Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. y O3b Networks expanden su alianza comercial para proporcionar a los pasajeros del Crucero Allure of the Seas comunicaciones de Internet ultrarápidas y accesibles

O3b Networks firmó un histórico segundo acuerdo por varios años con Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. para proveer un servicio de banda ancha satelital de alta velocidad al crucero más grande e innovador del mundo, el Allure of the Seas. Más de 8.000 personas incluyendo pasajeros, miembros del personal y tripulación recorriendo el Caribe podrán conectarse utilizando velocidades similares a las de la fibra óptica en el medio del mar.

Por medio de un acuerdo firmado el verano pasado, Royal Caribbean fue el primero en utilizar el nuevo ofrecimiento marítimo de O3b, denominado O3bMaritime, en el Oasis of the Seas, buque gemelo del Allure of the Seas. En la actualidad los pasajeros y tripulación a bordo del Allure of the Seas podrán realizar descargas y ejecutar programas a velocidades increíbles que se espera sean cuatro veces más confiables que los sistemas satelitales GEO existentes y programados. O3bMaritime será el único sistema satelital que permitirá a los pasajeros y la tripulación del crucero el uso de servicios de banda ancha a la altura de las normas de telecomunicación terrestre.

“Los pasajeros del crucero esperan obtener la misma calidad en servicios de voz e Internet que disfrutan cuando están en tierra firme. Estamos orgullosos de ser la primera compañía de cruceros en ofrecer, tanto a los pasajeros como a la tripulación a bordo de los buques clase Oasis, nuestros innovadores servicios de conectividad sin punto de comparación”, afirmó Bill Martin, director de informática para Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. “Este último acuerdo intensifica nuestra confianza en O3b Networks y el innovador nivel de conectividad proporcionado a bordo de nuestros buques.”

“Gracias a estos acuerdos, O3b Networks y Royal Caribbean pronto podrán proporcionar un ancho de banda mayor al actualmente disponible en todos los buques en el Caribe, convirtiendo a O3b en el líder indiscutido del mercado,” expresó Steve Collar, director ejecutivo de O3b Networks. “La alianza entre O3b Networks y Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. continua creciendo, y los verdaderos ganadores son los pasajeros y tripulación de los buques más innovadores que recorren el océano. Esta alianza se basa en una misión compartida construida sobre la idea de que Internet siempre debe estar a nuestro alcance – en la tierra y en el mar.”
