13 Aug Marine Internet connectivity specialist
XCommNet, the superfast Internet connectivity specialist, has achieved one of its strategic development goals by entering the international marine market. This was done through the supply of two Viprinet systems to UK Border Force patrol vessels currently on duty in the Mediterranean helping with the migrant crisis. Read more here.
This supply contract was completed in association with Ambex Ltd, a company which specialises in the design, supply, integration, installation and support of law enforcement and military maritime systems.
“This has all come about very quickly,” Dominic Scott, Managing Director of XCommNet, commented. “The pressure of the migrant situation in the Mediterranean meant that the two systems were supplied in a hurry rather than working through a trial period. Apart from this special application we have identified the superyacht market as a particular opportunity to promote our systems to.”
On this contract XCommNet apart from working with Ambex, also collaborated with Arkessa, a leading M2M (Machine-to-Machine) managed services provider.
“This purchase fulfils one of XCommNet’s strategic ambitions of entering the global marine market which we have identified as a sector well-suited to our type of systems,” Scott added. “We have especially identified superyachts as XCommNet systems readily support owners carrying on their business activities wherever they happen to be using effective superfast internet connections.”
