Turkish shipping and container company, Arkas Line (part of Arkas Holding), has agreed a deal with Orange Business Services to implement a hybrid comms network, including Orange’s communications management platform Maritime Connect and associated security services.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The system will be deployed across the Arkas fleet and its international offices, with the service covered by SLAs (service level agreements) and with global helpdesk support. 

The Orange Business Services hybrid network will incorporate terrestrial and satellite connectivity, managed security and business VPN internet to connect the 11 vessels and 25 land-based sites.

The on-board networks, connected via Maritime Connect, will be integrated into Arkas’ corporate network on shore to enable access to applications such as maintenance software, real-time reports, databases, e-mail, internet and VoIP.

New real-time services like geolocation for the company’s vessels, transmission of electronic data on the status of the fleet and monitoring of consumables on each vessel will additionally be introduced.

“At Arkas, our objective was to find a solution with a powerful communications infrastructure integrating our fleet of vessels into the corporate network and to improve overall operational efficiency,” said Mert Oruz, CIO, Arkas Holding.

“Through this digital transformation, we have achieved higher service quality levels by using advanced technology to improve operational readiness and provide better end-user experience for our employees. The vessels are also better equipped to manage safety issues and ensure regulatory compliance, in close contact with the headquarters, quickly and effectively.”{/mprestriction}
