Radio Holland adds Ku-band footprint to its global VSAT network
Seamless coverage at all major shipping routes around the world
In August 2009, Radio Holland signed an agreement for the VSAT Ku-band footprint T11N. With this new footprint Radio Holland significantly improves its network for VSAT. The Telstar 11N is designed to be a Ku-band satellite with an Atlantic Ocean beam. This beam is very important for the shipping industry, sailing between North-America and Europe. The extension adds to the strategic priority of Radio Holland to provide seamless global coverage of maritime broadband communications.
Dé Slager, CEO of the Radio Holland Group: “While Radio Holland traditionally is known as a supplier of navigation and communication equipment, our strategic focus now and in the future is directed towards services such as providing Connectivity and Managed Services Agreements. It allows us to provide a total, efficient and effective solution. More and more Radio Holland becomes one point of contact for the shipowner, for a whole package of systems and services.”
With the addition of the Ku-band footprint, Radio Holland can provide seamless coverage at all major shipping routes around the world. With “Connector by Radio Holland” Radio Holland can offer customers a total connectivity solution; hardware, installation, service and airtime, which includes ‘always-on’ unlimited broadband internet access, low cost voice over IP (VoIP) calls, email, GSM on board and other value added services.
