What do you need to be aware of?
Even though the antenna and plans are simple, there are several things you should be aware of, when considering Starlink:
- Handling the data-usage.
All Starlink plans have a data-cap. If you use more data than allocated, the system will either close down or you will be billed for overage. It is important to have clear plan for how to monitor and manage and possibly limit traffic.
- Handling multiple WAN sources.
We typically install Starlink on vessels that already have other forms of communication, such as VSAT and 4G. It is necessary to have equipment in place to handle these different inputs and preferably control them intelligently, so the combined connection is optimized. This is typically done by an SD-WAN solution.
- Consider your need for backup or supplement connections.
Starlink offers no SLA or guarantees on performance, bandwidth, uptime, pricing or terms. It's a take-it-or-leave-it solution and Starlink reserves the right to change everything with short or no notice.
This should be considered when vessels are increasingly more connected and ship optimization and business tools require an internet connection.
It means that a vessel's Satcom/4G connection is becomming increasingly critical infrastructure. If this is the case, you should carefully consider your options for backup and supplements to a Starlink connection.
