IEC Telecom and GTMaritime have partnered to deliver two vital services over one company antenna, with minimal bandwidth requirements. The connectivity package, MarineStar E-Lite, provides voice and data services that are optimised for smaller vessels.
Thuraya has launched its web-based SatTrack maritime tracking and monitoring service in partnership with FrontM, a developer of software applications.
The advancement of digitalisation is now bringing benefits to businesses in hard-to-reach locations, transforming the way they operate and making life easier for customers in remote areas inadequately served by terrestrial networks.
Last month, IEC Telecom and Thuraya introduced Orion Edge V (“V” for virtual), a state-of-the-art satcom system which offers an affordable VSAT-like experience over compact hardware. Digitalisation, previously reserved for large vessels, is now available for smaller crafts.
IEC Telecom has joined forces with Thuraya to bring affordable quality satcom technology to smaller vessels that have limited onboard space. Orion Edge V enables a VSAT-like communications experience over L-band with access to a cloud-based system offering a wide range of telecom services.
Thuraya has signed a partnership agreement with Telespazio, a joint venture between Leonardo (67 per cent) and Thales (33 per cent), to distribute its products and services worldwide.
Connectivity at sea has never been more important than during these difficult times. New regulations can be introduced at any moment and it is of great importance to ensure that this information is communicated to all marine sectors.
Thuraya has introduced a new maritime voice solution with advanced two-way tracking and monitoring capabilities to improve vessel tracking and monitoring, crew welfare, and voice communications.
Thuraya Telecommunications Company has announced a range of new smart solutions for the fast-growing Asia-Pacific (APAC) market including a VSAT+ maritime service and WE SAT – LTE broadband hotspot to enable smooth end to end data flow at sea and on land.
Digitalisation can offer vessel operators a competitive edge but maritime companies need to be aware of the potential risks and to put in place effective back-up and security systems to ensure they reap the benefits, says Nabil Ben Soussia, vice president – maritime, IEC Telecom Group.
