Global Seatrade to install se@FLEX

press release
Monday, November 14, 2011

Heavy-lift specialist is first customer to sign up for new flat-rate global coverage VSAT service package.
 

Globecomm Systems Inc., a global provider of communications solutions and services, announced today that Global Seatrade, a unit of the Hartman Marine Group, has awarded it a contract for unified maritime communications. Services will be provided by Mach6, a unit of Globecomm Maritime, using its global VSAT platform, which provides automatic roaming between Ku-band satellite beams on a global basis at a flat rate. The contract was awarded in October.


Global Seatrade provides transport for cargo, such as offshore wind turbines, that require specialized handling aboard the company’s heavy-lift vessels. Growing demand for its services led Global Seatrade to seek a unified communications platform to provide reliable broadband connectivity for its fleet.  Globecomm Maritime’s implementation for Global Seatrade includes Quality of Service (QOS) systems to prioritize mission-critical traffic, ensuring that vessel management, navigation and safety applications get priority over crew welfare communications. Broadband also supports VOIP, which provides significantly lower costs than legacy maritime voice solutions. 
 

Shipowners gain all of the tools needed to ensure global coverage, seamless service and full transparency of costs and service levels. This is a VSAT-based service, with a Committed Information Rate (CIR) guarantee that delivers high performance at a fixed cost. With seaFLEX, automatic switching technology maintains the VSAT link as vessels move between satellite beams. The same technology detects loss of VSAT availability and auto-switches service to L-band backup on demand, while at the same time engaging sophisticated QOS systems that compress and prioritize traffic to keep costs under control. Globecomm Maritime provides hardware, either purchased or leased from Globecomm, as well as software, systems installation, satellite connectivity and lifecycle support services.
