Recently, global satellite and radio technology developer Thrane & Thrane (News - Alert) has announced to supply market-leading SAILOR FleetBroadband terminals to Thome Ship Management, under a new frame agreement facilitated by AND Group plc.
Thome is an international shipping service supplier that manages a diverse fleet in excess of 180 vessels. Under the terms of this agreement, a combination of SAILOR 250 FleetBroadband and the flagship SAILOR 500 FleetBroadband bundled with airtime packages will be delivered to vessels managed by Thome.
Officials said that both the SAILOR 250 FleetBroadband and SAILOR 500 FleetBroadband feature the new Enhanced Inmarsat (News - Alert) Multi-voice service, which will be available on all SAILOR FleetBroadband terminals without the need to add an external IPPBX.
They not only offer reliable data connectivity for e-mail, file transfer, fax, Internet, VPN and efficiency enhancing IP applications, but also offer up to nine simultaneous voice lines.
“This project involves a large number of vessels from different ship owners, so we need to be sure that the system we have chosen is easy to install and offers a good balance between cost and performance. SAILOR FleetBroadband clearly offers this so we are more than happy to put these incredibly reliable terminals on vessels under our management,” comments Ryan Dalgado, Procurement & Supply Chain Manager, Thome Ship Management.
Thrane & Thrane has delivered well over 25,000 SAILOR FleetBroadband terminals to date, which has established the company as the FleetBroadband terminal market leader.
