Virtualised comms management system launched by NSSLGlobal

Maritime satcom provider NSSLGlobal has launched Cruise Control+, a new virtual platform designed to integrate management of all aspects of voice and data communications, as well as IT services, on board vessels.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The technology can also be used for remote deployment and delivery of new value-added services as well as the hosting of customer applications, whilst also providing an option for users to outsource their onboard IT services through a ‘virtual appliance’ capability.

“Our new virtualised platform represents a key strategic milestone for NSSLGlobal, as we’re able to offer a cost-effective, single-server solution for seamless management of communication and IT services to our maritime customers around the globe,” said Sally-Anne Ray, CEO, NSSLGlobal.

The Cruise Control+ unit is installed locally on board a vessel and can be used to manage multiple onboard networks, control automatic beam switching and out of bandwidth management, and provide an integrated SIP PBX.

Security features include a split VLAN network for separation of corporate, crew and vendor networks; traffic prioritisation; firewall controls and an optional embedded VPN service.

NSSLGlobal’s crew UNITE internet portal and CrewVision TV and movie entertainment service are also integrated into the system, while a new virtual machine feature allows users to opt for a range of managed IT packages, including a Unified Threat Management service, a Windows 2016 server system, and a managed antivirus offering, all optimised to work over a satellite connection.{/mprestriction}
