SES announced that Telenor Maritime has signed a multi-year agreement to provide high-speed broadband access to eight Silversea cruise ships via SES Networks’ Maritime+ solution. Telenor Maritime will use SES’ maritime solution to offer capacity of up to 150Mbps.

Passengers onboard these eight ships will be able to stay connected through social network accounts, audio and video conferencing apps, and will also be able to stream video as they sail to travel destinations ranging from Brazil to Antarctica.

Designed especially for service providers, the SES Networks Maritime+ solution combines global ground and space infrastructure to deliver connectivity as vessels sail across the region, and allows for upgraded coverage and service as needed, according to the company. SES Networks is a newly created SES business unit focused on delivering differentiated satellite-enabled solutions for data-centric customers.
