Starlink Maritime Service on MV “Sea Foam” 2022

MV Sea Foam-2022

The Sea Foam project was our first test with the Starlink Maritime service. Customer was unhappy with the Inmarsat FX system. Monthly costs where high and service was exceptionally slow.

Customer was interested in trying out the new Starlink options. We designed a new network to completely replace the Inmarsat FX system.

Utilizing a Port and STBD Starlink high performance antennas, we are utilizing a unique configuration for Speed Fusion bonding and redundancy.

This has provided an unbreakable link to the broadband world.

Each crew member on average is given 1-2 GB of data per day for personal use.

The Corporate network and its services running all Office 365 services has been a great addition to the vessel with lots of speed and reliability never seen before offshore. This New Starlink Maritime Integration was a complete success.

Monthly Cost Estimates

DigiDom LLC actively manages the vessels Starlink Maritime Service to best meet the need of the vessels project.

If the vessel is to remain in port, we switch the service to save the vessel in monthly costs.

When vessel go offshore, we chose the right service to meet vessels needs.
