Fleet Broadband

If your applications require a mix of high and low bandwidth connectivity without capital costs breaking the bank, the Fleet Broadband service can be your most responsive solution. OCENS Fleet 150 packages from Skipper or Sailor are ideal for small to medium-sized Expedition vessels where space is particularly limiting but broadband connections a necessity. The Fleet 250 systems are best suited for customers who demand higher upload and download speeds or experience heavier networking demands such as is the case if guest access to the Internet is something you are considering. Coverage extends from 70 N to 70 S


OCENS sells the V3 VSAT system and service. VSAT best addresses that portion of the Expedition market where Internet access is a must. Although the V3 capital costs are significantly higher and its speeds inferior to the bandwidth available through Fleet Broadband, it delivers broadband access at a much lower cost per megabyte than can Inmarsat’s Fleet Broadband. As a result, extensive Internet access for guests and vessel operations can be affordable if managed properly. Coverage is regional.


With the new Sidekick Wi-Fi / Firewall device you can avoid runaway satellite phone airtime bills thanks to its powerful firewall and it makes connection your PC or Mac computer to your satellite phone effortless. The Sidekick creates a Wi-Fi hotspot (or provides Ethernet ports) for you to quickly and easily connect your computer to your satellite equipment without hassle of installing USB drivers and dial-up networking services on your computer.
