MTN Communications, a global provider of communications and content services for maritime and remote locations, unveiled the MTN “Maestro” – a powerful solution that optimizes yacht bandwidth by 40 percent. The solution responds to the rise in a few significant trends in the broadband market today - multiple device ownership, need to have on-the-go access to data both on business and personal travel and the consumption of rich media on data networks. These factors require both high-speed data and high quality of content delivery regardless of the subscriber's location and travel itinerary.
According to MTN, the world's growing demand for bandwidth and the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) movement has set high expectations when it comes to the communications and content services available to yacht owners, captains, electronic technical officers (ETOs), guests and crew.
MTN's “Maestro” meets the need to deliver highest-quality performance that is also easy to manage and flexible to new users and changing itineraries, and that which also supports the latest applications. The end-to-end solution that combines multiple networks through one provider in one platform leveraging MTN worldwide network operations and support centers delivers the following benefits:
Maximized Performance: The seamless connectivity of multiple networks in one platform provides faster response times of page loads, downloads and quality streaming with up to 40 percent more efficiency.
