Research and Markets: Global Maritime VSAT Market Report, 2016
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/mp6vrv/global_maritime)
has announced the addition of the "Global
Maritime VSAT Market Report, 2016" report to their offering.
One of the main drivers in this market is the need to reduce operational
cost. VSAT services help operators in the Shipping industry to reduce
their operational costs. Previously, an L-band dial-up connection was
the only technology available to provide broadband services to crew
members. However, the main drawback of L-band systems is the high cost
of data transfer. This resulted in high overall operational cost because
vessel operators used high bandwidth applications such as ERP software
to transfer large data files.
In recent years, the expansion of terrestrial networks, cellular
networks, and microwave and satellite coverage in several continents has
increased significantly. Although maritime communication has improved
over the years, it still lags behind the advanced communication
technology used on land. The convergence of voice, video, and data to
all-IP networks has simultaneously simplified the users' requirement.
However, the users now know that it is possible to connect every device
and data source on a ship to a singe network, and they expect that
solutions should be as simple as their home enterprise solutions.
However, the IP revolution has also driven an explosion of new products
and services. In recent years, the demand for broadband services in the
Maritime industry is increasing rapidly due to the growing adoption of
IP-based applications for a seamless connection with the land-based
operations. In addition, commercial vessels require high-speed
connections to run on-board business, maintain vessel management, and
maintenance applications. Further, for retaining crew members, several
vessel owners are providing on-board broadband internet connection and
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this
market is the presence of on-board technical issues. For instance, the
interruption of VSAT services due to rain fade is one of the major
issues faced by maritime VSAT vendors. Rain fade refers to the
absorption of microwave radio frequency signals by rain drops, which
causes a disruption of network connectivity.
