Speedcast's experience with Royal Caribbean dates back to 2006, when the company installed RCCL's first Ku-Band VSAT antenna on board a vessel to satisfy peak seasonal communication demand in the Brazil region. The Speedcast network now delivers fully managed communications solutions and value-added services to 37 Royal Caribbean brand ships for shipboard administration, and guest and crew usage. Multiple antennas on each ship with seamless automatic failover between Ku-Band and C-Band ensures high availability and Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
