NSSLGlobal, the global independent satcom and IT solutions provider, has won a 36-month contract to support Dutch-owned, worldwide shipping expert Vertom Bereederungs as it strives to meet the need for ever higher data demands brought on by the maritime industry’s ongoing digitalisation alongside the need for crew retention. The agreement sees NSSLGlobal provide its renowned VSAT IP@SEA service to 28 Vertom ships including 13 new diesel-electric propelled vessels, as well as providing Vertom with a complete on-board IT equipment package. This includes an on-board managed Windows Enterprise Server solution operating user authentication, security updates and print and file server, all covered by NSSLGlobal’s, comprehensive Extended Warranty Plan.
As Vertom expands its fleet and focuses on developing high performance, sustainable options for shipping operations, NSSLGlobal will be supporting Vertom’s digitalisation vision by rolling out its latest SMART@SEA platform across the fleet. This will allow Vertom to benefit from the full range of NSSLGlobal IT, Cyber Security and Crew Entertainment suite of services. To gain additional operational resilience, Vertom will be using NSSLGlobal’s INSIGHT customer portal, allowing the HQ to monitor its fleet VSAT usage, applications and connectivity alongside additional functionality such as the ability to automatically upgrade and downgrade vessel packages as required to meet changing and urgent bandwidth demands.
