Marlink unveils BridgeLink digital enablement platform

Marlink has unveiled BridgeLink, a technology agnostic solutions portfolio designed to interconnect on board Operational Technology (OT) within a standardised data structure.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}BridgeLink addresses compatibility and interfacing challenges by providing an open, technology agnostic platform for unifying onboard equipment and sensors with network infrastructure and satellite IP connectivity, so that data from any system can be accessed, collected and shared in a single interface at sea or ashore.

Providing access to data from OT such as radar, automation, power and propulsion systems, BridgeLink enables Marlink customers to use scalable remote ship management and smart maintenance systems to further enhance and improve vessel efficiency using secure data collection for specialised analysis and applications.

The solution is fully customisable to fit any specific technical needs and creates the link between onboard systems and sensors and how critical data they generate is used to optimise operations. This includes reduced fuel consumption and compliance with IMO regulations, extending equipment lifecycle and improving ‘first time fix’ success rates.

Marlink reports that BridgeLink is the next stage in the company’s maritime digital enablement strategy. Currently, the strategy provides a platform for data-driven safety and efficiency improvements on thousands of ships worldwide, through unified smart global connectivity, cybersecurity services and IT network management solutions.

Marlink subsidiary Telemar will leverage BridgeLink to introduce a unique smart maintenance service, ensuring that shipowners can secure more availability of their assets at sea.

“We created BridgeLink to make remote ship management and maintenance processes more straightforward, streamlined, agnostic and secure than ever before,” said Tore Morten Olsen, President Maritime, Marlink.

“With its capacity to integrate, analyse and clearly present any data from any vessel in any back-end system, it introduces the same flexibility and choice that our customers already experience with Marlink’s Smart Connectivity, CyberGuard and ITLink portfolios,” added Mr Olsen. {/mprestriction}
