GMN WebXaccelerator for Ship-to-Shore Comms
Global Marine Networks introduced the GMN webXaccelerator for ship-to-shore and remote communications needs for the commercial fishing, marine transport, cruise ships, offshore oil rigs, and first-response communications coordination markets. The webXaccelerator is a data accelerator and control router that gives users of satellite and other wireless data systems control of their satellite data installations, while providing data speeds up to five times faster than uncompressed rates.
“The webXaccelerator is designed to save customers time and money through satellite specific data compression and the ability to sell and control shared data feed access, while saving satellite system providers time and money by making installations easier, more reliable and more flexible,” said Dr. Luis Soltero, Chief Technical Officer of Global Marine Networks. “The webXaccelerator can be used to address common situations for satellite data system users and installers: create a satellite-based Internet café; generate new revenue or control shared usage through user-defined pin codes for clients, crew or passengers using a single data feed, solve installation challenges through load-balancing, or increase reliability by changing between two different satellite networks on the fly.”
