Marlink will introduce a new hybrid communication service at Nor-Shipping 2019. 

Dubbed Sealink Global 4G, as a turnkey solution it is designed to provide everything needed to leverage fast, low-latency mobile services when in network range while complementing VSAT connectivity when in regulated regions.

Devised as a single global capability with full predictability on performance and costs, Sealink Global 4G is a ready-to-go solution bringing a new dimension of low-latency and flexible connectivity to Marlink’s global multi-band maritime network. The subscription is part of Marlink’s suite of 4G Services that also allows ships to use alternative carriers such as Wi-Fi and mobile virtual networks.

The Sealink Global 4G service package is based on an onboard connectivity kit with options including Wi-Fi antenna, a Global 4G subscription and a subscription to Tampnet; the blistering fast, high-capacity offshore communication network for vessels operating in the North Sea or the Gulf of Mexico.
