Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. e O3b Networks Expandem Parceria Comercial para Oferecer aos Hóspedes a bordo do Navio de Cruzeiro Allure of the Seas Acesso à Internet Ultrarrápido e Viável

A O3b Networks assinou um segundo acordo histórico plurianual com a Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. para fornecer serviço de banda larga de alta velocidade por satélite a bordo de um dos maiores e mais revolucionários navios de cruzeiro do mundo, o Allure of the Seas. Mais de 8.000 hóspedes, funcionários e membros da tripulação que viajam pelo Caribe se conectarão a velocidades como as de cabos por fibra no mar.

A Royal Caribbean foi a primeira a obter o novo produto marítimo da O3b - O3bMaritime - a bordo do navio-irmã do Allure of the Seas, o Oasis of the Seas quando eles assinaram um contrato no verão passado. Agora, os hóspedes e tripulantes a bordo do Allure of the Seas poderão desfrutar das altíssimas velocidades de download e do desempenho previsto que também será quatro vezes mais sensível do que os sistemas existentes e previstos de satélite GEO. O O3b Maritime será o único sistema via satélite capaz de fornecer aos hóspedes da linha do cruzeiro e tripulantes serviços de banda larga com o mesmo nível dos padrões de telecomunicações em terra.

"Os hóspedes de navios de cruzeiro esperam serviços de Internet e voz com a mesma qualidade que têm em terra. Estamos orgulhosos por ser a primeira empresa de cruzeiros a oferecer aos hóspedes e tripulantes a bordo de nossa inovadora classe de navios Oasis serviços de conectividade inigualáveis", disse Bill Martin, Diretor de TI da Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.. "Este último acordo sublinha a nossa confiança na O3b Networks e no nível de conectividade divisor de águas que ele está definido para oferecer a bordo de nossos navios."

"Através desses acordos, a O3b Networks e a Royal Caribbean em breve oferecerão mais largura de banda do que está atualmente está disponível em todos os navios de cruzeiro juntos no Caribe, tornando a O3b a líder absoluta de mercado", disse Steve Collar, Diretor-Presidente, O3b Networks. "A parceria entre a O3b Networks e a Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. continua a se expandir, e os verdadeiros ganhadores são os hóspedes e os tripulantes a bordo dos navios mais inovadores no mar. A aliança se baseia em uma missão compartilhada construída sobre a crença de que a Internet deve estar sempre ao alcance - quer na terra, quer no mar".
