Connectivity solution

Global Connectivity

Thanks to our multi-branded approach, we can combine hardware and services to give you the best service possible. For instance, a Ku-band VSAT service to give a fast and unlimited data connection in combination with a slower but reliable Fleet Broadband or Iridium connection to keep you connected when the Ku-band doesn’t suffice. In this case, the more expensive Inmarsat network is only in use when needed the most. This way, you’ll always be in touch, no matter where you are. Wärtsilä is your one stop shop for all your connectivity solutions, providing you with a risk-free choice.
