In December 2007 Radio Holland installed and commissioned the first Fleet Broadband terminal on MOV Van Kinsbergen. Radio Holland Netherlands was contacted by Stratos to arrange the installation of a Thrane & Thrane SAILOR-500 Fleet Broadband terminal on board this vessel of the Royal Netherlands Navy
. The installation is part of a field test into the new maritime broadband service.
The Royal Netherlands Navy was selected by the Inmarsat distribution partner Stratos as one of the first customers in a worldwide test of the new maritime broadband service. As Radio Holland Netherlands is a Thrane & Thrane agent in The Netherlands and a Stratos business partner, Stratos contacted Radio Holland to perform the installation and commissioning of the SAILOR-500 with the world’s first activated
simcard. Furthermore Radio Holland realized the integration with the AmosConnect e-mail system.
