Vessel operators interested in exploring the use of Starlink satcom systems on their ships won’t be lacking in choice when selecting a provider, with Tototheo Maritime the latest company to confirm that they will add the connectivity service to their portfolio.

Tototheo says that it will commence deployment of Starlink kits with customers this month, having reached an agreement with SpaceX at the end of 2022.

The system will be available alongside the company’s other products, including Inmarsat Fleet Xpress, its TM Flex Ku-Band VSAT offering, Iridium L-band and LTE (3G/4G).

“Tototheo, is uniquely positioned to help its customers meet their efficiency, regulatory and operational needs,” said Socrates Theodosiou, co-CEO of Tototheo Maritime.

“Tototheo allows the integration and optimisation of a hybrid solution and data handling offered by utilising the SD-WAN and SD-LAN solutions, combined with TM SOC (Security Operation Centre), keeping customers’ infrastructure and operations secure 24/7.”

“This is a game changer and a complete solution for all customers who value reliability, speed, low latency, and security of their data links onboard their vessels or shore infrastructures.”

For those keeping count, the current confirmed list of service providers offering Starlink to the merchant maritime market since the system gained US FCC approval last summer already includes companies like Marlink, Navarino, Speedcast, Elcome International, IEC Telecom and Castor Marine. Vessel operators including MOL, NYK, Solstad Offshore, Hurtigruten, Acta Marine and Royal Caribbean Group have also already begun trials of the service.
