Globe Wireless announced E.R. Schiffahrt of Hamburg, Germany will install the Globe iFusion solution on nearly 90 vessels. Roland Felbinger, Nautical Senior Superintendent, of E.R. Schiffahrt commented, “Our corporate IT strategy is to utilize IP satellite technologies to improve our ability to remotely support shipboard IT systems, and lowering cost for growing traffic. Our evaluation showed that with most stand-alone terminals it would be necessary to install several other IT components. This meant complex, high maintenance systems aboard ships, which would also be difficult to install and support.”

The Globe iFusion system was recently awarded the Inmarsat 2010 Maritime Solution of the Year award.
