Offshore and Maritime Internet access challenges

containership background


The maritime sector has an increasing need for internet access

For internal systems, operations, asset management and last but not least staff. All having high wishes for performance and uptime.

For a clear overview we are using the following segmentation:

1. Vessel as a workplace

Most shipping companies only use satellite equipment for the communication needs of crew and operations. This is pre-eminently useful on the open sea but is not always cost efficient and not really ‘’always on’’.

These solutions will create long distance 4G, by amplifying the signal up to 70 km from the coast! Of course, the SIM has worldwide coverage and If desired, we can also provide the combination with routers and even satellite for the optimum use internet access, anywhere in the world.

2. Crew

Crew members, technical & installation personnel, project teams and executives travel the world and upon arrival at their destination are frequently confronted with mobile data & connectivity issues. Local Wi-Fi networks simply aren’t available, secure or sufficient. Or they cannot be used due to the security policies of your own or the client company.

Both onboard as while travelling we solve with our Crew connect portfolio offering high quality 4G & 5G LTE offering reliable and cost-effective access to the internet. Onboard and while travelling globally, and the eSIM can be simply activated by using the QR Code.

3. Asset tracking

Get real-time insight into the location of your freight, containers and other expensive properties. You can use this information to optimize the logistics process or to insure your cargo. Whatever your exact application is. With our solutions, you realize real-time insight. Centralized. Wherever in the world, your assets are located.

4. Maritime Analytics

The shipping industry is undertaking major challenges. Think of growing pressure on environment, increasing competition from all over the world and ever-changing regulations. This requires smart decision-making from vessel builders and owners. The global production industry has similar challenges and is harvesting data coming from their factories to support decision-making. These technologies have proven to be very successful in maintaining and improving their competitive position as well increase the productivity and availability of their most valuable assets.

Smart Vessel Optimizer is utilizing the same industrial hardware and software solutions. But then redesigned for maritime operations to support vessel owners and builders. Unlocking a continuous string of opportunities to improve operations and fleet optimization. 

5. Long distance 4G | 5G

A great challenge at sea? The mobile connection between the cell tower and your ship will in practice have a range of approximately 8 Km from the coast. If you want to maintain the connection to the 4G network on the open sea for a longer range, you can. Make use of our Long Distance 4G solution whereby you are provided with the necessary hardware such as antenna and or amplifier in addition to the SIM with worldwide coverage for ultimate maritime internet.

More about the Long range 4G LTE broadband Antenna…..

The antenna system provides a diversity function for better connectivity and higher speed via LTE networks. Optimization for long-range access will provide excellent connectivity being offshore with high data speed and throughput. The full usability is given by a one-cable solution, connecting the antenna.

The antenna offers up to 150 Mbit/s download and up to 50 Mbit/s upload speed (upon availability by the 4G 5G connection)

Advantages Antenna set up

  • Easy to install – single-wire installation using just one standard coaxial cable with 75 Ohm-F- or 50 Ohm N-Connectors
  • No extra cable, Lightweight Diversity- and MIMO-Antenna
  • High Gain and Ultra-wide broadband antenna elements
  • Low power consumption

More about eSIM (QR Code)……

We supply an online eSIM management dashboard in which you can create new subscriptions for special regions and with custom limits. If an employee is planning on an overseas trip, you can choose a fitting subscription and create a custom QR-code for this employee. When the employee scans this QR-code the new subscription will be activated. In the portal, you’ll keep access to usage information and receive a composite invoice of all active subscriptions or data used.
