4G LTE for Marine | Infographic


Check out our latest infographic, “4G LTE for Cruise Ships”, to find out why 4G LTE networking solutions are fast becoming a must-have for the global cruise ship industry and read on below to see how we could help to optimise communications for your shipping operations – cruise or otherwise.


4G LTE for Cruise Ships


The global cruise industry is consistently increasing across not just ocean but also river markets, as consumers look for new ways to embrace different cultures and experiences. Although cruises are designed to provide an escape from day-to-day life, consumers still expect to be able to connect phones, tablets and other devices wherever they go. In addition, cruise ships themselves are becoming increasingly connected as businesses look to deploy more advanced technologies on-board vessels to help optimise their operations, from IoT-enabled proactive maintenance, to more reliable communications for employees.

This trend of increased connectivity is not limited to cruise ships however, with similar developments being seen across the marine industry – from fishing fleets to Coast Guard, and leisure fleets to container ships. Westbase.io’s 4G LTE solutions provide a simple and cost-effective solution which seamlessly works with existing connectivity and communication systems, such as satellite. By enabling your fleet, whatever its purpose, with our cellular networking solutions your nearshore communications can be made more efficient while continuing to be supported by satellite when further out to sea – giving you the best of both worlds with no need for user intervention.
