The device has been designed for use alongside current FleetBroadband terminals, and enables users to extend the single voice capability, upgrading from just one phone call to support eight concurrent phone calls.
This is achieved without the need for any further equipment, beyond the Vocality device, and can be used with standard off-the-shelf analogue phones.
BASICS Multivoice for FleetBroadband can be connected to a PBX onboard a ship, or can have up to eight regular analogue phone handsets directly connected.
Vocality says it will be working with existing maritime distribution partners and service providers to connect to their own crew calling packages where possible.
The units will be operational upon launch of the service in Q2 2012.
