Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. und O3b Networks erweitern ihre Geschäftspartnerschaft, um Gästen an Bord der Allure of the Seas Kreuzfahrtschiffe ultraschnellen und erschwinglichen Internetzugang zu ermöglichen

O3b Networks hat einen zweiten historischen, mehrjährigen Vertrag mit Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. unterzeichnet, um einen Hochgeschwindigkeits-Breitbandservice via Satellit an Bord eines der weltweit größten und innovativsten Kreuzfahrtschiffe – der Allure of the Seas – zur Verfügung stellen zu können. Mehr als 8000 Gäste und Crewmitglieder, die mit Caribbean reisen, können selbst auf hoher See von glasfaserähnlichen Geschwindigkeiten im Netz profitieren.

Royal Caribbean war der erste Anbieter, der den neuen O3b-Service O3bMaritime an Bord des Schwesterschiffs Oasis of the Seas der Allure of the Seas bereitstellen konnte, als die beiden Unternehmen im letzten Sommer den Vertrag unterzeichneten. Nun können die Gäste und Crewmitglieder an Bord der Allure of the Seas von den ultrahohen Download-Geschwindigkeiten und überragenden Leistungswerten profitieren, die gegenwärtige und geplante GEO-Satellitensysteme voraussichtlich um das Vierfache übertreffen werden. O3bMaritime wird das einzige Satellitensystem sein, das in der Lage ist, den Gästen und Crewmitgliedern von Kreuzfahrtschiffen Breitband-Serviceleistungen zur Verfügung zu stellen, die mit den Telekommunikationsstandards an Land tatsächlich Schritt halten können.

„Die Gäste von Kreuzfahrtschiffen erwarten dieselbe Sprach- und Internet-Qualität wie bei Festnetzverbindungen. Es erfüllt uns mit Stolz, nun feststellen zu können, dass wir die erste Kreuzfahrtgesellschaft sind, die den Gästen und Crewmitgliedern an Bord unserer innovativen Schiffe der Oasis-Klasse Telekommunikationsdienste anbieten können, die denjenigen anderer Anbieter weit voraus sind”, so Bill Martin, Chief Information Officer der Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. „Dieser jüngste Vertrag unterstreicht unser Vertrauen in O3b Networks und das Konnektivitätsniveau an Bord unserer Schiffe, das die Regeln des Wettbewerbs nachhaltig verändern wird.”

„Mithilfe dieser Verträge werden O3b Networks und Royal Caribbean künftig in der Lage sein, auf allen Kreuzfahrtschiffen des Unternehmens mehr Bandbreite zur Verfügung zu stellen. Somit wird O3b zum absoluten Marktführer", so Steve Collar, CEO bei O3b Networks. „Die Partnerschaft zwischen O3b Networks und Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. wird noch weiter ausgebaut und die eigentlichen Gewinner werden die Gäste und Crewmitglieder an Bord der innovativsten Schiffe sein. Die Allianz verfolgt eine Mission, basierend auf unserer Überzeugung, dass das Internet immer erreichbar sein sollte – sowohl an Land als auch auf hoher See.”

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
