The way the system works is that the ships' operators usually buy there own compatible on-board equipment and pay for the bandwidth they will use in their first year of operations. Equipment is most conveniently purchased through CommSystems, the local SeaTel distributer who also are under contract to maintain the ships' and shore equipment.Karl Kapusta of CommSystems ( can provide a quotation for the required equipment and installation. Kevin Walsh ( here at SIO can provide details on the networking aspects of HiSeasNet. When a schedule for the installation is determined, it is a good idea to make sure Kevin knows when things are targeted for install. This will allow everyone to coordinate the installation of the gear on the ship with the networking at the earth station and the ship's institution's campus.
