Navarino launches GSM Connect

Navarino has launched a new GSM service for maritime, offering speeds of up to 100Mbps.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}GSM Connect delivers a high-bandwidth mobile data-only service to vessels, enabling for reliable and cost-effective global connectivity. The near-shore service allows for an alternative communication solution whilst vessels are sailing close to the coastline, or in anchorage and during ship operations in ports.

Vessel business connectivity, IoT applications, remote IT connectivity and optional crew welfare can be enhanced by download speeds of up to 100Mbps depending on the mobile carrier’s network. Service can deliver an LTE/4G/3G signal up to several kilometres offshore line of sight, which depends on the vessel’s position and the distance between the vessel’s antenna and the cellular antenna location ashore.

GSM Connect is a complete end-to-end solution providing hardware, network access, and management tools. The main component of the solution is a 3-Modem eSIM router, which ensures global compatibility with LTE/4G/3G networks. eSIM architecture allows GSM Connect solution to provide access to mobile local networks around the world without the need to use and manage physical SIM cards. The Multi-modem, multi-IMSI eSIM router with network agnostic, global cellular connectivity provides access to 20+ eSIMs from leading LTE carriers around the globe.{/mprestriction}

  • shipznet RG 300 facilitates remote assistance from service experts

    A new high-speed mobile broadband service for vessels, the RG (remote guidance) 300 is delivering remote guidance and mobile network coverage to facilitate cost-efficient and safe service missions onboard vessels.

    shipznet RG 300 is a mobile 4G/LTE solution with 300 Mbit/sec and coverage up to 60km ship to shore. It has been specifically developed for maritime use. The connectivity provided by RG 300 allows the exchange of photos, videos, technical drawings or to retrieve spare part catalogues. Direct video conferencing with qualified personnel is also possible.

    Using the shipznet solution, service employees are able to use mobile broadband connectivity in the engine room via mobile phone, tablet, laptop, or any mobile device. This can significantly shorten the on-site service calls as employees do not have to be on deck to use their mobile phones for finding the answers to technical questions they have.

    According to shipznet, waiting time for feedback, because no specialist is available in the office, should not be underestimated. shipznet RG 300 enables remote communication by specialists in the headquarters. This means that experts do not always have to be present for the service operations on site. According to shipznet, experts are expensive and difficult to obtain and in many cases service employees are “instructed” remotely by the experts.

    The system enables service staff to operate far inside the ship while being connected to remote experts and engineers on shore.  This is especially important in today’s current climate with COVID-19 affecting business as usual. With service travels currently limited or impossible due to health concerns, shipznet RG 300 service experts can help remotely look deep inside a ship without travelling. 

    shipnetz’s RG 300 solution is currently in use at some large service companies. It is delivered in a small suitcase with handy size format. The construction of the 4G / LTE antenna with a range of up to 60km ship to shore and the router with 300 Mbit / sec. is possible within 15 minutes, according to shipznet.

    The purchase of the shipznet RG 300 will reportedly pay for itself after a single service call.
