Telemar, Vizada Launch SeaMore Maritime Satcom Service
Vizada has partnered with shipping and land-based satcom provider Telemar to launch SeaMore, a new joint communications solution for the maritime community.
SeaMore was designed as a full-service communications solution with access to onboard communications that functions similarly to GSM but without roaming costs. The service also features several maritime application suites that can be accessed via private smartphone and tablets. SeaMore is currently in its beta-testing phase and will be installed on a select number of ships before its full commercial launch by July 2012.
