TAMPA, Fla., June 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RedCell Technologies applauds Silversea Cruise Line for its introduction of the cruise industry's first streaming media platform for mobile devices. The new service offering, announced today by Silversea, is made possible in part by the wireless LAN solution engineered by RedCell Technologies.

"We are thrilled to be a part of this exciting new offering," said Tennyson LaJeunesse, Chief Technology Officer, RedCell Technologies. "When we first partnered with Silversea two years ago, our goal was to ensure that passengers had flawless wireless access throughout each of Silversea's ships. The immense success of that project created a new vision in which an array of streaming media services could be delivered to any mobile device. Today's announcement represents the first tangible result of that vision."

RedCell Technologies solved a fundamental WLAN problem plaguing the cruise industry, thus enabling stem-to-stern wireless connectivity and the capacity to support high-bandwidth mobile applications. Using technology from Aruba Networks and with support from Harbour Marine Systems, RedCell Technologies designed and deployed world-class wireless LANs across Silversea's fleet of luxury cruise ships.

That technology serves as the platform for Silversea's new service, which gives passengers complimentary access to an extensive library of feature-length Hollywood titles provided by Swank Motion Pictures. Onboard live television and informational channels are also available via the streaming platform. Passengers can enjoy this amenity on any device from any location on the ship.

"RedCell Technologies and Aruba Networks have worked with us to create that solid foundation of wireless distribution in the hostile steel maze of passenger cruise vessels," said Jason Cohn, Director of IT Infrastructure, Silversea Cruise Line. "We are extremely proud of what we have accomplished to date, but more proud of the position we've put ourselves in. Full-feature video streaming is just the tip of the iceberg for us. The fact that we can do it better than any of our competitors — really anybody in the industry at the moment — will just drive our desire to put out even better services next."

The streaming video service is now available on the Silver Cloud. Silversea intends to roll this system out to four additional vessels by the end of 2013: Silver Shadow, Silver Whisper, Silver Wind and Silver Galapagos.
