Datasat and SES partner on ferry fleet VSAT deal

Datasat, a provider of gateway internet services via satellite, has partnered with SES Networks to provide connectivity to an unnamed ferry fleet in the Mediterranean Sea, servicing passengers and cargo in multiple destinations in Greece, Italy, Spain and Morocco.

Datasat will leverage SES Networks’ Signature Maritime Solutions and ground infrastructure to deliver the service, the companies said.

“The era of the connected ship is upon us, and it’s a change that will revolutionise vessel communications and operations,” said David Franeau, Managing Director at Datasat.

“SES Networks’ innovative, high-throughput connectivity and fully managed end-to-end services is our gateway to more intelligent ships, smarter fleet management, and an unparalleled guest satisfaction.”

“We are constantly looking for ways to optimise the service provided to ferry passengers and we’re delighted with the quality of service enabled by SES Networks, which provides a premium user experience.”
