Telemar, in Partnership with ORBIT and Milano Teleport, Unveils a New Paradigm in Global Maritime Broadband

ROME--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Telemar, the leading integrated maritime service and maintenance provider, in partnership with ORBIT Communication Systems, a provider of mission-critical connectivity solutions including satellite communications, and Milano Teleport, the largest independent teleport in Italy, announces the launch of iCGlobal, a new paradigm in maritime satellite communications. This flexible and future-proof solution combines the benefits of robust, all-weather global coverage of C-Band and cost-efficient scalable airtime packages with the easy-to-install and revolutionary compact OrBand VSAT system.

“With OrBand, customers can enjoy the benefits of global coverage and broadband VSAT in a system that is both compact and easy to install. OrBand is ideal for a wide variety of smaller vessels that simply cannot accommodate traditional C-Band systems.”

“iCGlobal is available in a wide range of pricing models and leasing packages which render it highly competitive in pricing while providing unlimited capacity, committed information rate (CIR) and superior performance than solutions such as hybrid Ku/FBB and future Ka,” said Giorgio Santantonio, General Manager of Telemar Compagnia Generale. “With this solution, ocean-going vessels can achieve true global connectivity today, and rest assured that the quality of service will be consistent anywhere and under any weather conditions.”

iCGlobal recommended package includes unlimited global airtime at 128kbps CIR, OrBand VSAT system and other necessary equipment as well as an extended warranty at a cost of $3,300 per month.

“iCGlobal is a strong addition to Telemar Group’s portfolio of communication services,” added Gennaro Faella, Director of Corporate Operative Coordination and Business Development for Telemar Group. “Telemar’s distinctive value is in the integration of best-of-breed technologies in order to create innovative solutions that deliver the specific mix of capabilities required by the various end users.”

A key component of the iCGlobal solution is OrBand, a compact C-Bband maritime VSAT system that was built specifically to overcome the limitations of traditional C-Bband terminals. OrBand takes up 40% less deck space than industry-standard systems and is over 30% lighter. Small enough to be shipped as a single, fully assembled and tested unit in a standard 20-foot container, OrBand drastically lowers deployment costs and can be installed in a matter of hours. This means that OrBand can be installed while ships are on routine port calls, substantially driving down operational costs and eliminating the need for vessels to await dry dock.

“Our newly released OrBand system represents the beginning of a new era in maritime C-Bband VSAT solutions,” said Avi Cohen, President and CEO of ORBIT Communication Systems. “With OrBand, customers can enjoy the benefits of global coverage and broadband VSAT in a system that is both compact and easy to install. OrBand is ideal for a wide variety of smaller vessels that simply cannot accommodate traditional C-Band systems.”

“With the growing demand for broadband at sea, we have invested in a wide range of satellite airtime services as well as advanced support and remote diagnostic solutions for the maritime market,” said Nicola Mossino, Maritime Managing Director for Milano Teleport S.p.A. “Our iSeaGlobal service specializes in the requirement of maritime customers, providing always-on data and voice communication with flat monthly rates, as well as a wide range of value added services.”
