Satcom Global adds bandwidth flexibility to VSAT package

Satcom Global has launched its new AuraNow maritime VSAT product, adding new flexibility options to allow users make continuous changes to their contracted bandwidth usage plans in response to alterations in their operations.

Vessel managers and owners will be able to make unlimited changes to their onboard connectivity, with the ability to upgrade, downgrade and even suspend their service on-demand via a dedicated customer portal.

AuraNow customers will not be penalised for lowering their service plan or suspending their service should they so wish, the company says. Bandwidth packages are charged via daily increment, so users can adjust their connectivity and spend in line with their day to day and emerging requirements.

“AuraNow is a true industry first, designed to support the real needs of the communications user, rather than to capitalise on locking customers into prohibitive lengthy contracts,” said Ian Robinson, CEO at Satcom Global.

“AuraNow is the only platform optimised to satisfy the connectivity required by the maritime community now, and long into the future. We urge all vessel managers and owners to explore the extensive benefits of AuraNow, before committing to yet another restrictive service plan.”

As well as the ability to make direct changes to vessel bandwidth packages, the system portal also provides access to a range of network statistics and metrics, live vessel tracking, Ku-band coverage beams, and invoicing and management information.
