Cobham and SpeedCast team up on maritime broadband

Cobham SATCOM and SpeedCast International have established a partnership that will see them develop maritime broadband capacity.

The global framework agreement will run for three years, covering provision of maritime stabilised antennas which create high-speed connectivity at sea.

“The framework agreement benefits both SpeedCast and Cobham and supports our ability to innovate and deliver reliable communications services that help our customers to operate smarter through better communication,” said Pierre-Jean Beylier, CEO, SpeedCast.

The new agreement confers SpeedCast with distribution partner status. It is the basis of a strategic partnership that enables Cobham to extend the reach of Cobham SATCOM’s SAILOR and Sea Tel Brand VSAT and TVRO antennas across SpeedCast’s extensive global sales and support network.

“With 30% year-on-year gains, we are currently experiencing dramatic growth on the SAILOR VSAT platform worldwide,” said Casper Jensen, SVP and head of Cobham SATCOM.

Cobham’s portfolio of stabilised antenna systems for Inmarsat’s new Fleet Xpress service will become a key part of SpeedCast’s service portfolio through the agreement. Alongside the SAILOR 60 GX 60 cm antenna and the SAILOR 100 GX 1 m antenna for Fleet Xpress, SpeedCast will also deliver improved performance on Ku-band networks for end users with the all new SAILOR 900 VSAT high power system.
