Hong Kong's Genting Selects Harris CapRock Comms Services For Star Cruises Fleet

Genting Corporate Services (HK) Limited has selected Harris CapRock Communications (HCC) to transform communication services onboard the Star Cruises’ fleet of six ships.

Star Cruises is one of the largest cruise lines in the world and is the leading such company in the Asia Pacific region.

Harris CapRock will use its technologies and equipment to boost bandwidth nearly 300 percent onboard Star Cruises’ Superstar Virgo, Superstar Gemini, Superstar Libra, Superstar Aquarius, Star Pisces and Taipan ships. The solution uses Harris CapRock’s uncontended Time Divisional Multiple Access (TDMA) network. Unlike traditional TDMA networks, the uncontended network ensures access to committed bandwidth levels at all times, providing an innovation over conventional TDMA networks.

Star Cruises recognizes and caters to the unique needs of guests from the Asia Pacific region. For example, internet users in China spend five to six more hours online per week than Americans and an average of almost 90 minutes per day on social networks.* With this enterprising project, Star Cruises will satisfy guests’ who desire premium connectivity and accompanying services.
