Navarino has announced that its Infinity Cube bandwidth management solution has been installed on its first vessel, Eletson’s Mt Kinaros.

Officially launched last month, Infinity Cube works with existing onboard satellite systems to manage web connectivity, while providing functions such as firewalling and routing, advanced compression, file synchronisation, email and VoIP communication.

Eletson’s fleet of 31 vessels operates FleetBroadband, using Infinity to share a 6 GB SCAP plan with crew members. WiFi can be accessed in designated areas on the accommodation decks via personal devices.

“For the Kinaros we chose the Cube chiefly because we wanted a system that provides full redundancy along with all the Infinity features we use across our fleet,” said Michalis Kantartzoglou, ICT administrator at Eletson.

“The redundancy of Infinity Cube was thoroughly tested in the Navarino offices, to the extent that we even unplugged the power during operation to ensure that no data loss occurred. We really like the online management the Cube gives us over all software and virtual machines on board.”

“Currently we have three virtual machines, namely a domain controller, an application server that acts as a remote desktop, and Freenas for back up purposes, while all other clients are dummy clients. We are very satisfied with our choice of the Cube and the new possibilities it allows our IT department.”

Using Infinity Cube, customers can create a number of their own virtual machines, controlling features such as hard disk size and RAM, and uploading software from a single centralised source.

Navarino says this is a major advantage for IT departments, as computers on board no longer have to be preloaded with software, and updates can be remotely uploaded from shore and distributed from the Cube.
