Japanese shipowner MOL will use Marlink’s hybrid connectivity tools to evaluate its sustainability and crew strategies.

Marlink will deploy its hybrid connectivity solutions on selected MOL operated vessels, integrating Starlink LEO with its highly reliable Sealink GEO VSAT service and its digital platform.

Designed to provide a reliable Committed Information Rate (CIR) in combination with Maximum Information Rate (MIR) performance, Starlink’s connectivity will form an integral part of this hybrid solution. 

Completed with an L-band backup solution, the Marlink network will be linked with Marlink’s network management platform, XChange and advanced cyber threat detection, including Security Operation Center as a service. 

XChange will include the latest software-defined (SD-WAN) technology to optimise the routing of MOL’s applications.

With more than 130 years of operational experience, MOL is among the world’s leading shipping companies.

Marlink’s formation with Starlink as a hybrid network provided to MOL is expected to improve user experience, application performance, and security. 

MOL will benefit from additional managed services including global 24/7 support ensuring the smooth integration of the connectivity into MOL’s business operations.

Tore Morten Olsen, President, Maritime, Marlink said: ”This pilot will demonstrate the unique user experience of high speed, low latency connectivity working alongside our highly reliable GEO VSAT services, enabling shipowners to drive operational efficiency and enhance crew welfare.”
