Ferry operators face IT demands in delivering corporate data and information to captains and crews so they can manage their vessels efficiently. In addition the market is changing to the point that ferry passengers demand connectivity similar to what is available on-shore. Some ferries flip between LTE signals as they pass through countries or move along the coastline, sometimes causing a loss of communication. Other more remote ferries have no access to LTE and are solely reliant on satellite. Connectivity is important not just for guest services but also for increased safety. Leveraging highly reliable communications is critical to ensure that vessels experience no operational downtime and can be operated with the full amenities and functionality available.
