Maritime Satcom Forum: From Ocean Footprints to the Spotbeam Paradigm: Does the Customer Care?
Date of Event:
March 10th, 2014
13:30 - 14:45
Maritime Satcom Forum Presented by GVF
The key to communicating the detail of the multi-faceted satellite value proposition to the maritime sector is a comprehensive appreciation by network operators and service providers as to exactly which of the various maritime segments wants what particular services and where they want them, whilst remembering that the user is not necessarily interested in the minutiae of the satellite technologies to be used to effect the service solutions. Only then can dedicated and targeted communications solutions be successfully addressed to a marketplace with wide-ranging requirements. This session will explore the variability in the sea-going communications requirement which varies by type of vessel, type of owner/operating company, data volumes, and crew requirements (and passenger demands).
