      Globecomm has installed a complete communications solution on MV Baltic, the latest newbuild to join the Global Seatrade fleet. Globecomm delivered its Ku-band Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) solution with Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services, an Iridium Pilot L-Band system and KNS S8 antenna to enable flat-fee internet access and live TV services onboard the new heavy cargo roll-on/roll-off vessel ship.

      MV Baltic is a specialist heavy cargo carrier of 3,500 dwt designed by Hartman Marine to carry heavy and project cargoes including windfarm and other offshore components, locomotives and yachts. Globecomm has provided data connectivity for the company’s previous vessel newbuilds over the past decade.

      Globecomm VSAT is a global network based on the iDirect Evolution IP-based platform technology. Providing a range of narrowband and high-throughput applications over a scalable network, it enables automatic beam switching, as well as access to new High-Throughput Satellite (HTS) services, providing access to Ku-, Ka-, and C-band on a single platform.
