Em­brac­ing the con­cept of ‘ smart shipping’, UASC ( United Arab Shipping Company) is de­ploy­ing var­i­ous tech­nolo­gies, in­clud­ing web- based fleet man­age­ment, elec­tronic doc­u­ment han­dling sys­tems, and a bet­ter crew wel­fare of­fer­ing. To achieve this, it ap­proached Mar­link for WaveCall Plus VSAT to pro­vide the con­nec­tiv­ity for 17 newly built ad­vanced con­tainer ships.

Mar­link will pro­vide sta­ble con­nec­tiv­ity, fu­ture- proofed for HTS ( high through­put satel­lites) when avail­able. The sys­tem com­bines Ku- band VSAT with L- band, and helps to im­prove crew ser­vices to stay in touch with fam­ily and friends on the phone, by email, or other on­line ap­pli­ca­tions.
