NSSLGlobal has expanded its maritime communications portfolio with the addition of a regional product aimed at providing services to vessels operating in Asian waters, called FusionIP-LITE.
Based on the company’s existing FusionIP service, for a single monthly service fee LITE customers will be able to automatically switch between cellular and satcom networks to enable always-on connectivity at speeds of up to 40 Mbps.
The FusionIP-LITE service uses a single 3G/4G/LTE SIM which can operate up to 20km offshore, switching to Iridium Certus outside of cellular coverage.
The system also incorporates automatic WAN switching, an e-mail service, core firewalling, eNOAD, and file management/synchronisation capabilities within the monthly fee.
“Since its launch in late 2017, the award winning FusionIP has been a phenomenal success and firm customer favourite, but its deployment has been limited to European coastal waters,” said Priya Patel, APAC Regional Sales Director, NSSLGlobal.
“We can expand our FusionIP suite as this service is based around our in-house engineered products. This enables NSSLGlobal to deliver solutions that are practical and rapidly bring them to market. This agility and engineering expertise differentiates us from our competitors.”
“Now, with FusionIP-LITE, vessel operators in Asia can also benefit from safer, smarter and more efficient operations thanks to the power of always-on communications.”
