, fax, data, and Internet transmission to 17 vessels and six new-builds. MTN will manage, support, and consult on this extensive global satellite network as well as supply and integrate NX Networks voice-over IP multi-plexers and Cisco routers.

These systems will act as a platform for the roll-out of RCI's wireless remote management project, based upon Computer Associates' Unicenter TNG software. This project will allow support staff to take control of the ship's computer desktops and servers from land via satellite link, as well as tap GPS (Global Positioning System) information for all of its global operations - thus enabling RCI to bring technical support to remote sites upon demand.
