Network Connectivity for Maritime Operations

Equip your maritime operations with the high-speed network connectivity that bandwidth hungry passengers, crew and vessels need.

It’s not just cruise passengers who want internet access at sea anymore. Passengers and crew on ferries, fishing vessels, and tour boats all need to be connected. Passengers expect to surf the web, hold video calls and stream movies – just like they do on land. 

Crews need to complete payment transactions, monitor equipment, access real-time supply chain information and share passenger and cargo manifests – as well as have access to the internet for crew welfare. Vessel safety depends on sensor data, constant equipment monitoring, and instant access to information—from weather to port congestion to security.

Through Geostationary (GEO) and Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite broadband, Hughes enables cost-effective and efficient onboard network connectivity to support all of your passenger, crew and equipment bandwidth needs.

Our high-performance, high-throughput satellite systems can be deployed to support vessels and fleets of all sizes around the world.

Greater capacity and high-speed network connectivity. Hughes solutions deliver the GEO and/or LEO capacity necessary to keep vessels full of passengers and crew connected with high speeds and reliable service from the time they board until they disembark.

The JUPITER™ System enables commercial maritime operators to make use of the best available satellite capacity over individual routes and waterways – including Ku-, Ka- and C-band satellites worldwide.

Seamless roaming. As a vessel travels, our JUPITER System solutions enable automatic switching between beams and satellites for seamless roaming across maritime networks.

LEO equipment from a variety of ecosystem partners can be integrated into a Hughes solution to meet your maritime system’s needs from the middle of the ocean to the Arctic region.

Find the maritime mobility solution that’s right for you.
