Orange offers new way of working at sea with Maritime Connect
In support of the digital transformation across the shipping industry, Orange Business Services has developed an industrialized product to deliver functionality and connectivity for communications at sea. Maritime Connect allows shipping companies to integrate their fleets into the corporate network, and provides internet access for crews as well as for applications. It means that shipping companies, IT managers, captains, and the crew will be able to control access to data and voice services on board vessels or remotely from the shore. Developed over 12 months, as part of a European Union initiative to improve communications on vessels at sea, Maritime Connect delivers voice, VoIP, data, and internet access independently of the communication technology used.
