In the maritime industry communication at the sea is still facing a lot of challenges among which the most serious is lack of connectivity which delay communication, the gap in the wired world being the reason. In the era where continents are connected and over 80% of goods are traded by oceans this problem required to be harnessed.
However, some gaps in information communication can be solved with IoT; the smart devices powered by the Internet of Things can communicate the status of activities via the internet. It would enable to measure the running parameters by activating the solenoid. I maritime these IoT devices are used to communicating position, water pressure, telemetry data, and many more back to the shore for remote monitoring.
Transaction of a very small amount of data can be an affair of the hefty amount when beamed up into an orbit a take-back. But with IoT there is an affordable solution, the high-frequency radio can be used to deal with the expense. With proper KNL network building, an independent network is quite reliable. It can connect all the ships worldwide to shore with top-notch security.
This is basically an end-to-end solution that enables operators for connecting and collecting data from various instruments with onboard equipment and systems. All the collected data can be processed and formatted through an interconnected mesh network with the main data center on the shore.
According to Juho Jaakola, Head of Maritime Systems at KNL: this system has an enormous potential for digitalization that can help the industry to achieve the next level. He also mentioned they are going to start the system with the most important data which would simplify the decision-making process by a notch or two.
Another worth mentioning benefit is reducing the operating cost which will put you in a better position than your rivals in the market. The system ensures a two-way commination over high-frequency radio that provides a secure connection for a range up to 10,000 km which ensures full visibility transparency to the operators. This innovation has eased up the entire communication process of the marine for the first time in the history of shipping.
