CSnet's Offshore Communications Backbone (OCB) consists of a network of power and fibre optic cables and sensor ports connected to a surface communications buoy.
The company said that its MCS Ocean Net buoy will serve as the command, control and data backhaul for CSnet's OCB, providing reliable data transmission of up to 2 Mbps in high seas and up to 2 kW of power to the sea floor.
'This agreement enables our customers to benefit from the combined expertise of two industry leaders - CSnet in the development of large-scale, offshore communications backbones, and MCS with more than a decade of experience in autonomous marine communications,' said Rick Simonian, president of Maritime Communication Services.
