Vizada Launches SkyFile C Store & Push Service

(Press Release)
Wednesday, August 31, 2011

Vizada launched SkyFile C Store & Push to offer customers highly-reliable data reporting and polling services, including VMS (Vessel Monitoring System), LRIT (Long Range Identification & Tracking) and FleetNet.
This new development enables shipping companies to adhere strictly to international maritime law: International Maritime Organisation regulations stipulate that a vessel must send a position report every six hours, and that this report must in turn be delivered to the data center in less than 15 minutes (or seven minutes in European countries).  SkyFile-C Store & Push runs over a dedicated platform, developed by Vizada at its teleport in Aussaguel, France as part of a major upgrade to its Inmarsat-C infrastructure. In addition to providing greater capacity for data reporting traffic such as VMS and LRIT, the platform enables all data reports transmitted from vessels to be stored in a database at the gateway. In case of network failure during transmission, the reports can be protected and forwarded to data centers at a later stage once the network issues have been resolved.
Vizada’s recent developments on its Inmarsat-C gateway also enables it to deliver data reports over a number of different networks, including FTP and IP, to cater for the varying requirements of the parties involved in the reporting process (data centers, shipping companies, flag states, local regulators, etc.).
“As monitoring and reporting traffic increases significantly, it is important for mobile satellite providers to step up to the challenge and ensure the most reliable and flexible service for both shipping companies and data centers,” said Jean-Marc Duc, Inmarsat-C Product Manager at Vizada. “The major investments we have made in our Inmarsat-C infrastructure over the past few years are a proof of our strong commitment to providing shipping companies end-users with most reliable way of conforming to IMO regulations.”
