Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. et O3b Networks élargissent leur partenariat d'affaires pour offrir à leurs invités à bord du paquebot de croisière Allure of the Seas un accès Internet ultrarapide et abordable

O3b Networks a conclu une deuxième entente historique et pluriannuelle avec Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. pour fournir un service à la large bande haut débit par satellite à bord de l'un des navires de croisière les plus imposants et les plus révolutionnaires au monde, Allure of the Seas. Plus de 8 000 invités, employés et membres d'équipage voyageant dans les Caraïbes auront, en mer, un accès Internet au débit similaire à celui de la fibre optique.

Royal Caribbean est la première société à avoir montré à O3b de l'intérêt pour sa nouvelle aux transporteurs maritimes, O3b Maritime, à bord du navire sœur d'Allure of the Seas, Oasis of the Seas, en signant un contrat l'été dernier. Désormais, les invités et l'équipage d'Allure of the Seas pourront télécharger des données à la vitesse de l'éclair et profiteront d'une performance estimée à quatre fois celle des réseaux satellite en orbite géostationnaire (GEO) actuels et en voie de production. O3b Maritime sera l'unique réseau satellite capable d'offrir des services à large bande aux invités et à l'équipage de croisiéristes à parité avec les normes de télécommunication terrestres.

« Les invités de paquebots de croisière souhaitent profiter de services téléphoniques et Internet d'une qualité équivalant à celle de ceux offerts sur le continent. Nous sommes fiers d'être le premier croisiériste à fournir à nos invités et à notre équipage des services de connectivité novateurs pour des navires du calibre d'Oasis, seuls de leur catégorie, a indiqué Bill Martin, directeur des systèmes d'information, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. Cette toute dernière entente montre notre confiance à l'endroit de la société O3b Networks et l'importance de la nouvelle donne de la connectivité qu'elle prévoit offrir à bord de nos navires. »

« Grâce à ces ententes, O3b Networks et Royal Caribbean pourront bientôt offrir une plus grande largeur de bande que se partagent actuellement tous les navires de croisière des Caraïbes regroupés, faisant de O3b le leader incontesté de ce marché, a déclaré Steve Collar, PDG, O3b Networks. Le partenariat de O3b Networks avec Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. continue de s'élargir, et ceux qui en sont les véritables gagnants sont les invités et l'équipage à bord des navires en mer les plus novateurs. Cette alliance repose sur une mission commune fondée sur la conviction qu'Internet devrait toujours être accessible, tant sur la terre ferme qu'au large. »
