Unbelievable, what bonding DSL, UMTS and LTE makes possible
Getting On Board And Online
Luxurious river cruises require not only impressive logistics but also an extensive understanding of customers’ needs. Especially in the five-star segment, it’s no longer enough to provide star-cuisine, exquisite bedding and well-balanced leisure activities. Customers also demand to get online whenever they choose, via the same broadband Internet they’re used to at home or at work and keep in touch with family and friends or their coworkers via emails, photos, video conferences, but also use video-on-demand services etc. As leading network-independent connectivity specialist in the field of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication, M2MBlue is an expert when it comes to providing river cruise vessels and super yachts with the broadband connectivity they desire. And here’s why M2MBlue counts on Viprinet technology to help fulfill these high-speed demands.
Connecting regional offices and ships
Connecting offices all over the world and meeting increasing demands for bandwidth and reliable access to mission critical applications is a common challenge for modern global corporations. Because their network infrastructure has developed over the course of their growth, many of them still rely on expensive, low capacity MPLS lines. Sonardyne, a pioneer in providing maritime sensing services for over forty years, is replacing an existing MPLS infrastructure with a robust Viprinet VPN solution for interoffice and mobile communications. This UK corporation, headquartered in Yateley, Hampshire, has remote offices in Brazil, Singapore, and the USA, as well as several research and development ships. Interoffice and mobile communications are critical to their operations. Their regional offices increasingly depend on access to centralized ERP and CRM systems, and their ships need reliable and continuous connectivity, especially to accurately report GPS correction data in a timely fashion.
Stable Internet for Earthquake Relief
After the grave earthquake in middle Italy in October 2016, Viprinet supported Italian Institute for Geophysics and Vulcanology INGV at setting up a stable communications network in the affected region. Tragic natural catastrophes like earth quakes often leave IT and communications infrastructures destroyed or at least insufficient. In order to coordinate rescuers’ operations on site and to organize subsequent reconstruction, installing a ready-to-use communications infrastructure becomes a high priority according to disaster relief. Not only need numerous organizations, authorities, and rescuers on site to be organized, but also a communications infrastructure between the hurriedly established local situation rooms and the central offices all over Italy must be installed quickly in order to broadcast relevant data e.g. from earth quake measuring stations or drone cameras to and from the affected regions.
