“The collaboration between IEC Telecom and Blue C Mobile aims to enable the provision of unlimited access to various types of business and welfare applications for all types of ships,” said Ben Soussia in a statement, Thursday (20/10).
“This solution is specifically designed for Ku-Band antennas measuring 60 cm along with an optimized L-band network,” he explained.
The maritime satellite industry for Asia Pacific is projected to grow (CAGR) by 11% in the period from 2021 to 2026.
This growth was driven by several factors such as the increase in ship traffic in the Asia Pacific region, developments in maritime security policies, as well as the emphasis on the safety of crew members and assets spread across seas.
In addition, there is a demand for sophisticated security systems and seamless ship connectivity in China, Japan, Indonesia and India.
Moreover, the demand for maritime data and analysis is expected to drive market growth to US$370 million by 2028.
“Today’s digital technology has become a necessity to gain a competitive advantage for companies,” said Wesley Tham as CEO of Blue C Mobile.
“This can be seen from companies in the Asia Pacific region who are starting to embrace the presence of digitalization to improve cargo handling, ship routes, port operations, crew placement, and many others,” said Tham.
“By working with IEC Telecom, we promise to meet the needs and ensure business continuity of these companies, especially for small ship owners and operators,” he explained.
“Digitalizers can now access more than 300% of data per month and save 20% of their current satellite communications,” added Tham.
The presence of digitization allows the provision of data directly real-time which drives effective decision-making to improve operational efficiency, optimize process safety, and reduce fuel consumption.
In addition, special connectivity on board ensures increased safety for the crew, more precise work coordination and better working conditions on board.
The cumulative effect of digitization itself leads to significant cost reductions, which can even reach 30% of operational costs.

The VSAT solution offered by Blue C Mobile itself is supported by a 60 cm VSAT antenna at an affordable and lightweight cost.
This solution is specifically designed for the needs of small and medium vessels and those who do not have a large budget for antenna installation costs.
An integrated antenna management system with a single cable connection enables reduced shipping and installation costs for cruise ships, fishing vessels, and offshore vessels making VSAT services much more affordable and accessible.
IEC Telecom is also supported by a network management system, namely by OneGate which allows seamless switching between VSAT and L-band.
A smart terminal that is operated via a digital dashboard that can be accessed 24/7 for technology and information professionals on the ground.
In addition, the system OneGate also offers a variety of applications optimized for communications at sea, such as video conferencing, remote maintenance (tele-maintenance), electronic learning, Internet of Things (IoT), and asset monitoring.
“Digitalization is no longer a luxury, but an operational necessity. For years, digitalization has been seen as an advantage that only certain sectors have,” said Ben Soussia.
Inamarine 2022 is the perfect opportunity for decision makers in the offshore industry (offshore), shipbuilding, logistics, port security, and environmental protection to answer the digitalization demand in the global maritime industry. (RO/OL-09)
