Miclyn Express Offshore migrates vessel networks to Marlink managed service

Miclyn Express Offshore (MEO Group) is to conduct a fleet-wide migration to a new managed IT network and integrated connectivity system with satcom service provider Marlink, following the completion of a successful trial.

Marlink will outfit 102 MEO Group vessels with its Sealink VSAT service as part of the deal. Using its XChange management platform, Marlink will deliver a managed service including network integration and file transfers between ship and shore.

The smart routing capabilities of the XChange platform will also be utilised to allow MEO Group vessels to send and receive data on the most appropriate channel and process data onboard at the edge of the network.

“As a global operator with a diverse fleet, we recognised the need to consolidate our communications with a provider with the capability to deliver connectivity and manage services wherever our vessels sail,” said Darren Ang, CEO of MEO Group.

“Marlink’s VSAT solution and XChange platform proved their worth at the first time of asking, giving us the confidence to embark on this roll-out to deliver enhanced crew communications and enable digitalised fleet operations.”
