Telemar SeaCall VSAT network gets major coverage boost in Africa, the Indian Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico
Telemar´s VSAT network already covers 95% of the Earth’s surface, including all of the world’s major commercial shipping routes, mining areas, offshore oil rigs and fishing domains. These additional beams will not only extend the network it will provide greater availability through overlapping coverage in key areas of these markets. The new Ku-Band beam went live at the beginning of January 2016 and runs on the Yamal-402 satellite (55° East) covering Sub-Saharan Africa and waters around Madagascar and the Indian Ocean. This will further extend Telemar´s already industry-leading satellite coverage into the Indian Ocean, further improving user experience for vessels cruising in the Indian Ocean and using Telemar´s VSAT service. In addition, this beam will further strengthen the coverage over the African continent, which is also a strategically important area.
Telemar also added a new beam to its global C-band coverage in January 2016. Running on the Intelsat IS-23 (53° West) the new beam is specifically targeted to give increased capacity and alternative look angles for vessels in the Gulf of Mexico. The beam also covers most of the North and South American mainland, coastal waters to the West of Mexico, and significant coastline around the South Americas.
