Speedcast serves this customer on a global scale, and the two companies have been partners in Brazil onboard this FPSO for over 5 years. The contract extension increases the throughput onboard and provides the option for new enhanced equipment installation as needed for maximised network efficiency.

"This customer is one of our most valued customers around the world and we are proud to extend our relationship with this leading operator in Brazil," said Andre Gustavo Sant Anna, SC Caprock's Brazil Country Manager. "This FPSO and deepwater field will be a significant project in Brazil for years to come as investment in the region continues to grow. We look forward to working closely with this customer to implement the enhanced service to meet their immediate needs, while continuously improving connectivity infrastructure to deliver the best communication solution possible."

These long-term and strategic customer relationships allow us to provide enhanced services and new technologies to meet their growing demands, including IT outsourcing, IoT, video surveillance/streaming and related analytics technology.
