MTN, DSI Complete Internet Cafe Installation

Maritime Telecommunications Network (MTN) has installed Carnival Cruise Lines' first Internet Cafe on the Carnival Triumph. The Internet Cafe unites Digital Seas International's (DSI) Internet product with the latest in highspeed Internet satellite communications from MTN. Carnival's 14 other Fun Ships are expected to have Internet Cafes installed by the end of the year.

MTN allows for satellite delivery of the Internet for the cruise lines and the U.S. Navy by providing ShipNet, an asymmetric Internet service, which delivers high-speed connectivity and cost-effective use of satellite space.

This technology is making MTN one of the largest Internet service providers (ISP) in the maritime industry. Dave Kagan, president of ATC Teleports and MTN said, "These new Internet Cafes are a really exciting development for the cruise line industry, and for MTN. Our cruise line customers can now deliver all the latest services and entertainment their guests are requesting and we are taking a leadership role in making it possible for Carnival."
