Radio Hollands extends VSAT Coverage above Northern Europe

Ship owners choosing the Northern Sea Route now have additional coverage from Kara Sea to Pacific Ocean

Radio Holland is the first provider who expanded its Global Ku-band VSAT network with additional coverage above Northern Europe/Russia. Recently, the Yamal 402 Northern beam has been added to the Radio Holland Global VSAT Network.

With this extra beam Radio Holland offers improved coverage for its customers sailing from the Kara Sea to the Pacific Ocean. At this point of time, parts are free of ice for only two months per year. It is expected that the Northern Sea Route will be used as a new shipping route. Radio Holland supports customers with added coverage to their Global VSAT Network in the Norwegian-, Barents-, and Kara Sea.

The VSAT network of Radio Holland provides reliable communication connections for crew, captain and other users on board. The extension of Radio Holland’s VSAT coverage in combination with its portfolio of value added services offers ship owners the possibility for a total satellite communication solution. Radio Holland’s broadband communication solution utilizes the iDirect Evolution platform and includes Service Level Agreements, 24/7 Support and automatic beam switching.

Always there. Everywhere.
