Globecomm + MariConnect Fishing For Compliments...Partnership Delivers Hybrid M2M + VSAT To 50+ Fishing Fleets

[Satnews] Globecomm and MariConnect announced today that their long-term partnership has just achieved a benchmark in delivering a hybrid M2M and VSAT solution to over 50 shipping vessels.

The solution serves customers inclusive of major fishing fleets like Katla Seafood and Samherji of Iceland, Germany’s Deutsche Fischfang Union and Royal Greenland Pelagic.  Onboard services delivered include Internet, email, VOIP and video news and entertainment. Ships are provided with a secure and customized M2M portal which allows vessel operators to track production efficiencies such as the weight of fish versus fuel consumed. 

“New and increased exploration of the Norwegian, Greenland and Barents Seas is driving demand for reliable VSAT services,” said Höskuldur Darri Ellertsson of MariConnect.  “The reach and flexibility of Globecomm’s VSAT network is enabling us to extend all of our services into this important region.”

Malcom McMaster, Vice President of Globecomm’s Transport Vertical said, “For over five years, Globecomm and MariConnect have expanded our partnership and customer base to take full advantage of Globecomm’s global VSAT network and M2M analytics.”
