Crest Subsea Vessels, Orange Partner for Satellite System for Marine Communications

By Raju Shanbhag, TMCnet Contributor

Looking to improve communication infrastructure of its diving support vessels, Crest Subsea has chosen Orange Business Services. According to the agreement, Orange (News - Alert) Business Services will combine and manage a VSAT satellite communication system specially developed for marine communications.

Through antenna linked to satellites orbiting the earth, the new VSAT system will connect vessels to the Pacific Radiance (News - Alert) network. Facilitating access to all business applications as if the vessel is a terrestrial office, the deployment of this new solution will integrate the vessels into the corporate network. Now, crews on Crest Subsea vessels can stay in contact with their families by phone, e-mail and online chat for as long as they want with the solution provided by Orange Business Services (News - Alert).

Orange Business Services, the France Telecom Orange branch dedicated to B2B services, is a global integrator of communications solutions for multinational corporations.

“Crest Subsea particularly valued the Orange contribution in simplifying the complexity of the network infrastructure via a joint development of a technology and innovation roadmap to enhance workforce effectiveness,” stated Bruce Saunders, general manager, Crest Subsea. “By using experienced consultants backed up by the full resources of Orange Satellite team, Orange offered reliable delivery in a leading edge and complex area.”

With satellite communication system deployed and managed by Orange Business Services, Crest Subsea can manage the increased flow of data sent and received by the vessels. Also, the company can provide its customers the use of its IT equipment and tools and generate new sources of income.

Recently, the company was awarded for the third consecutive year -- three significant ISO certification renewals for its worldwide management systems, covering the merit of its services, security and quality assurance for enterprise customers. Orange Business Services environmental management system has been recognized for the first time. This new certification supports one of the key priorities in Conquests 2015 five-year strategy: making sure Orange is a caring and socially responsible employer.
