Global Marine Networks Inc. explain to blue-water boat owners how to stay in touch using the latest mobile communication devices

How to stay in touch with family, friends and information through radio, satellite voice, email and Internet services while at sea with laptops and smartphones is the subject of the GMN offering.

Blue water cruisers, and other boaters have more choices than ever when it comes to staying in touch while at sea, but some choices are better than others, according to a new report from Global Marine Networks (GMN), called Staying In Touch Offshore: Global Marine Networks’ Guide To Blue Water Cruising Communications.

“The changes we are seeing in communications technologies everywhere are affecting boaters, and particularly those who spend time cruising in blue waters,” said Dr. Luis Soltero, Chief Technology Officer of Global Marine Networks. “With the rapid adoption of fast-changing technologies like satellite phones, email services, and tablet computers like the iPad, it’s more important than ever for boaters to understand the roles of each technology in their communications plans. That’s why we are providing “Staying In Touch Off Shore” at no cost to the boating community.”


The report outlines the role of VHF and HF radio, as well as satellite communications for boaters, with detailed discussions of the advantages and disadvantages of each technology. High-demand data services including satellite phone email, weather and oceanographic data and web access each merit their own section of the guide, and sample equipment and services setups are provided including both narrowband and satellite broadband installations.
