Eutelsat to Supply Maritime Connectivity to MediaMobil
MediaMobil, a telecommunications company that provides internet to remote locations, signed a deal with Eutelsat Communications for maritime connectivity for ships and off-shore vessels. Eutelsat will supply its Advance managed service to connect MediaMobil’s fleet of more than 100 multipurpose, tanker, and offshore construction vessels.
MediaMobil is a long-time customer of Eutelsat’s. The deal announced Wednesday is a shift toward a service leasing agreement, which Eutelsat said is aligned with its strategy.
“The service license agreement will enable MediaMobil to further develop its position as provider of premium VSAT services while reducing the bandwidth costs for the users. The Eutelsat OSS capabilities will also facilitate MediaMobil’s development of integrated multi-orbit satellite services in conjunction with the LEO system which will bring a unique quality-of-experience to our customers,” commented MediaMobil CEO Andreas Nil.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed. This is Eutelsat’s latest win in the maritime segment for Advance after recently signing a deal with Can Marine Systems for access to satellite connectivity over the Asia-Pacific region.
