Commercial Maritime

Seamless connectivity at sea

When ‘best-effort’ isn’t good enough

From increasing safety, protecting the environment, and responding rapidly to geopolitical developments, reliable internet is no longer a luxury, but a critical system for every ocean fleet.

SES Commercial Maritime is built from the water up with CIR (Committed Information Rates), backed up by Service Level Agreements, and our 24/7 on-call network operations team is standing by to help you when you need it.

No resource is infinite, but with our bandwidth pool-based services it can feel that way. We allow you to allocate resources to your vessels as you see fit - giving you the control to manage contention in a way that makes sense for your business.

Connectivity at Sea

Keep your crew onboard

For seafarers away from home for months, an internet connection is a literal lifeline. It is saying goodnight to partner, a video of your child saying they miss you, a chance to live a little of life back home.

Reliable, high-performing internet is now a key requirement for both recruiting and retaining staff, and boosting the wellbeing of those spending months away from their homes and families.
