Voyager IP, an Irish marine telecoms solutions specialist, has partnered with the Irish National Space Centre to win a €500,000 contract to manage the entire satellite communications service for the Irish Naval Fleet at home and abroad.
Mr Simon Coveney TD, the Irish minister for defence, agriculture, food and marine, officially launched the new service on Thursday 9th July 2015 and speaking at the event commented, "It’s great to see Irish companies like Voyager IP and the National Space Centre competing for and winning a contract like this. I wish them well for the future. Both companies will play an important role in supporting the Irish Naval Service with their current humanitarian mission in the Mediterranean.”
Voyager IP is providing the satellite airtime, technical assistance for the on-board systems and a 24-hour helpdesk from its base in Wicklow while the National Space Centre is providing the satellite network infrastructure.
Mark Elliott, managing director of Voyager IP said, “Marine internet speed is always a challenge and if you’re tired of switching between internet sources when one drops or goes into blockage, then Broadband Bonding from Voyager IP allows you to combine the various internet channels into one single channel. Whether you’re streaming, emailing or downloading you can seamlessly bond your Yachtspot, 3G/4G/LTE and shoreside connections in virtually any combination into one single high performance channel.”
