Paul Gauguin selects MCP for cellular service

Paul Gauguin selects MCP for cellular service
Maritime Communications Partner reached an agreement with Paul Gauguin Cruises to provide GSM, CDMA, GPRS, PDSN and CrewSIM services on Paul Gauguin and any vessels that may be added to the fleet.  

The delivery includes the removal of the existing network equipment and re-installation of new equipment, as well as services, engineering and product management, network improvement design, system integration and on-going network operations.

‘One of the main criteria for MCP to secure the contract was their proven ability to complete the change while the ship was still in operation and very quickly bring the vessel back online with minimal guest disruption,’ said Richard Bailey, president and ceo of Paul Gauguin Cruises.

‘We are very pleased to be able to bring such a fine luxury cruise ship into the MCP family of vessels,’ said Fred Sorensen, md for MCP in the Americas, adding that the company aims to continue building market share in the US.
