Inmarsat predicts ‘Today’s generation won’t go to sea without proper connectivity’


Recently, Frank Coles, the president of Inmarsat Maritime was reported saying “I see the day to come where a shipmanager is just a network operating centre with a bank of screens with sensors and videos onboard reporting everything.”

He puts forward the idea that maritime communications will be integral to how the shipping industry operates in the next five to 10 years. With FleetMedia being lunched by Inmarsat next month, an agreement with US firm NT Digital, will give crew members the luxury of catching up with films and TV broadcasts from around the globe.
