In the Shipping Industry, Digitalization Has Become More and More Important

Published On 22 Feb 2021

In the shipping industry, digitalization has become more and more important. Internet of Things (IoT) has a huge impact in the maritime sector. Monitoring the total vessel, in real time if possible, creates a lot of data which can be used for a positive influence on energy consumption, efficiency and safety. And not the least, the environment. Besides IoT, connectivity is needed for a lot of other tasks, like sending emails, phonecalls etc. etc.

This requires a reliable and most affordable internet solution. Cellular connectivity, also known as 3G, 4G and 5G is fast and very cost-effective. With coverage near the coast and offshore, this is perfect complementary to VSAT, Iridium and Inmarsat satellite services, which can be used further from the coast. This raises a need for a router to monitor and manage this kind of connectivity and this is exactly what the Peplink SD-WAN routers are engineered for. Peplink has the widest range of routers, from small to large, depending on customer’s requirements.
