Inmarsat and Hyundai have signed an agreement whereby the shipbuilder’s subsidiary, Hyundai Global Service, will use dedicated bandwidth from Inmarsat to offer shipowners and managers a digital care package for new ship deliveries.

Communications provider IEC Telecoms stresses that in successfully deploying digitalisation on a vessel owners must ensure reliable back-up systems and cyber-security.

Autonomous vessels have become a recurrent theme in shipping debates in recent years but the focus has to turn to regulations to bring the topic forward, Dualog ceo Morten Lind-Olsen says.

IEC Telecom is expanding into Denmark with a primary focus on the maritime market.

Mobile telecoms body Inmarsat has enhanced its maritime cyber security service, Fleet Secure, with two new additions: intelligent endpoint security for onboard computers and a mobile training app for crew.

A packed audience of nearly 200 heard strong opinions as to whether or not the maritime industry is ready to embrace smart shipping at a parliamentary-style debate held on the opening day of the Seatrade Maritime Middle East event in Dubai on Monday.

A panel discussion at Seatrade Maritime Middle East led by IEC Telecom and Inmarsat addressed the critical role connectivity plays in the maritime industry.

It is not something you hear every day but Paul Stanley, ceo of GNS, actually wants to help customers by less of the company’s electronic charts and navigational data.

Inmarsat has launched a new Internet of Things (IoT) service developed in partnership with Danelec Marine which allows owners and managers to access and analyse realtime data from vessels more effectively.

Shipowners are set to spend an average of $2.5m on Internet of Things (IoT) solutions over the next three years based on the findings of a report commissioned by Inmarsat.
