Nelco gets in-flight, maritime connectivity licence from DoT

New Delhi: Tatanet Services, a wholly owned subsidiary of Nelco Limited, on Wednesday said it has recently obtained in-flight, maritime connectivity licence from Department of Telecommunications, a move that can improve business productivity for the airlines and shipping companies. "...the IFMC license will make it possible to have uninterrupted access to voice, data and video services while also travelling on aircrafts, sailing vessels, cruise liners etc in India, using satellite technology," Nelco Limited (NELCO) said in a statement.

This can help bring operational efficiencies to improve business productivity for the airlines and shipping companies, which were not so evolved until now, it added.

"Internet and voice communication while sailing or flying within Indian waters and airspace are important needs but not fulfilled so far due to regulatory restrictions," NELCO Managing Director and CEO P J Nath said.

The license for IFMC services (in-flight and maritime connectivity) by DoT will now make it possible for people to access high quality broadband internet services and make voice calls while flying in Indian airspace and sailing in Indian waters, in the same manner that they do while at home or office, Nath added.
