After spending almost a year evaluating the various systems available, Broströms in Sweden with its partners have awarded Virtek Communications a contract to install CommBox on 40 vessels.
What Broströms were looking for was not only a cost effective e-mail solution, but also a land based means to remotely control the entire network on-board all 40 vessels. In addition, they needed a solution capable of tackling dial-up, MPDS, leased lines and future developments. And it all had to be packaged as a 19” rack solution to fit the new infrastructure requirements on-board with terminal servers and thin clients.
Broströms found everything they were looking for in CommBox from Virtek Communications - the leading producer of ship to shore communication systems in Norway. With its special e-mail server and TCP/IP router, CommBox is expected to adequately meet all needs both now and in the future.
