4G/LTE is the reliable global communications solution for all vessels while operating within a 60 KM (40 miles) range of shore and on all inland waterways. Do not be dissuaded by Satellite Operators and distributors saying otherwise! Whether operating full time within this distance, ranging in and out, in-port at rest or in-transit to new destinations, an opportunity for operational efficiency and savings can be realized.
Nearshorenetworks utilizes the most advanced antenna and signaling equipment in the world to deliver this robust service. It operates globally without roaming to deliver expense containment by deferring expensive full time Satellite usage charges. Bandwidth is seamlessly switched between Satellite and GSM through onboard systems through a prioritization system. Data and voice for all vessel systems, passengers and crew are enhanced through availability of bandwidth balanced to the most appropriate platform.
