Telemar and Orbit Launch New Maritime Service
[Satellite TODAY 12-03-11] Telemar and Orbit Communications Group have joined forces to launch iCGlobal, a new maritime satellite communications offering. The new solution aims to combine the benefits of robust, all-weather global coverage of C-Band and cost-efficient scalable airtime packages with the compact OrBand VSAT system.
“iCGlobal is available in a wide range of pricing models and leasing packages which render it highly competitive in pricing while providing unlimited capacity, committed information rate (CIR) and superior performance than solutions such as hybrid Ku/FBB and future Ka. With this solution, ocean-going vessels can achieve true global connectivity today, and rest assured that the quality of service will be consistent anywhere and under any weather conditions,” Giorgio Santantonio, General Manager of Telemar said in a statement.
