Marlink’s New Access Controller

Thursday, October 29, 2009

Marlink has launched the Access Controller, a new cost-effective system which enables the seamless management of a ship's onboard satellite communications network. The compact and lightweight system can be installed on any vessel to make switching between VSAT, Iridium OpenPort or Inmarsat FleetBroadband systems extremely quick and easy, helping users to efficiently manage the costs of satellite communications at sea.

"Bandwidth, coverage and costs vary from one satellite communications solution to another, which has led many ship operators to install more than one system onboard so that all of their requirements can be met. Our new Access Controller ensures that management of multiple systems is trouble-free. The system's fully dynamic firewall capability enables the vessel operator to set up profiles, which allocate bandwidth and access to services depending on location and user priority, enabling a more efficient use of satellite communications services," said Chris Henny, Senior Project Manager, Marlink.     

The Access Controller's interface clearly displays which data services are being used, how much data has been sent and received, as well as how long the system has been online. Additionally, the 'Remote User Control' and 'Remote WAN to WAN' functions allow support technicians to access the system remotely if required. The system is available with four or eight ports to enable connection to the vessel's network. The eight port model is available as a compact shelf, wall mounted unit or as a standard 19 inch 1U rack.
