Signalhorn + Digitaria International—The All Important On-Board Presence (SATCOM)

[SatNews] Digitaria International has selected Signalhorn to provide satellite communications services to passengers and crew aboard a fleet of 12 luxury vessels operated by a leading provider of shipboard travel in the Americas, Mediterranean and South African markets.
Signalhorn will provide passengers and crew with on-board Internet access and voice-over-Internet (VoIP) phone service with connectivity through its teleport in Leuk, Switzerland. The connectivity will also allow shipboard crews to use positioning applications for offshore safety.

Digitaria International, based in Luxembourg, delivers network services to its customer’s fleet, following the seasonal location of each of the dozen ships. The firm provides continuous service with roaming capabilities independent of each ship’s physical location in the Caribbean, Mediterranean and Southern Africa. Additional routes are planned for the near future. Under the contract, Signalhorn will provide the service through four different satellites for a term of three years, with options for extension.
