Onboard service Solutions
Nowhere Networks Onboard Services Solution enables ship operators to maximize the internet connectivity to the ships, provide a great user experience and the opportunity to create additional revenue from premium Wi-Fi services.
The Onboard Services solution functionality is based on two solutions developed by Nowhere Networks. A Dynamic Connectivity Gateway which is placed onboard each ship and a Wi-Fi Services Suite (WSS) running in Nowhere Networks’ cloud. Both solutions are tightly integrated and utilize the combined functionality to provide better and more reliable service for passengers, crew and critical ship functions like IoT.
Dynamic Connectivity Gateway
The Dynamic Connectivity Gateway (DCG) is used both for use cases with Wi-Fi access for passengers and crew as well as use cases to control the bandwidth prioritized and used by all forms of communication to and from the ship, such as passenger services, IoT and other ship systems, crew communication, payment terminals, etc.
One of the key components, that is offering unique functionality to the marine industry, is the Traffic Management Engine (TME). It is an industry first that that does real-time control of all data flowing in and out to the ship.
The TME does a deep analysis of traffic flowing through it. It can recognize and classify all types of traffic. Uniquely the TME also is aware of the available bandwidth in real-time. It can adjust traffic flows and prioritize different service and re-distribute bandwidth to ensure critical services and prioritized services are delivered within set parameters. It will manage bandwidth hogging services like streaming video to ensure it does not take all the bandwidth. This results in a significantly better user experience and happier passengers.
Wi-Fi Services Suite
Nowhere Networks Wi-Fi Services Suite (WSS) enables ship operators to offer added value to their passengers with internet access over Wi-Fi.
The WSS enables a ship operator to provide differentiated services over the Wi-Fi network. It can be used to control the services given to the passengers and ensure a great user experience. It is possible to control and limit the usage to make sure all users have a fair and reasonable usage while also providing the option for premium services and making sure prioritized services are managed correctly.
The WSS enables the possibility to monetize the Wi-Fi services and generate extra revenue. Additionally, is to provide the passengers with ship information, opportunities for surveys and advertisement.
The WSS comes with a Captive Portal. It offers a multitude of branding opportunities for the ship operator and becomes the starting point of the passenger’s digital journey. Available services can be presented to the passengers and purchased and redeemed with vouchers and credit cards.
It is possible to integrate WSS with mobile apps and systems such as booking, ticketing and loyalty program systems. If there is an existing portal it can be used and integrated with WSS though its APIs.
Fish farms and Wind farms
Nowhere Network’s solution has a number of uses and it is used with great success by, among others, the fishing industry in Norway.
In recent years, the fishing industry has evolved into a multibillion-dollar industry where very big money is at stake. The industry has, to a great extent, become high-tech and to be able to automate the management of fish farms requires reliable communication to fish farming.
By using Nowhere Network’s advanced tracker solution, fish farms can access the internet in a reliable and cost-effective way and at very long distances, so that they can monitor the fish’s health and feed them without being physically in the fish farm.
Other areas that we cover are Wind farms and Oil-rigs.
