Zwana approved as FX NSD

Inmarsat has approved the Zwana communications management system from Cyprus-based One Net for use as a Network Service Device (NSD) with the satellite operator’s Fleet Xpress (FX) product, to reduce the amount of hardware required when implementing the services side by side.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}One Net already offered a combined vessel server, Unified Threat Management and crew services hardware system through its Zwana ZS3 unit, however the new Zwana ZS4 has been approved by Inmarsat to run NSD v1.5 software, and to receive remote upgrades to future softNSD versions.

The hardware unit includes an 8 Core Intel Xeon CPU and four solid state disks of up to 1TB each.

“This integration demonstrates One Net’s strength and speed at integrating new technologies, and reaffirms its status as one of the leading innovative players in the maritime industry,” said Ronald Spithout, president, Inmarsat Maritime.

“Fully integrating the software element of the Network Service Device into the Zwana platform will remove hardware from the below deck rack and will allow One Net to develop their own value added solutions for the rapidly growing market for onboard applications evidenced by the dramatic growth in Fleet Xpress installations over the last year.”

One Net says it will now include the Zwana ZS4 with all future Fleet Xpress installations, and will offer other providers the opportunity to implement the unit alongside their own FX services.{/mprestriction}
