Internet access to high seas

Connexion by BoeingSannounced an expansion of its service offering to include high speed satellite broadband capability for the maritime industry.

"We're actively engaged in discussions with several of the leading maritime operators, as well as potential distributors, and have received a tremendously positive response to our service and the speeds at which we can move data," said Connexion by Boeing President Scott Carson. "Operators of vessels around the world have the immediate need to stay connected, allowing a more informed and efficient operation, no matter where they are in the world - close to shore or in the shipping lanes across the Pacific and other oceanic regions."

The Connexion by Boeing maritime solution is expected to be approximately ten times faster than the most commonly deployed narrowband maritime communications systems available today. No price details were disclosed yet.

Vessel operators and passengers can use Connexion by Boeing to access the Internet and firewall-protected corporate intranets, send outgoing emails or open large attachments from incoming emails; get the news, weather or destination information; or view satellite television programming. The service will also enhance ship-to-shore communications for ship captains and crew - providing new opportunities for long-distance learning, improve crew morale, remote monitoring of ships' systems and cargo, improved maintenance, and to make better routing decisions.
