Hermann Lohmann Bereederungen moves to integrated comms system

German-based ship management company Hermann Lohmann Bereederungen (HLB) has signed a deal with NSSLGlobal to replace its legacy VSAT systems with NSSLGlobal’s FusionIP service, integrating both VSAT and 3G/4G cellular connectivity.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Already an NSSLGlobal customer since 2016, HLB will now replace the onboard communications systems on all of its existing maritime vessels with the new service, based on Cobham’s SAILOR 600 antenna systems. 

Within one single 60cm SAILOR dome, FusionIP integrates LTE and satellite broadband, allowing ships to automatically switch between 4G/3G and satellite networks using one antenna.

“We turned to NSSLGlobal to fully manage the communications aboard our fleet because we were convinced that NSSLGlobal’s solution/concept and service were right for our fleet,” said Hermann Lohmann, managing director of Hermann Lohmann Bereederungen.

“We opted for the renowned FusionIP service due to its compact hardware and flexible airtime concept. The fact the product also combines satellite broadband with a 3G/4G system within the same device, to enable automatic transition between cellular and satellite broadband connections, allows us to stay fully connected to our shipping networks at all times. This was a key factor in our decision-making process.”{/mprestriction}
