|[Maritimeline – Onboard & Ashore Life] Your company
Currently being employed by Danish company Dannebrog rederi under Nordana line ownership as chief engineer with short term COE. The most powerful impressions regarding communication system that I have to introduce at the moment: Communication systems. Vessels with Globe Wireless will end their contract in 2015 and will move to Speedcast, Speedcast is a company which presently operate approx. 700 commercial vessels with V‐sat. Existing Speedcast vessels will after 1st June get an increase in bandwidth, CIR will be increased from 64/64 to 128/128 and burst will increase from 512/256 to 640/384. It is still a slow connection even though the Globe Wireless vessels only has a CIR of 32/32 and burst of 256/128, wherefore you have to be smart onboard in order to give all a good user experience. Speedcast is a fully automated system with automatic beam switch and prioritized traffic control, the traffic (bandwidth) is prioritized as follows: A. VOIP B. E‐mail C. Crew WiFi The system will automatically decrease the Crew WiFi bandwidth when business e‐mail traffic is present, wherefore there is no need or benefit in switching off the Crew WiFi network. The Crew WiFi network is setup in such a way that a user will automatically be terminated after 60 minutes, this to ensure that devises are not taking up bandwidth if a user is not using his or her device.
