Taiwan's Chunghwa Telecom has teamed up with RR Media to offer mobile satellite services for maritime and land customers.

The operator will work with RR Media's mobile satellite services division to provide services bundled with a range of VAS and built-in management and control toolsets.

The Inmarsat-based satellite services will be offered on both a post-paid and pre-paid basis that can be combined based on a ship or organization's needs.

“With RR Media, we're able to provide tailored VNO-like services, enabling local and international shipping companies and others to monitor, manage and control their entire fleet as well as empower their own users in the service chain,” Chunghwa managing director of satellite business Ching-Tsung Chang said.

“Moreover, we can offer a range of powerful value added services, such as remote log-in and a smart control box, integrated into the core system. We're committed to offering a local and friendly satellite mobile service to any user who needs communication at sea or on land.”

RR Media is primarily a digital media services company. Subsidiary RRsat Global has six teleports in Israel, the USA and Europe as well as 20 partner teleports.
