‘End-to-end’ cloud solution from Ericsson

Ericsson Headquarters Ericsson Headquarters Ericsson

Ericsson has announced the introduction of Maritime ICT Cloud, an ‘end-to-end’ integrated cloud solution designed to facilitate voyage optimisation, cargo monitoring and crew welfare.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}

The Swedish telecoms giant says Maritime ICT Cloud will combine a managed cloud solution with industry applications, using real-time traffic, cargo, port, weather and safety data. 

This information will be shared across a network made up not only of vessels at sea, but also shore-based operations, maintenance service providers, customer support centres, transportation partners, and port authorities.

Services will include fleet management, engine and fuel monitoring, route optimisation and navigation, as well as crew communications, training and entertainment. Ericsson says everything will be delivered in a single integrated package, from satellite connectivity to application support.

"Vessels at sea do have systems in place that allow them to monitor critical functions and fuel usage, set and maintain an optimal course and ensure the welfare of their crew, but they are not particularly well integrated with fleet management systems onshore and they do not maximise the potential of real-time data,” says Orvar Hurtig, head of Industry & Society at Ericsson.

“As the driving force behind the Networked Society and the world leader in telecommunications, Ericsson is the right partner to help connect these disparate systems and enable them to share information with low latency."

Ericsson says it will be highlighting Maritime ICT Cloud at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), currently taking place in Las Vegas. CES was also the venue in 2012, when Ericsson announced it had signed a landmark deal with Maersk Line to provide systems integration and deployment of mobile and satellite communication to its entire vessel fleet.
