Zwana is the same no matter what connectivity a customer may select. Combined with Intelsat’s FlexMaritime we offer a global, multi-layered high-throughput satellite service able to deliver high-quality connectivity both in speed and reliability anywhere at sea. Focusing on our customer’s needs such as decarbonization, crew welfare, and operational excellence is our target!

WHAT IS FLEXMARITIME?

FlexMaritime is Intelsat’s Ku-band satellite connectivity. It is a global, multi-layered high-throughput satellite service able to deliver high quality connectivity both in speed and reliability anywhere at sea. The operator has a fleet of more than 50 satellites enabling global, reliable connectivity offering VSAT services.

APPLICABLE TO EVERY SEGMENT

Merchant shipping, Leisure, Passenger/Cruise ships, fishing or offshore rigs can utilize this service.
Enable the “remote” office at sea where onshore organizations seamlessly communicate with the vessels/units at sea enabling better and more optimized operations. Fuel consumption savings, voyage planning and weather monitoring is just few of the results of a great communication. Mission-critical applications for offshore platforms and vessel operations, as well as passenger accessibility onboard cruise vessels, is achieved via solid and uninterrupted connectivity. Optimized performance is achieved by monitoring, analyzing and acting proactively. Connectivity is responsible at a certain level not only for the optimized and green operation but at the same time for the crew welfare onboard by providing web access to browse on the web, video streaming, get access to telemedicine and training. Stay connected with loved ones is part of good mental health and happiness.

WHAT IS KU-BAND?

The Ku-band (symbol is short for “K-under”) frequency spectrum (12-18GHz) for satellite communication is commonly used for maritime VSAT services and broadcast satellite television. Global capacity and high availability mean that Ku-band systems can be an economical and flexible means of obtaining a high throughput on smaller reflector dishes than needed for C-band VSAT, making it suitable for a wider range of vessels.
