Irish company Net Feasa, an IoT service provider focused on supply chain logistics, has become the latest company to join the KVH Watch Solution Partner programme, linking the KVH Watch service with Net Feasa’s container tracking and monitoring system.
“It is our vision that all containers that move across the global supply chain will be IoT enabled and have connectivity to the cloud. At sea, the combination of Net Feasa’s EvenKeel and KVH Watch IoT platform will accelerate the realisation of this goal,” said Mike Fitzgerald, Chairman of Net Feasa.
“We are a global, open standards-based service provider to the world’s container tracking market, wirelessly enabling all container monitoring devices on vessels. Traditionally, the biggest challenge to container connectivity on ships has been the cost of satellite connectivity. KVH will addresses this challenge with cost-effective hardware and a bandwidth-efficient solution for the maritime IoT market.”
KVH Watch is an IoT Connectivity as a Service (CaaS) system that provides machine-to-cloud data flow for remote monitoring of onboard equipment, with the ability to perform on-demand Remote Expert Interventions via KVH’s global communications network.
“Container tracking and monitoring is of vital importance to the maritime industry’s ability to move a tremendous volume of goods around the world, and we are thrilled to be able to support the operational efficiency of this segment,” said Sven Brooks, Senior Director of IoT Business Development for KVH.
