Superyacht communications provider launches new tech at MYS

Communications provider OmniAccess says it will share plans for its nextGen fusion connectivity solution at the 2022 Monaco Yacht Show.

It says nextGen fusion is a new way of delivering connectivity by bringing together the full potential of VSAT, 4G, 5G and LEO services. By leveraging SD-WAN (Software-defined Wide Area Network) technology, all these connections can be used simultaneously without having to choose between one or the other.

The system is enabled by the company’s proprietary onboard traffic management and cybersecurity platform (unity), which orchestrates traffic through the different sources of connectivity available, depending on the onboard users, the applications they use, and the quality of service of the connectivity available.

“Our platform will seamlessly combine the dedicated and always available bandwidth of VSAT with lower latency higher speed cellular data where available,” says Carlos Carbajal, CEO of OmniAccess. “nextGen fusion will also integrate LEO services such as Starlink and Oneweb to provide a fully managed service that delivers a flawless onboard experience.”

OmniAccess will launch the new service at Monaco Yacht Show (28 September-1 October) and make it available to clients across Europe within Q4 of 2022. Further territories and connectivity services will be added in due course.

Previously, the British Antarctic Survey (main picture) selected OmniAccess to provide VSAT services. With more than 400 staff, it operates five research stations, two ships and five aircrafts in and around Antarctica. British Antarctic Survey selected OmniAccess to provide VSAT communications for four of its Antarctic Bases and three research vessels.
