The digitalization of shipping has started. Its re-shaping the maritime industry and increasing opportunities for development and innovation within shipping. The shipping industry is very important, very traditional, very manual and very complex. The rapid growth of digitalization is challenging traditional ship operating practices, and changing the roles and responsibilities of the shipping industry’s 1.5 million seafarers dramatically.
Realizing the smart port, and the core for this is connectivity. Each asset inside and outside a port, including ships, cranes, cargo, etcetera, is well-connected through smart devices. Currently, there are many blank connectivity spots in and around ports around the world. Dominant ISPs do not think it is relevant, and are therefore not inclined to solve this problem. We do not only think that it is important, we also think it is a necessity. Our company builds carrier-grade WiFi networks, starting in Belgium and gradually through Europe.
