Inmarsat has collaborated with the start-up programmes, Rainmaking Trade and Transport Impact and Bluetech Accelerator, to support news businesses focused on the Internet of Things (IoT) and big data innovation in the maritime, ports and logistics supply chain.
Inmarsat and SRH Marine SAIT signed a contract on February 2019, that formalises arrangements for real-time Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) updating to be accomplished ‘ship-to-shore’ by using an application over FleetBroadband for the first time.
Inmarsat, a global leader in mobile satellite communications, announced a partnership with Microsoft that will enhance supply chain visibility and allow customers in the transportation and logistics sectors to transfer Industrial IoT (IIOT) data to the cloud.
Inmarsat starts a collaboration with Rainmaking’s Trade and Transport Impact (T&TI) and Bluetech Accelerator, to create initiatives that directly support start-ups focused on IoT and big data innovation in the maritime, ports and logistics supply chain.
The emerging risk associated with cyber threat requires not only better training for seafarers, but also spreading awareness of best cyber security practices, argued Peter Broadhurst, Senior VP of Safety and Security, Inmarsat Maritime, adding that there is still ‘a long way to go’ when it comes to effective cyber protection.
SAFETY4SEA is pleased to announce that Mr. Peter Broadhurst, Inmarsat has received the 2019 SMART4SEA Personality Award, sponsored by Tototheo Maritime, at a prestigious award ceremony which successfully concluded on January the 29th at Yacht Club of Greece in Athens, the evening ahead of the 2019 SMART4SEA Conference.
Inmarsat’s SpaceBytes published a video focusing on Cyber Security. Inmarsat’s Analyst James Weston who has an insight in cyber crimes comments that the front line of a cyber attack is behind a screen not on the street; you can’t see when or where it’s coming from.
In May 2018 Inmarsat asked Vanson Bourne, a technology market research company, to interview 750 respondents about their use of IoT within their organisation and industry. After that, Inmarsat created a tool which helps operators find out how their business’s IoT plans are, in comparison with the rest of the sector.
Mr. Alberto Perez, Inmarsat Maritime, notes that the maritime industry has realized the benefits of digitalization. Among many, digital technologies offer transparency which is very important; In this regard, Mr. Perez cites the example of Inmarsat’s Fleet Data which can virtually connect to any sensor, giving full transparency on bills as connectivity costs are included in the service.
Recent research conducted by the 2018 SAFETY4SEA Technology Award winner, Inmarsat, finds maritime industry more amenable to adopting analytic, management and operational tools applied through IoT than many commentators have supposed. But how IoT-based solutions can offer the industry a way of solving problems in response to rising future challenges?
