Why would a FleetBroadband be useful?
The FleetBroadband was originally made available to increase crew welfare by offering the ability to send e-mail, make phone calls and receive news from home whilst at sea. Since 2007, Inmarsat have been able to introduce many more reasons to make a FleetBroadband a real asset to your vessel.
Efficiency has been improved because of FleetBroadband. ECDIS is able to be updated, new software can be downloaded and more importantly offering the ability to connect 24/7 to a company network so you can be in the office whilst at sea.
Safety features include damage assessment videos, photos and reports, Off-the-self cameras for surveillance for use on the vessel or remote surveilance, on-line procurement and reliable communication with emergency services.
