Reliable internet is critical to a successful mission for cargo and container ship. It is needed for transmitting estimated arrival and departure schedules, update cargo reports, as well as planing the most fuel-efficient routes based on real-time weather and chart updates.
Internet availability varies across a ship’s journey. Cargo and container ship journeys across sea. In short sea and offshore, 4G LTE is within reach. Wi-Fi is accessible at or closer to shore. VSAT and Iridium or Inmarsat mobile satellite service cover deep sea and will be the only internet option when both 4G LTE and Wi-Fi are out of coverage.
By using Peplink Balance or Pepwave MAX router to combine and switch between these wireless internet, you can have a fast and dependable internet at the lowest cost.
