Performance, security, and extensibility are the most essential requirements for infrastructure solutions. Besides that, every company and branch has additional specific requirements for their infrastructure solution, e.g. cash systems, security, or control processes. Our team of network engineers consists of skilled consultants with long-term cross-industry IT knowledge and project experiences. According to their technological focus, they support clients e.g. in design, engineering, set up, or optimization of existing and emerging network and internet solutions. Our customized network and IT-solution are designed, engineered, built, and rolled out by our team.
Converged network solution for the cruise industry
Cruise companies need innovative convergence solutions on board their vessels to offer unique value to their customers at all times. Our team of Project Managers and Network Engineers are ready to apply data center implementations & Wi-Fi roll-outs with state-of-the-art technology. It might be challenging for IT teams to manage a wealth of independent onboard applications. But only well-designed, structured, and engineered network and IT solutions will be reliable, highly available, and secure. For that reason, our tethered or untethered networks (LAN/WLAN) are designed and engineered in a converged manner. This enables us to integrate onboard applications into one single network solution, which can be centrally managed or monitored. By using state-of-the-art technologies and certified protocols we ensure, our solutions are secure, have high performance, and are extensible to the customer’s changing requirements at any time.
Network and onboard security
According to industry standards and requirements, it is necessary to separate logical networks on-board a ship (e.g. cash systems, camera systems, guest WLAN). We provide consultancy to our customers on logical network separation, firewalls, content filtering, and proxy systems. Besides that, we have a longstanding partnership with CCTV providers to ensure the highest security for on-board guests, their luggage, or compliance with industry security standards.
