7 March 2023 – Growing demand for better connectivity at sea will be answered with the creation of a Maritime division by the company behind the world’s first satellite capacity aggregation platform.
neXat’s new Maritime Unit will offer satcom installations on a variety of boats and on-board IT services including radar, Video Graphics Array (VGA), and Digital Visual Interface (DVI) cabling.
Mario Alen, Business Unit Executive – Maritime
The unit will be headed up by the former owner of Belgosat, Mario Alen, and is part of neXat’s Operations department, led by Founding Partner & Chief Operations Officer Caroline De Vos.
“Connectivity at sea is at the point of being a necessity rather than a luxury. That is why we are dedicated to providing customers with the best satellite communications needed to carry out tasks on and offshore,” said De Vos. “neXat is pleased to have taken this opportunity and we look forward to welcoming Mario to the team. His established skills and knowledge of the sector will help us thrive in this new business venture.”
Mario will strengthen the neXat team by sharing his knowledge and expertise to help customers in the maritime and industrial sectors access video, voice and data communications at sea and onshore through a variety of solutions, including satellite, IoT, CCTV, and powerline connectivity.
The first year of the new business venture will see the start of the installations process, before expanding at a later stage to maintenance and site survey activities.
neXat already has a growing portfolio within the maritime sector, which includes bringing better satellite connectivity to the commercial shipping industry and the private leisure boating industry. The ever-increasing demand for satellite solutions at sea is met with the neXat platform, a complete OSS/BSS, carrier-grade, fully redundant platform which allows operators to outsource satellite services and value-added services across the Maritime sector.
“neXat already has a deep understanding of the satellite technology and are well-known satellite service providers, which will help them go far as they enter the industry,” said Mario. “I’m excited to have joined the neXat team on this project and look forward to seeing what the future holds.”
