Speedcast, a provider of remote communication and IT solutions, has signed a partnership agreement with VSAT service provider Nelco Limited, a subsidiary of Tata Enterprise, to offer seamless global communications while at sea in Indian waters.
The partnership is a first-of-its kind which is aimed at connecting vessels of both the companies to Ku-band networks which will help both the companies to seamlessly communicate in and out of Indian waters. As part of the partnership Nelco will leverage several capabilities of Speedcast including cybersecurity.
“In this partnership with Nelco we are able to open up the Indian market to drive new growth for both Speedcast and Nelco, as well as deliver the best possible customer experience,” said Speedcast CEO Pierre-Jean Beylier. “We are proud to be offering a unique proposition to thousands of vessels sailing in and out of Indian waters every year and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship between Speedcast and Nelco.”

Ever since then the company has been on a roll. “”Companies are undergoing digital transformation and implementing automation across all levels of their organizations,” said Tim Bailey, Executive Vice President, Products, Marketing & Business Development, Speedcast at the launch. “Our Cybersecurity as a Service solution provides advanced cybersecurity applications and best-in-class services, enabling our customers to proactively control cyber threats.
