LinkScape announced a strategic partnership with KNS, the worldwide designer and manufacturer of high-grade antennas.

“Timing could not be better. We have completed enhancements to our UltraVSAT modem platform and, combining this with KNS’s reputation in manufacturing the most advanced antennas on the market, our global Ku and C Band VSAT networks are now stronger than ever,” LinkScape vice president of business development David Horacek said in a statement.

This new combination allows for a two-cable installation with a single 1U below-deck unit with no other external components and provides shared and dedicated bandwidth for yachts, commercial vessels and cruise ships, the companies said.

“We’re constantly finding new ways to improve connectivity at sea. We’re delighted to be teaming up with the market leader when it comes to delivering the fastest and most reliable Internet service,” KNS international sales director Noah Chung said in a statement.
