Harris CapRock supplies advanced connectivity to Star Cruises' fleet

Harris CapRock supplies advanced connectivity to Star Cruises' fleet

Genting Hong Kong has selected Harris CapRock Communications (HCC) to transform communication services onboard Star Cruises’ fleet of six ships.

Harris CapRock will use its advanced technologies and equipment to boost bandwidth nearly 300% and increase internet speed onboard Superstar Virgo, Superstar Gemini, Superstar Libra, Superstar Aquarius, Star Pisces and Taipan ships.

The uncontended network ensures access to committed bandwidth levels at all times, providing an innovation over conventional TDMA networks.

Star Cruises recognizes and caters to the unique needs of guests from the Asia Pacific region.  For example, internet users in China spend five to six more hours online per week than Americans and an average of almost 90 minutes per day on social networks.*  With this enterprising project, Star Cruises will satisfy guests’ who desire premium connectivity and accompanying services.
