VSAT installation for the whole ATUNSA tuna fleet completed
NAUTICAL has completed the installation of its VSAT solution on board the whole ATUNSA tuna fleet.
By the end of 2016 a first VSAT was installed on a new construction for a three months trial period and after the successful results experienced on board ATUNSA decided to install the VSAT Ku system on board their whole fleet.
Along the last three months NAUTICAL has already installed the whole VSAT system on board the remaining 11 vessels of ATUNSA’s fleet which are fishing at the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.
The experience and knowledge gathered through more than 50 years of history of this tuna company, together with the continuous updating and innovation of its fleet, allows ATUNSA to offer a top quality product to all markets worldwide.
This installation in based on the well-known COBHAM Sailor 900 VSAT Ku-band antenna.
The service offers access to Internet, with Global coverage allowing the use on board of different monitoring systems, weather applications, buoys applications, corporate email, web browsing services and many other applications. This VSAT solution also allows for simultaneous voice calls for two VoIP lines while surfing Internet.
To optimize communications on board the crew can benefit from very competitive rates for voice and data managed directly on board through XChange Power.
XChange Power is a single and effective integrated platform, which provides the most reliable connectivity to the satellite network and cuts operational costs at the same time.
XChange Power has been designed to offer shipping companies, IT managers, captains and also the crew a full set of features to simplify and better control the access to data and voice services on board and even remote access from shore can be provided upon owner’s request. The crew can use their personal devices on board too thanks to several WiFi access points installed on different decks.
