Tampnet and Globalgig have completed testing and reached an agreement whereby access to the Tampnet’s network will be available through Globalgig’s patented multi-IMSI SIM.
Globalgig provides wireless service for enterprise connectivity, SD-WAN and IOT applications globally in 200+countries on one SIM card. This partnership arrangement will create a single SIM that works both onshore and offshore.
Tampnet operates the largest offshore high-capacity communication network in the world – in the North Sea and the Gulf of Mexico – serving more than 350 oil and gas platforms, floating production storage and offloading vessels (FPSOs) and exploration rigs.
This agreement expands Tampnet’s ability to provide services globally, with the Globalgig SIM, to the oilfield services industry, equipment manufacturers and maritime markets including cruise ships, tankers and fishing vessels.
“Our agreement with Globalgig is further evidence of our expansion and growth as we develop key partnerships to fill the capacity on our advanced LTE network,” said Helge Svensson, CEO of Tampnet. “Seamless mobility onshore and offshore provides the foundation in an ever-expanding ecosystem of solutions.”
“The impact of this agreement is significant in that Globalgig’s SIM card can be leveraged for offshore use in addition to providing connectivity for onshore enterprise applications such as SD-WAN and IoT,” said Ernest Cunningham, CEO of Globalgig. “For the first time, our partners and customers can easily extend their reach to offshore locations. A ship and its crew can leave England, travel across the North Sea to Norway and stay connected in port and at sea with high speed LTE.”
