Reliable two-way satellite communications are fundamental to successful maritime operations providing vessels with a robust communications link to shore. A captains challenge is to navigate the varying choices of network operators that offer different solutions at divers costs. With most vessels working to a budget, it is important that the appropriate solution is chosen enabling correct service delivery within the financial plan.
BeamSat offers tailored services for the maritime sector including dedicated and shared data-rate connectivity.
Exploratory ships such as seabed mapping vessels are unique in their communication requirements because they often need to send large amounts of data back to shore. Whilst most marine communication links require a large download to the vessel and a small upload from the vessel, exploratory ships often require the inverse: a large upload with a regular download.
These vessels often require tailored link designs that take into consideration the communications speeds desired, installed on-board VSAT hardware, the area of the exploration and the duration of the project.
