All that is about to change and the barriers to maritime communication are to be swept away as oceans become truly connected spaces for the first time.
One part of such a breakthrough comes in the shape of a global network powered by a high-frequency radio system by Telenor Maritime. Its pole-to-pole coverage sets cruise operators free to explore the world’s oceans with health, safety, data integrity and security uncompromised by the distance from shore. In a world in recovery from economic stagnation, being able to pick up two decades of technological slack with a single, affordable step is surely the ultimate boon.
Affordable, real-time, global, secure access to onshore maintenance and management is the future.
The revolution in connectivity at sea brings opportunities to transform the way that cruise operators do business. Simply being able to monitor fuel consumption and acquire real-time feedback on ship systems add up to a sustainable transformation that improves efficiency and lowers costs across the fleet. It also improves safety and enables sophisticated analysis of data while the vessel is actually sailing and that means less time in dockside maintenance. Affordable, real-time, global, secure access to onshore maintenance and management is the future.
The functionality is useful at all scales, even for small, expedition and explorer cruises that often operate in areas where even basic digital coverage can be lost. With bridge systems connected to shore and real-time monitoring and analysis available, exploring far-flung corners of the world doesn’t have to mean disconnection from the safety of shore systems.
