AST launches INTEGRA Edge Cloud

Provider of intelligent remote communication solutions, Applied Satellite Technology (AST) has announced the launch of INTEGRA Edge Cloud.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} INTEGRA Edge Cloud is the shore-side traffic analysis and management platform for the INTEGRA Edge service. It provides fleet and operations managers with current and historical metrics and analytics of all communications networks used onboard, allowing full visibility of both system, network and crew usage.

Users gain access via AST’s multi-function online connection management portal, My AST Portal, allowing them to monitor any vessel at any time without having to directly connect to the ship, cutting down on time and costs, and providing increased intelligence for improved efficiency.

It further enhances INTEGRA Edge which allows a ship’s captain to control all onboard communications whether satellite, cellular and WiFi through one simple intuitive interface making it easy to switch seamlessly to the most cost-effective connection at any point in time and save money. The solution also incorporates an integrated firewall, web and content filtering to restrict which data is allowed on and off the vessel, and a captive portal to manage the crew’s internet access efficiently.

AST Group managing director, Gregory Darling commented: “We are delighted to present INTEGRA Edge Cloud at Europort. We are innovators at heart, and we develop our solutions with the customer in mind, focusing on operational efficiency, costs savings and ease of use.” {/mprestriction}

  • i4sea signs up as Inmarsat Fleet Data provider

    Brazil-based startup i4sea and Inmarsat have signed an agreement for i4sea to join a group of certified application providers to provide a dedicated application for Inmarsat’s Fleet Data service.

    Fleet Data collects data from onboard sensors, pre-processes that data, and uploads it to a central cloud-based database, equipped with a dashboard and an Application Programming Interface (API).

    The partnership came as a result of the Bluetech Accelerator, a program created by the Portuguese Ministry of the Sea in 2019 to create an ecosystem of maritime innovation and business acceleration. i4sea was one of 20 startups around the world – and the only one from Latin America - selected to develop pilot projects with maritime market leaders including Inmarsat.

    Headquartered in Salvador, Brazil and with offices in São Paulo, Shanghai and London, i4sea will provide a high-precision sea and weather forecasting application with up to seven days forecasting in advance through i4cast’s Atm Ocean tool.

    “As a Certified Application Provider, we will be constantly developing new features to generate increasingly powerful tools for the maritime market,” said i4sea CEO Bruno Balbi. “Working with a company like Inmarsat is really a great deal for i4sea and this is the first smart system that integrates in a single platform, all the essential tools to support decision making regarding vessel’s maneuvers and port terminal’s operations,” he said.

    Six integrated tools are offered and includes services such as ocean and weather hyperlocal forecasts, dynamic draft prediction, terminal efficiency analytics and analysis and prediction of siltation or erosion dynamics of the seabed.

    “We are delighted to be working with such an innovative start-up such as i4Sea, a company we worked with as part of the Portuguese Bluetech accelerator programme earlier this year,” said Marco Cristoforo Camporeale, head of digital Solutions, Inmarsat Maritime. “

    “This tie-up will allow ship operators and managers to both route plan and improve terminal efficiency and this is all achieved through the i4sea application on Fleet Data and via a secure platform that is fully scalable, fleet-wide and now commercially available on both Fleet Xpress and FleetBroadband,” said Mr Camporeale.

    Currently, i4sea's clients include Brazilian companies such as TECON Salvador (Wilson, Sons), Açu Petróleo, CSN Coal and Ore Terminal, Cotegipe Port, Bahia’s Maritime Authority, Itajaí Port, Enseada, among others. There are also international contracts with the ports of Leixões and Sines, in Portugal.
