Dualog Nordic and Viasat Inc. sign agreement to deliver high-speed KA service to Sea Cloud Cruises

Dualog Nordic has signed a contract with Viasat Inc., a global communications company based in Carlsbad, California, USA, and Sea Cloud Cruises GmbH (SCC) to supply their cruise sailing vessels with Viasat’s high-speed, Ka-band connectivity service in Europe, the Caribbean and Central America.

Through a network of owned and partner satellites, Viasat provides high-speed connectivity with unparalleled bandwidth so all passengers and crew on board can stream movies or TV, browse at their leisure, or connect with friends and family back home.

“For many passengers, fast connectivity wherever they are in the world is an increasingly important part of the cruise experience,” says Adam Pazdzioch, COO of Sea Cloud Cruises. “With Viasat technology on board, we know the system has the capability to reliably offer our international passengers better connectivity and speeds so they can stream those playoff game highlights or share videos of their travels with friends and family.”

“At Viasat, we believe capacity is the catalyst to an exceptional Wi-Fi experience across all connected devices on the vessel,” stated Stephen Light, manager, Maritime Business Development (EMEA) at Viasat. “The incredible volume of capacity enabled by our global satellite network allows us to offer consistent – and consistently fast – on board Wi-Fi at unmatched, cost-effective pricing.”

The recently signed reseller agreement allows Dualog Nordic to fill the gap for highly demanding customers, like superyachts, OSVs, and Oilrigs.

Additionally, the upgraded consistency and speeds for on-vessel Wi-Fi, combined with Dualog® Business Mail and Dualog® Drive products, enable SCC to integrate their ships with shore operations seamlessly, adding improved operational capacity.
