How Maritime WiFi works ?

central hotspot server

Antamedia platform integrates with WiFi hardware (APs, controllers) located on each ship and vessel, and controls WiFi usage. Using devices like Cradlepoint, ships and vessels can failover between VSAT, 4G/5G, and direct WiFi connection where available.

While docked, ports WiFi Internet connection can be used as the least expensive Internet source. After leaving the port, 4G/5G can be used within range. At the sea, the connection will failover to satellite.

Administrator can manage all crew and passenger accounts remotely, while the system automatically manages all connections, deducts used bandwidth and time, and takes care of the payments for WiFi plan upgrades.

Tiered plans may be configured to limit daily or monthly usage, while the crew can refill an account with a credit card or voucher.

In case of free access, the Internet can be allowed for a specific time or date and the user might need to wait a defined interval before getting a new slot.

Expensive satellite and 4G connections needs to be carefully managed at the sea or at the ports.

Our system can provide reliable WiFi management of the crew devices, set limits on the WiFi usage and provide either free or paid subscription in order to carefully manage expenses.

While at the sea, the system can grant defined Internet limits at specific prices that correlate to the satellite cost.

At the ports, the system will use 4G/5G to share the Internet to the vessel crew.
