[Via Satellite 11-04-2015] ITC Global has been awarded a multi-million dollar deal with an undisclosed international offshore energy services company. The multi-year contract for Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) connectivity was designed to deliver a highly efficient and reliable network service while streamlining the customer’s operating costs and focusing on integrated features including pooled bandwidth, integrated 4G LTE network access, GSM picocell coverage, and access to transit network services. ITC Global is handling the system build out and integration and testing, with most deployments being completed in the North Sea and Gulf of Mexico.
To support the customer’s crew communications needs, ITC Global’s new crew welfare solution, ITC Crew Live, is being deployed on each vessel via separate 1m stabilized antenna systems. The dedicated system provides crewmembers with wireless access for voice, Internet and content streaming, and does not compete with the corporate network requirements onboard each vessel. The solution offers crews the ability to purchase allocated bandwidth for their laptops, phones or other personal devices. As part of the communications solution design, the entire system is being integrated to enable the customer to use the crew welfare network or 4G service as back up to the corporate network.
