Maritime VSAT ApplicationsThere are many advantages of Maritime VSAT from atrexx for your on-board communication; 2way2sat Broadband Maritime VSAT services can improve operational efficiency and lower costs. When expanding the corporate network to all of the company?s vessels in a fleet, a ship becomes a mobile business entity - not a detached part of the business that only comes alive when back in port.
Office at Sea
When a corporate company network is interconnected with ships, a ship then becomes an office at sea, linked up to the headquarters and other vessels. It allows to communicate and distribute plans, take important decisions and, handle administrative tasks, place orders and sell directly from your ship. Communication from shore to ship and vice versa is exchanged as secure data from end to end, protected by VPN (Virtual Private Network) technology.
Retention of skilled personnel is a serious issue. 2way2sat Broadband Maritime VSAT allows to increase crew welfare by providing more of the home comforts while at sea: Fixed priced satellite links make calling home very affordable - typically for the cost of a local landline call. Crew members can phone their loved ones as regularly as they would do while on shore. With wireless access in cabin, they will enjoy privacy. They also have the opportunity to use the Internet for information, entertainment, and communication. The crew members will be overjoyed with the service and will confirm that their families are much happier, because they can talk freely every night no matter where they are out at sea.
2way2sat Broadband Maritime VSAT makes possible e-learning and updated training for the crew members in charge of ship maintenance. In case of a technical problem at sea, it allows the transmission of high resolution photographs in support of maintenance, support and procurement operations thereby eliminating the need for extensive descriptive text in reports.
A vessel often no longer needs to call at a port when a crew member needs a doctor. With satellite video link, a shipping company can provide a doctor from onshore for all their vessels. This is a massive improvement over the traditional ways of dealing with medical urgencies whilst at sea and has a major impact on the "peace of mind" of the crew and their families.
Vessels searching for diamonds on the sea ground have a surveillance crew onboard that prevents thefts of the precious stones. In order to avoid collusion of the workforce and their supervision crew constant video surveillance is recommended. Video surveillance and video conferencing are among the video applications enabled by 2way2sat Broadband Maritime VSAT.
