Telaurus Communications LLC becomes one in a long list of companies offering "next-generation" communication solutions
to the marine industry. The company, based in Cedar Knolls, NJ, brings to the market the se@COMM application family of communications software
and the Telaurus Global Network. Telaurus claims to offer a "thinking" network that combines the best of multiple communication paths, including the Inmarsat system, into one single maritime network that is transparent to the user.
"At Telaurus, we believe in providing everyone in the maritime industry, from the captain to the crew, the same communications reliability, ease of use and cost-effectiveness whether at sea or on land," said Christopher Oldham, CEO of Telaurus Communications. Focused on the needs of both ship owners, ship management companies and their crews, Telaurus offers private and reliable off-the-bridge communications as well as convenient billing and file transfer capabilities. The company says that se@COMM took over two years to develop and then underwent four months of sea trials before being released. The trials were specifically conducted to measure se@COMM's performance, reliability, ease of use and flexibility in over 10 different shipping environments with as many different shipping companies. Using Iridium as the preferred voice solution and compressing and encrypting data to the highest possible standards, se@COMM remains consistently secure and reliable.
