Access Controller FB-10 upgraded

Livewire Connections has launched its latest software upgrade for the Access Controller FB-10, adding additional functionality to the communications management system.

This is the fourth major firmware upgrade since the unit's initial launch in 2009, and includes changes to Quality of Service (QoS) levels and full auto failover capabilities.

Bandwidth can be prioritised, and monitored to provide real time graphs/logs and data usage, and MAC address reservation has been improved to show leases, to display the current DHCP leases on the network.

Existing customers can upgrade to the new software version without charge, with approximately 400 vessels now equipped with the Access Controller FB-10.

“We are a proactive company, driven by our own technical capabilities and customer demand,” said David Walker, sales director for Livewire Connections.

“This latest upgrade is all part of the process Livewire Connections goes through to help keep our customers at the forefront with regards to managing their off-vessel connections.”

The software upgrade is now being rolled out and is available for existing customers to download from the Livewire website.
