CMA CGM Jules Verne

Marlink has been chosen by the CMA CGM Group, the world’s third largest container shipping group, to upgrade the majority of its fleet to WaveCall, Marlink’s standardized Ku-band VSAT service. In combination with the XChange solutions platform from Astrium Services, WaveCall will be installed on over 35 CMA CGM vessels, including the CMA CGM Marco Polo, CMA CGM Alexander Von Humboldt and CMA CGM Jules Verne, one of the largest container vessels in the world.

As CMA CGM’s fleet covers global trade routes, extensive Ku-band coverage was a key requirement when choosing WaveCall. The WaveCall proposition to CMA CGM is based on a cost-effective 5GB/month data plan, which enables a significant increase in email, web browsing and voice calling, when compared to the 200MB/month FleetBroadband packages used before.

As a responsible employer committed to the welfare of its crews, improving on board communication is important for CMA CGM’s commitment to meeting the new IMO Maritime Labour Conventions, which among other important aspects of life on board, will establish new standards for crew facilities, including communications. An important part of this is the XChange solutions platform, which provides enhanced control and management of connectivity as well as a comprehensive set of Internet-café like crew communications features.

Specially developed to meet communications requirements of CMA CGM crew members, a WiFi service over five access points per vessel will be established with XChange, allowing crew to connect to the Internet using mobile devices and laptops in the privacy of their own cabins. Using XChange, CMA CGM is able to provide crew services at prices similar to shore based connectivity, without increasing its own communication spend and can easily re-bill crew.

Other value added services provided to CMA CGM include a VPN connection for safe and reliable operational connectivity and @SeaWebControl, which provides the ability to filter content based on the company’s IT policy. @SEAwebControl blocks access to specific websites, restricts access to bandwidth-consuming services and gives priority to legitimate Internet usage.
