BSMD (Hamburg) will initially install BOW’s GSM solution on their vessel CAP BRETON (ex.

Christiane Schulte). Using the BOW service, seafarers can, for the first time, make and receive

voice calls and send & receive SMS messages using their existing mobile phones.

Following recent upgrades to its network, in conjunction with partner Smart Communications

Inc, a subsidiary of the Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT), BOW now also

offers on-board e-mail capability and a global roaming service.

Subscribers to other telecoms networks can roam on all Blue Ocean Wireless equipped

vessels using their existing handset and SIM card. The roaming capability operates in the

same way as traditional land based GSM roaming and requires no special equipment or

preparation on the part of the user.

Blue Ocean Wireless CEO, Robert Johnson said, “We are delighted to welcome Bernhard

Schulte Shipmanagement as a customer of Blue Ocean Wireless. This represents another

significant customer milestone for the Blue Ocean Wireless team. We have made, and

continue to make, rapid progress in growing our customer base since our launch just over one

year ago.
