Press Release
Tuesday, December 04, 2012

Globecomm Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: GCOM), a  communications solutions provider, has announced  that it has reached a maritime industry milestone, providing connectivity services to 3,500 ships globally.


Globecomm Maritime provides a wide array of connection platforms, from L-band to GSM and VSAT, as well as a suite of value-added software products, aligning its service provision to fast-changing customer needs.

 

This tremendous growth in the maritime market has seen Globecomm connect more than half of its customers over Inmarsat platforms, with the remainder divided between Iridium, VSAT, and GSM technology.


Dave Hershberg, Globecomm Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said: “The growth of our maritime services segment is a core strategy for Globecomm and will continue to be so in coming years. The key to our approach is being ‘agnostic’ about the airtime and letting our customers choose a service that is right for them, all of which can take advantage of a market-leading suite of value-added services.”


Malcom McMaster, President of Globecomm Maritime, said: “2012 has been an excellent year for Globecomm Maritime. We have remained focused on core technologies such as Inmarsat FleetBroadband, but have also expanded our range of services, with emphasis on extended Ku-band coverage and our combined Ku-band/L-band service se@FLEX. Reaching 1,800 active Inmarsat terminals demonstrates the success of continuing to support core maritime technology while at the same time providing cost-effective services that our customers have come to know and trust.”


Milestones for Globecomm Maritime include installing 300 Wi-Fi networks to enable managed internet access for ships’ crews, combining hybrid VSAT and GSM services, enabling remote access to onboard IT networks and providing firewall and anti-virus products that keep vessels safe and compliant.
