Maritime

Empowering Ships at Sea with Boundless Connectivity

Ship operators need global satellite connectivity over the world’s seas and oceans to operate and monitor their increasingly automated vessels. As new applications transform the digital ship, the right satellite service is an essential long-term investment for maritime companies focused on operating efficiency and profitability.

MARITIME

ITC Global understands the varied and emerging connectivity requirements for high-performance communications at sea. We provide robust, end-to-end solutions customized for business communications, shipboard operations and crew welfare needs.

Managed Services – A Hand-in-Hand Approach to Smart Communications

Maritime operators need satellite communications solutions for fleet management, ship performance monitoring, route optimization, data transfer, weather forecasting and crew training and welfare. Maritime companies can rely on our first-hand industry knowledge to deliver solutions that scale to fit expanding operations and bandwidth requirements for serving passengers and moving cargo.

We create tailor-made networking solutions to support the unique challenges of today’s leading maritime fleets. This includes:

  • Allocating bandwidth so traffic prioritization meets operating needs across an entire fleet
  • Segmenting capacity to avoid extra costs without jeopardizing performance
  • Selecting components for the specific needs of each vessel or port-based office
  • Monitoring and optimizing a network around the clock
