August 17, 2022 – Marlink has unveiled Sealink 60, a new Ku-band VSAT service designed to meet the needs of smaller merchant, offshore and fishing vessels. Created in response to the growing demand for regional VSAT coverage requiring a smaller antenna, Sealink 60 is designed to provide flexible, regional connectivity to vessels seeking to upgrade from L-band services. Sealink 60 offers users a choice of two lightweight and easy-to-install industry standard 60cm antennas and is available with different service plans, with or without guaranteed bandwidth. It can be provided to vessels in several regional coverage areas as well as during transits between areas. The service is offered with unlimited usage, data speeds up to 5 Mbps and a choice of Maximum Information Rate (MIR)-only or combined MIR/Committed Information Rate (CIR) plans. Designed with maximum flexibility in mind, the service can be upgraded from regional to global coverage, with short term bandwidth upgrades and up to six months of lay-up per year also available.
