Houston, Texas – November 3, 2015 – ITC G lobal, a leading provider in satellite communications to remote and harsh environments, today announced that they will be unveiling ITC Crew LIVE , their new comprehensive crew welfare solution leveraging the leading in-flight service entertainment technology, at OilComm 2015. ITC Crew LIVE, which stands for LiveTV, Internet, Video and E -learning, will provide a new level of connectivity to offshore crews through reliable wireless access for voice, Internet and content streaming.
Whereas other crew welfare systems reside on the corporate network, ITC Crew LIVE offers owners and operators a turnkey solution for crew welfare that stands apart from the operational platform and is supported by its own dedicated satellite equipment and bandwidth. This ensures that business and personal use are kept entirely separate to provide the best user experience and offers added security, as well a redundant backup to the corporate network. The dedicated service offers download speeds up to 10 Mbps and upload speeds between 1 Mbps and 2 Mbps globally.
Offshore crews are significantly underserved with communications resources for off-hours or recreational Internet use. They are limited to small Wi-Fi access points operating on the corporate network or direct to home systems deployed on near shore assets in certain regions. Additionally, platform owners and operators are sensitive to an increasing millennial-aged workforce that has grown to expect ubiquitous connectivity. ITC Global demonstrations and information will be available for the media at OilComm 2015.
