Times change, challenges remain
The maritime sector faces numerous challenges. In addition to managing the fallout of the global economic crisis, you need to operate in some of the most remote places on earth. Vessel safety, navigation, weather and crew welfare all impact your ability to operate efficiently.
There are also stringent regulations to meet. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) demands that the latest available navigational changes and admiralty updates are implemented, while maximizing fuel efficiency and ensuring no negative impact on crew or vessel safety.
technology transforming maritime communications
To help you overcome these challenges, we have developed a state-of-the-art maritime communications technology suite. It meets industry requirements, such as IMO ECDIS compliance, which demands that vessels always possess the very latest navigational charts and weather updates.
Safety issues and regulatory compliance require that ships are in contact with on-shore headquarters as much as possible. Historically, maritime communications were powered by restrictive L-Band frequency connections. Today, we help vessels stay in touch using next-generation very small aperture terminal (VSAT) satellite technology. VSAT delivers stable, high-quality broadband-speed network access to vessels at sea. In addition, it provides connectivity to our global MPLS IP VPN so that your ships can be integrated into the corporate network.
This powerful communications infrastructure fulfills essential navigational, safety and compliance requirements. Critical vessel management tasks can be performed from shore, without the need to have specialists on board. You also benefit from additional voice and data transmission capacity to improve the quality of life for all your crew members.
