The Power of Multicasting

IP-MobileCast delivers great content:​​

  • without using your ship’s onboard data plan

  • without slowing down the data speeds
    available onboard

How? By using multicasting to send the content to thousands of vessels at the same time, in the background.

unicast vs multicast

The old way...

Unicasting

Content is individually sent to each user on each vessel – each transmission requires a round trip to the cloud via a distant satellite, increasing billable data usage and burdening the satellite connection.

The innovative way...

IP-MobileCast

Content is multicast once to all subscribing vessels and stored onboard for latency-free access by up to 100 simultaneous users. Does not consume vessel’s data plan nor can it harm onboard data speeds.

So what does this all mean for you and your crews?

With mini-VSAT Broadband already providing satellite communications for your vessels and crew, it’s easy to add IP-MobileCast and the news, entertainment, training, and more that will make your fleet and ships an employer of choice for the best crews and officers.

"With IP-MobileCast, the crew experienced something they’ve never seen before: watching international football matches while at sea!”
