BlueTide Communications Brings Ku-Band VSAT to the Aussies and More

A company that hails from Lafayette, Louisiana, BlueTide Communications (BlueTide), is providing Ku-band VSAT service to cover Australia extending north to Papua New Guinea and Indonesia. This provides additional service to broader maritime regions where global shipping and oil & gas companies operate. 

BlueTide’s VSAT plans work well with unlimited data and voice at a flat monthly fee with crews' personal use ever growing as well as the needs for systems monitoring and automation. In addition to standard VSAT communications, BlueTide provides a broad suite of application and IT services to ensure consistent connectivity, email, FTP, 24/7 support, a segmented crew network and flexible service plans, and other managed services.

Emil Regard BlueTide Communications Chief Executive Officer said, “As the shipping industry moves from L-band to VSAT to meet demand for onboard connectivity, you will continue to see BlueTide expanding its global footprint to provide maximum coverage to the maritime industry.” 

BlueTide's customers include companies in the Gulf of Mexico, Trinidad, Brazil, the North Sea, Africa, Europe, the Middle East and Southeast Asia with primary and back-up broadband satellite communications as well as value-added services including video surveillance, VPN, commercial-grade voice services, mapping and monitoring services.
