shipznet portfolio expands

Maritime GSM service provider bobz is expanding its shipznet product portfolio to include three additional offerings.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The first is a stand-alone version of its shipznet Router RA300, based on LTE technology and capable of transmission speeds up to 300 Mbps. As a standalone (with antenna included) it will be available for use by companies that wish to use their own SIM cards.

A new shipznet router, equipped with four Ethernet connections and six SIM card slots sockets will be made available soon, while the company will also launch a new R300 router without the shipznet antenna as a separate device.

The new M300 hardware will continue to be distributed as an all-inclusive system with different data packages starting from 1 GB per month, and with Crew Hotspot functionality as an optional extra, bobz says.

The company will also launch a range of higher data offerings in Q4 2016, including packages up to 200 GB per month.

"Neither high investment cost not surprises through hidden roaming cost are involved in using shipznet, which is especially appreciated by our customers,” said Claudia Bobzin, managing director of bobz GmbH.

The company says that shipznet has now been rolled out on “several hundred ships” and has been installed within a range of different communications configurations, including integration with simple e-mail PC applications in combination with a FleetBroadband system, but also linked with communication servers, such as Dualog, iFusion (Inmarsat), XChange (Marlink) or Nimbus (Globecomm).{/mprestriction}
