SatCom Global... New Packages Promo'd (SatCom)

[SatNews] Large data allowances are now being made to maritime customers...

SatCom Global has now made available FleetBroadband fixed-fee data pricing. The new offerings open maritime customers to the largest data allowances packages available through the Inmarsat network. SatCom Global will offer these packages with Horizon, the world’s most bandwidth-efficient VoIP platform that also offers a range of optimized data applications. The fixed-fee packages and Horizon will cater to maritime users with FleetBroadband 500 terminals to support high data volumes for Internet access. These plans are available for a monthly subscription per vessel with a minimum contract term of 36 months. Enabled by SmartPacket™ technology, Horizon offers VoIP from only 2kbps and a range of optimised data applications: compressed email, accelerated web browsing and instant messaging. It provides an end-to-end solution for maritime.

Horizon’s highly optimised VoIP client and its ability to provide and support firewall applications, optimize Internet traffic, block advertising, monitor and manage data traffic, white list management and implement anti-spam, anti-virus, anti-spyware tools make SatCom Global one of few Inmarsat Distribution Partners to be appointed to provide the new packages. Horizon offers considerable savings to maritime customers by using 80 percent less data overhead than most optimised VoIP services and being 500 times more efficient than common email applications. These benefits are not only available to the ship owners and operators, they extend to the crew. The high-volume data packages and Horizon give a whole new meaning to crew welfare. Horizon’s pre-paid voucher system allows crew to enjoy all the same cost-saving benefits and offers far more value than competitive solutions.
