Pooled Bandwidth for Ultimate Flexibility

To maximise your bandwidth efficiency for the entire fleet and enable full flexibility, Marlink offers the possibility to pool multi-band bandwidth into an open ‘Cloud of bandwidth’ on a global (multi-beam) or regional (single-beam) basis. With the maximum capacity grouped into one large pool, bandwidth can then be proportionately allocated from the ‘Cloud’ into the correct communication channels per vessel (crew, guest or operational) according to your business needs.

With the expertise of Marlink’s experienced satellite capacity planning team, we are able to offer this service cost-efficiently, and ensure sufficient capacity is available for the whole fleet, wherever and whenever the vessels are voyaging. With several hundred Megabits available in the Cloud, shipping companies can deliver a whole new online experience for guests or business.

  • Coverage
  • Marlink has established a robust, reliable teleport infrastructure and operates the most extensive VSAT network with several overlapping beams in most regions, meaning the vessel will rarely (if ever) be outside of coverage and in most regions is served by two or more satellite beams. This ensures coverage of all oceanic areas in the world, including the Arctic and Antarctic regions, allowing for seamless crossings.

    Furthermore, multicarrier solutions can be integrated over several different communication carriers using SMARTConnect (e.g. WiFi, 4G/LTE, VSAT, MSS). Based on your predefined parameters, SMARTConnect can seamlessly combine multiple communication carriers, including Iridium MSS for full polar coverage, to provide the best available link at all times.
