Tuesday 25 August 2020 | 14:24 CET | News
ST Engineering iDirect has announced that its long-term customer Paratus Telecom has deployed its iDirect modems with marine antenna from manufacturer and integrator KNS to provide connectivity to mining ships based off Guinea, West Africa. The vessels and crew require constant, reliable communications to keep in contact with headquarters on land, and with other vessels during operations at the Boffa port in Guinea, where 3G/4G connectivity is poor and internet services limited.
