Marpoint Case Study: Golden Yachts

Marpoint 3G 4G

These days the most pressing concern of any yacht owner or guest is the quality of the internet on board. Despite massive strides in quality and coverage, it still remains the greatest headache for private and charter yachts, and having a flexible and reliable service is always a priority.

With so much choice on the market, here's one solution that made for a very happy IT manager responsible for the fleet of five Golden Yachts.   

 

The Problem:

Golden Yachts had difficulties accessing high speed Internet in remote locations and ports, which was causing problems for both quests and crew. They were in immediate need of high speed 3G/4G, and trustworthy routers to provide connectivity many miles off shore without hassle and interruption. 

The Solution:

Recognizing the client’s needs, Marpoint was able to provide an innovative and reliable solution using their MultiRouter Dual 3Gs/4Gs solution for superyachts:

This solution is suitable for superyachts and megayachts and consists of two SIM cards from the same or different providers allowing you to enjoy excellent coverage many miles off shore as well as in remote locations. You also have the option to manage any satellite provider (VSAT, FBB), allowing you to get the most out of the available bandwidth of each internet gateway.
