A MAX BR1 IP55 was fitted with a SIM card and an AP One AC Mini connected via Ethernet extends the Wi-Fi signal to cover the vessel.
This setup allows for multiple workstations to be connected to the network and the crew can now work simultaneously, greatly improving productivity.
The MAX BR1 is flexible- when fitted with a 3G SIM card, it provides connectivity for inland vessels.
For sea-going vessels, connection reliability is raised to another level. The MAX BR1 is set to use VSAT as the primary WAN connection and 3G for automatic failover. Having seen the improvements in productivity and connection reliability, Chemgas has decided to equip all 40 of their vessels with the same setup, keeping the entire fleet in line with the digital age.
