AST introduces new services for real-time data management

Global innovator of intelligent remote satellite communication solutions, AST, has announced the official release of INTEGRA See+ and INTEGRA Control Lite, which offer real-time visibility and application control for satellite communications.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} The two new services will provide customers with a flexible and cost-effective way to view, restrict, block and report on applications used over their satellite connection.

INTEGRA See+ is an enhancement of the existing INTEGRA See service which gives customers a breakdown of their traffic by application category and the top 10 individual applications used for each of their AST services during the current month. The new Integra See+ service now also gives customers the ability to drill down into each category to view individual application usage over a 3 month period, providing increased visibility and intelligence on usage patterns.

INTEGRA Control Lite will offer customers alerting capabilities for the whole service as well as at individual application categories level, allowing customers to accurately and automatically monitor usage and be alerted as defined thresholds are crossed. This gives a previously unavailable layer of proactive intelligence. A user is also able to block the service or category once a threshold is reached, giving a greater level of risk mitigation against excessive usage – all in real time and without needing to process Call Data Records (CDRs).

AST Group managing director, Gregory Darling commented: “Working closely with our customers provides us with valuable insight into their operational needs and allows us to develop empowering solutions designed to increase efficiency and enhance crew welfare whilst saving costs”.

INTEGRA See+ and INTEGRA Control Lite operate over AST’s INTEGRA Network, a next-generation ground network that delivers reliable and secure end-to-end connectivity, optimised performance and includes AST’s cybersecurity solution, INTEGRA CyberShield. The INTEGRA Network supports connectivity to any satellite IP network and communications equipment and currently connects to the satellite networks of Inmarsat, Iridium, Thuraya and VSAT services. {/mprestriction}

  • StratumFive launches collaborative workspace

    StratumFive has launched Podium, a collaborative workspace that connects applications, data, and people, across the maritime community.

    Podium connects any data source or third party application and integrates them within its timeline architecture. Users can quickly visualise correlated data streams in an agile dashboard environment, transforming operational decision-making, in a flexible and collaborative workspace.

    Powerful features and configurability allow users across an enterprise to easily build their own dashboards, customised data mapping, interactive displays and alerts, from any location. This enables owners, operators and managers to streamline and standardise the data they use, whilst reducing costs by discarding duplicate data sets.

    Podium ingests, unifies and visualises billions of data points and scales to accommodate user demands and data volumes, whilst maintaining complete consistency in terms of output for all users.

    In addition, the Podium partnership program will enable start-ups and existing digital providers to expand their maritime presence easily by accessing StratumFive’s global client base, data holdings and technical infrastructure.

    Podium launches with a series of in-house options including voyage monitoring, weather routing and StratumFive’s next generation compliance and tracking applications.

    “With many years spent in operations around the world, I have been frustrated by the inefficiencies and costs caused by poor data acquisition, processing and communication across applications and stakeholders,” said Mike Powell, strategy director, StratumFive.

    “Until now, digitalisation has often made things worse for people working on ships and at shore, as increasing enterprise-wide data and information demands require too much manual intervention and effort. Currently, high levels of activity do not always equal productivity.

    “Podium is designed to be the workspace for the whole enterprise, linking data and applications, ensuring all stakeholders not only start from the same page, but also have the tools they need to maximise the efficiency and value of their part of the voyage.”

    Ross Martin, COO, StratumFive, added: “It is true that shipping businesses globally are currently not reaping the promised rewards of digitalisation - but Podium provides the solution that our industry desperately needs to realise cost savings and other operational efficiencies.

    “A growing number of operators are laboriously gathering data from a number of silos and trying to make sense of it using generic ‘business intelligence’ tools. These tools do not offer the maritime domain specific functionality, nor the degree of automation required to make smarter operational decisions faster.”

    StratumFive consulted closely with the industry in the development of Podium. Major owners and operators are already using the platform across their daily operations, with reportedly more preparing to adopt the technology in the near future.
