The AST Group (AST), a global provider of satellite communication services and solutions, has announced that they have recently won a contract with SEACOR Marine International (SEACOR) to supply VSAT and failover satellite communications to 30 vessels.

The agreement sees AST supplying VSAT and back-up communications for SEACOR’s North Sea and West African fleets providing bandwidth for VOIP and data services over multiple satellite networks enabling vessels to move freely from region to region with no disruption.

With SEACOR’s fleet operating in the challenging OSV market a flexible, affordable and reliable solution was required. As well as competitive pricing and 24/7 support SEACOR Marine were able to benefit from AST’s unique INTEGRA network providing real time application identification and control, ensuring bandwidth is utilised efficiently on-board for both operational & crew welfare purposes in a secure manner.

Stuart Castell, AST Broadband Director comments; “We are proud to supply SEACOR with VSAT and backup satellite communications for their very busy fleet, this contract further highlights AST’s ability to supply and support large VSAT requirements on a global basis.”

Richard Marshall, International Communications Manager, SEACOR Marine International says of the deal; “We have a long working relationship with AST, and are delighted to announce the awarding of this contract. We have always been impressed with AST’s responsiveness and professional approach to the provision of satellite services and look forward to our continued close relationship. We are already seeing the benefits of running our satellite services through the INTEGRA network and can now identify the source of encrypted data being used on our vessels from any type of device, mobile, tablet or laptop.”
