Station711 (RRsat)... Bringing Multi-Voice Aboard (SATCOM)

[SatNews] Station711, the Mobile Satellite Services division of RRsat Global Communications Network Ltd (NASDAQ: RRST), announced...

...that Ofer Ship Holding has adopted the new FleetBroadband Multi-voice capability. The decision was made after a trial period, where Station711 and Inmarsat lead the technical aspects of the new service. The deployment on ZIM CONSTANZA comes just days after FleetBroadband's new multi-voice capability became commercially available. The ZIM CONSTANZA is a 4,250 TEU container vessel with a crew of 27 onboard. Station711, an Inmarsat distribution partner, added a Vocality PBX to work alongside the ship's installed JRC-500.

FleetBroadband Multi-voice is integrated into Inmarsat's core network, ensuring a high-quality voice service. Supporting up to nine simultaneous calls, it allows vessel owners and managers to separate crew communications from operational use, making it easier for crew to make and receive personal low-cost calls away from the bridge. FleetBroadband Multi-voice can be accessed on existing FleetBroadband equipment, and with the same per-minute tariff for both pre-paid and post-paid calls. It also supports the "505" emergency calling capability that connects a vessel immediately to a Maritime Rescue Centre.
