Global Eagle Makes Debut at Seatrade Cruise Global
13 Mar, 2017
Global Eagle Entertainment Inc. will showcase its broad platform of satellite connectivity, content solutions and capabilities for the cruise industry at Seatrade Cruise Global in Fort Lauderdale next week.
The company’s presence at the Seatrade show includes EMC, which was acquired in July 2016. The combined company is being rebranded as Global Eagle to reflect its new identity as the world’s largest provider of connectivity and content for rapidly growing mobility satellite markets, including aviation, maritime and land-based locations.
“The cohesive Global Eagle brand identity communicates this strength and our worldwide reach, while speaking to our vision, agility in the marketplace, collaborative style and trusted expertise,” said Ole Kristian Sivertsen, president of Global Eagle’s cruise, ferry and yacht services. “The combination of the legacy companies creates a true powerhouse of connectivity and content that will give today’s cruising passengers a quality of experience second to none.”
At Seatrade 2017, Global Eagle will introduce its next-generation SpeedNet™ technology that delivers higher-speed Wi-Fi downloads and a new satellite portal that will enable cruise lines to stream internet and entertainment choices directly to passengers’ own mobile devices anywhere on the ship. The company will also unveil the industry’s broadest selection of live TV programming for cruise ships.
“Our vision at Global Eagle is to reach hundreds of millions of people on the move around the world with a Wi-Fi and entertainment experience that is equivalent to what they get at their homes or offices,” said Avellan. “To that end, we are boosting our satellite capacity and bringing to market a portfolio of exclusive solutions, such as our patented SpeedNet high-speed browsing technology and first-class entertainment content. We are also introducing a new Wi-Fi and entertainment portal that will enhance the user experience and provide revenue opportunities for our cruise ship customers.”
