Marlink and Intelsat have announced that the companies have agreed to a multi-year renewal and expansion of their partnership to provide broadband services to maritime vessels around the world. 

The multi-year agreement will deliver additional throughput to vessels via multiple layers of space-based coverage, ensuring that ship owners and operators have the flexibility and access to reliable, high-quality, always-on connectivity.

Initiated in 2014, the partnership between Marlink and Intelsat enabled Marlink to enhance its extensive portfolio of maritime VSAT services.  It also unlocked applications that improve operational efficiencies for ship owners and operators across all maritime segments, including the oil/offshore, transportation, cruise and ferry, and fisheries sectors.

Under this extension, Marlink’s customers will see even greater benefits onboard. The flexibility, reliability and reach provided by Intelsat’s global network of wide beam and high-throughput Intelsat EpicNG satellites provide unprecedented high-speed connectivity to maritime vessels, enabling the delivery of a diverse range of value-added services and applications such as asset tracking and improved cybersecurity that supports their current and future connectivity needs.
