Independent satellite communications provider NSSLGlobal today announces the launch of FusionIP, which combines VSAT and cellular connectivity within the same device. Within one single 60cm SAILOR dome, FusionIP integrates the best of two worlds; LTE and satellite broadband, allowing ships to automatically switch between 4G/3G and satellite networks to achieve optimum data speeds and cost efficiency.
NSSLGlobal’s new product presents a convenient, all-in-one, ‘unified communications’ solution that is easy to install and provides a global “one SIM, one contract” package with speeds up to 100Mbits.
FusionIP represents a leap forward in terms of convenience. With one aesthetically pleasing antenna, a single system, and one point of contact for technical information, the new product/service is ideal for yachts, crew transfer vessels, offshore wind installation vessels, fishing vessels and coastal commercial vessels.
“We’ve seen a great deal of demand for hybrid systems in the last few months,” commented Sally-Anne Ray, CEO, NSSLGlobal. “We felt, however, that we could deliver a better experience than what was already in the market. We’ve eliminated the need to wire-in and support multiple devices, or to spoil the aesthetics of a vessel with multiple antennas. We’ve also eliminated the need to use multiple SIMs. Instead, we’ve provided a highly-optimised, convenient, aesthetically-pleasing solution that is easy to install and delivers entirely predictable, optimised pricing anywhere in the world, with no effort. It’s simply a case of ‘plug it in and go’.”
