WINS maritime GSM solution uses the latest technology providing easy connectivity to all users. Highly qualified personnel can be deployed in any port to install the system, allowing passengers and crew to easily connect to the network. Users will be able to make calls and send text messages without a hitch, using their own mobile phone.
The communication systems installed are all specifically programmed to automatically switch off when entering territorial waters and re-activate when cruising out. The on board base station is a discrete unit, having a very small form factor. Systems are monitored and maintained regularly to ensure maximum up-time. Using Distributed Antennas Systems complete ship coverage is assured.
WINS onboard internet access scheme is versatile and gives clients reliable connectivity besides various revenue generators and marketing options.
Onboard internet access also satisfies the needs of passengers and crew who still need to access the internet while they are out at sea. This service allows free browsing on a number of pre-determined sites. Free internet usage of pre-determined sites gives the ferry and cruise line operators an effective onboard marketing tool. For full internet access a browser-based login page and a PIN number are easily available. These PIN numbers can be bought on site using an array of retail methods. Dedicated PCs designed for offshore use can also be installed on-board by WINS.
WiFi access has today become more than a necessity. WINS has an onboard solution that is dependable and manageable. The system offers complete WiFi access including an onboard Hotspot management system. This ensures the best on-board service managed professionally, leveraging on the vast experience WINS has in the sector.
A secure VPN connection means that the head office can stay in touch with the on-board team at any time wherever it is in the world. This allows crew members to interact with other staff members, receive direct technical support and send, and receive, e-mails in real time. The system can also help transferring on-board telemetry to a fleet-owned centralised system. The VPN connection will also link an on-board network to any other network.
WINS ship-tracking service allows shipping managers to monitor all vessel movements in real time. Besides pinpointing location, other services can be customised to clients’ needs.
