Globecomm Maritime Extends Ericsson Mobile Connectivity to Worldwide Fleet.
 

Globecomm Systems Inc., a global provider of communications solutions and services, announced that it has been selected by Ericsson as a subcontractor of the maritime GSM/VSAT managed operation for an Ericsson mobile communication network. The network will be implemented on up to 400 container vessels worldwide over the next two years, providing end-to-end 24/7 automated monitoring and real-time information control.
 

Globecomm will provide below-deck equipment and provide operation services, under a seven-year subcontract to Ericsson Denmark.  Globecomm will provide its VSAT service, including integration of shipboard terminals accessing Ku-band satellites as a part of Ericsson’s rollout, and will utilize Globecomm’s Hosted Wireless Services. The global VSAT platform will provide automatic roaming between Ku-band satellite beams on a global basis at a flat rate. The global system will access over 20 satellite beams operating through 13 teleports and including fiber backhaul to the Globecomm Data Center in New York. The Hosted Wireless Service will provide hosted BSC services, BTS/BSC monitoring and performance management by using Ericsson equipment.


The Globecomm Maritime solution offers Ku-band maritime service coverage which reaches the global shipping lanes and a worldwide managed network of fiber-linked teleports for transmission and management of customer traffic.
