CACHEBOX Mediterranean cruise
ApplianSys announced today that Video & Suono Telecom SA, a satellite applications specialist in Athens, Greece, has bought a CACHEBOX solution to improve internet usability for cruise ships.
Video & Suono Telecom provides Gateway internet services via satellite to vessels sailing in the Greek and Adriatic Sea. President and CEO Christos Charatsaris explains, “There is strong demand from our passengers for internet access. But bandwidth availability becomes very limited when you’re thousands of miles into the sea. With CACHEBOX we are able to save bandwidth and improve connectivity for passengers. We want to put a cache box in each vessel.”
CACHEBOX Head of Sales Roger Clark says, “There’s heavy demand for CACHEBOX on ships and remote islands. In these cases where the maximum available bandwidth is insufficient, CACHEBOX dramatically reduces the amount of bandwidth needed to use the internet effectively.”
Video & Suono Telecom S.A (www.videosuono.gr) delivers expertise in the field of satellite applications. It provides Gateway internet services via satellite to forty vessels that cruise in the Greek Isles and Adriatic Sea. Video & Suono Telecom uses professional and high quality satellite modems created by Comtech.
