How advanced connectivity powers profitability

Within the next decade, analysts forecast that nearly 150,000 broadband-enabled vessels will ply the seas.  That’s because connectivity and digital applications deliver savings on productivity, time in port, fuel, maintenance and crew turnover that easily outweigh the increased cost.  What owners and managers need is a connectivity partner that delivers reliability and high quality service everywhere their vessels sail.

The SIGMA Ecosystem makes the difference

It’s a unified platform that extends from terminals and technology onboard to our cloud-based network management system. It brings together GEO, MEO, LEO and L-band satellite with fiber, microwave and cellular into a single, seamless connection that adapts automatically to change, from location to weather. It provides one-touch activation and management, and even supports virtual machines that run your applications on-network for best performance. We call it the SIGMA Ecosystem. You’ll call it amazing.
