Connexion by Boeing To Offer Maritime Communications
Connexion by Boeing, a business unit of Boeing [NYSE: BA], plans to expand its high-speed satellite broadband service for commercial aviation use to the maritime industry.
The unit is in talks with several maritime operators, as well as potential distributors, about the expansion. Details about the system and service pricing will be announced closer to service launch.
The maritime service would leverage the existing satellite and ground-based network Connexion by Boeing has established and will bring the same capabilities for high-speed connectivity to the maritime industry. Existing networks will provide coverage in the North Atlantic and a solution for Pacific Ocean coverage will be announced in the very near future.
