Digitalization for smaller vessels

As digitalisation spreads across the shipping industry, having access to email services is gaining importance in order to receive navigation updates, port notifications and operational instructions.

Thanks to a partnership development from IEC Telecom and GTMaritime, a new product, MarineStar E-Lite, provides voice and data connectivity in a package optimised for smaller vessels. Voice services are delivered over Thuraya’s Marine Star terminal, while email provision comes via IEC Telecom’s OneMailLite application, powered by GTMaritime. This dedicated connectivity solution is equipped with a fleetwide shore-side dashboard, allowing full visibility over performance, threat management and enabling remote changes to system configurations and real-time management of consumption limits. In addition, all files being transferred are compressed up to 95%, saving on airtime costs.

By default, MarineStar offers two lines to separate corporate communication and crew welfare. By including an email app, this voice terminal can now serve as a comprehensive communication solution for small and mid-sized vessels as well as a resilient back-up solution for large VSAT-equipped vessels.

The OneMailLite application has been developed in accordance with latest data protection regulations and includes robust security features.
