Maritime Broadband Inc. has announced  that Nordic IT has been appointed as agent of the Company’s groundbreaking C-Bird VSAT in Germany.


Mary Ellen Kramer, CEO of Maritime Broadband, is very pleased to have Nordic IT Marine Communications (Germany) as an agent. “Working with Nordic IT offers Maritime Broadband the very best foothold in the important German marketplace. The company is extremely well respected in the shipping community in Germany. Nordic IT has over 800 vessels and shore-side users taking advantage of their optimized software and hardware solutions. We are excited to offer our premium global VSAT package to their clients.”


Nordic IT will use more than 10 years of knowledge in sales and support in the maritime industry to introduce the C-Bird  system to their existing and new client base. C-Bird  offers ship managers and owners a comprehensive solution with unlimited data and voice communications, providing a cost-effective and unique alternative to existing systems.


Heiko Hoefer, owner of Nordic IT Marine Communications said, “I believe that C-Bird  has the ability to change how communication is done in the maritime industry. Until now, C-Band has been unavailable to the commercial shipping market world, because of its size and weight, making it impossible to fit. C-Bird™ changes all that. It is easy to assemble and offers affordable service.”


“Ship managers and owners have shown great interest in the benefits that the C-Bird  antenna makes easy, such as a global reach, easy assembly, and affordable pricing including unlimited data at the contracted speed. Added to that, the crew can finally feel closer to the world by getting all the voice and unlimited data functions that they would get at home.”


“I am very excited about the prospects for the coming months and years as I believe that the C-Bird  will not only be of interest to my existing clients, but also open new client avenues as well.”


As an agent in Germany, Nordic IT Marine Communications will have the complete support of Maritime Broadband Inc. for all sales and services, offering a long term commitment from both parties involved.


Through Nordic IT’s introduction, a premier German management company in Hamburg will become the first of Nordic IT’s German clients to trial C-Bird  for their fleet, with installation scheduled to take place in October on the East Coast of the U.S.
