Alphatron has been awarded with a contract by Van Oord to increase crew welfare onboard 30 vessels. Alphatron will design and install a crew WiFi network on board, which will be connected to the vessel’s VSAT system and optionally the 3G or 4G advanced network system.
All bandwidth is managed and optimized through a hardware appliance, ensuring the bandwidth is available for all users on board. A hotspot solution is implemented with a Van Oord captive portal for users to log on to. For the Van Oord crew, it is a highly appreciated step forward to be able to stay connected to the world when limited to cellular coverage.
All hardware, software and policies are managed remotely by Alphatron Marine as part of a 3-year support contract.
