Case Study: Nearshore Connectivity for Maritime Logistics


Rocktree archives near 100% Network Availability and Enhanced Service Uptime


In the maritime industry, IT teams must monitor, manage, and track assets deployed across large fleets roaming around the world. Traditional maritime connectivity options like satellite are expensive and cannot keep up with innovative transport logistics strategies, the Internet of Things (IoT), and the shift to cloud computing.


Rocktree wanted a solution that was able to remotely track, manage, configure and troubleshoot their network connectivity deployed on tugboats and barges working around the Asia Pacific region.


With the challenges they faced, we deployed solutions with Cradlepoint, enabling cost-efficient nearshore connectivity. The wireless technology has advanced and vessel crew and maritime applications can now leverage 4G/LTE networks to enable higher bandwidth at a lower cost compared to satellite.
