Speedcast International Limited has signed a partnership agreement with India’s fastest growing VSAT service provider Nelco Limited, a Tata Enterprise, to offer seamless global communications while at sea in Indian waters. This is the first partnership of its kind where vessels of either company will be able to connect to the Ku-band networks of both companies seamlessly in and out of Indian waters.
In this partnership, Nelco will also extend to its customers Speedcast’s industry-leading products and services, which include cybersecurity, crew welfare, content solutions, and data and voice applications. Until today, when vessels entered Indian territory, they were required to shut down their VSAT connection. Under the new partnership agreement, customers of either company can roam into each other’s respective territories of coverage and maintain uninterrupted communications while at sea. Under this agreement, Speedcast will integrate with the Nelco network to allow either parties’ customers to maintain connection while roaming between the different satellite coverage beams and teleports. With an integrated network, the service achieves global IP access for remote terminals and optimizes the global connectivity experience for our customers. ―APSCC
