BROADBAND COMMS ORDER FROM BALTIC FERRY OPERATOR

Wednesday, September 18, 2019 

Swedish maritime communications company AecorLink has been awarded a contract with Viking Line, to significantly improve the internet connectivity onboard the operator's ferries.

The demand for fast broadband, from the ferry operator itself, its guests and the crew, is constantly increasing. Reliable internet connection is vital not least in order to attract onboard conference guests, a segment which Viking Line is targeting. AecorLink, together with its service and installation partner Specto Remote, delivers high-speed broadband from a number of base stations along the routes, and a new proprietary configuration which effectively tracks the base stations over large distances.

Viking Line has already implemented the new technology on the cruise ferry Viking Grace since May this year, on the route from Stockholm to Turku over the high season. Viking Line now will integrate the rest of the fleet with the network and expand the infrastructure to include full coverage between Sweden, Finland and Estonia.

“Viking Line is for us a high-profile client, with a renowned name in the maritime ferry industry, so it is of course a fantastic opportunity helping Viking Line becoming even more competitive. To participate and to deliver this network where we and everyone can see this vast demand, is extremely motivating. We know the invaluable difference it makes offering passengers access to high speed broadband with low latency. AecorLink has for many years refined its innovative, ship to shore, seamless microwave technology. We have today the most stable solution with unbeaten capacity over the longest distances in the business. The new coverage between Sweden, Finland and Estonia is now in place, designed for many more clients to easily access it at very reasonable terms.” said Ulf Harderup of AecorLink.

“We see this project as part of our continuing commitment to improve our customer’s experience onboard Viking Line’s vessels. AecorLink’s established and proven network gave us the confidence to select them as our business partner in this area” said Kaj Sundström, Network and Communications Manager for Viking Line.
