Aalesund Data to supply data optimisation to Farstad

Farstad Shipping ASA has agreed a deal with Norwegian company Aalesund Data for the delivery of the Itrust Bandwidth Optimizer (IBO) system to its fleet of over 50 ships.

The IBO was first developed by Aalesund Data in 2008, and has been released as a number of different versions since that time. The technology is used to optimise data communication to vessels through satellite or mobile systems.

Aalesund Data says that it worked with Farstad to test and customise the IBO solution that will be delivered, with IBOv4 to be supplied.

Version 4 is offered as a virtual system, meaning that deployment and configuration can be completed in a very short period of time.

Delivery of the units is scheduled to take place over the next twelve months, ending in June 2013.

“This is an important contract for us, and we are proud that Farstad Shipping ASA selects our solution,” said Roar Pedersen, general manager, Aalesund Data. “It confirms our expertise in the area of maritime communications.”
