KVH and ScanReach partner to improve shipboard IoT data access

KVH has signed a new agreement with ScanReach to support improved access to internet of things (IoT) sensor signals within the steel environment of a vessel.

ScanReach will join the KVH Watch Solution Partner programme and offer KVH Watch Cloud Connect services alongside its technology to transmit digital signals throughout a ship without cabling. The system can operate in steel environments that can typically interfere with the radio signals used in wireless communications.

“We are thrilled to partner with ScanReach and be able to offer shipowners, OEMs, and service technicians a totally sensor to cloud wireless connectivity solution for vessel performance using data from all the equipment onboard today’s complex vessels,” said Sven Brooks, Senior Director of IoT Business Development for KVH.

KVH’s Cloud Connect service is designed to assist in managing data from onboard sensors with a package containing data source definitions, data mappings, and associated dashboards. An onboard Cloud Connect Edge Server aggregates and processes data from vessel sensors and provides a containerised, hybrid cloud architecture to enable downsampling, data storage, and data access for analysis.
