Purpose-built solutions for high-speed IP communications and data are critical for maritime organizations. From interfleet communications deployment, to the re-transmission of satellite up-links across the entire fleet, BATS delivers cutting edge auto-align & tracking solutions to maritime entities across the globe.
Cruise, yacht, and ferry operators rely heavily on connectivity to run backend systems, communicate with operations centers, and provide internet access and other features while out at sea. The relatively high cost versus capability of existing satellite links coupled with the rising use of smart devices while at sea pose a paradox for many operators. BATS works with operators to deliver a unique auto-align & tracking hybrid communications and data solution that increases quality and reduces cost.
BATS technology, which is used to augment existing satellite infrastructure, provides reliable, optimized, and stable connections that allow passengers and crew to communicate, browse the web, or consume their favorite content – all without timeouts or crashes. With BATS’ unique ability to connect with other BATS-enabled access points along shorelines or in-port, BATS connectivity provides users with a secure, high-capacity link, allowing passengers to take their favorite devices with them, even as they move away from land.
Maritime excavation entities, such as dredge operators need access to communications and data to minimize downtime, while increasing efficiency. Operators are often tasked with the challenge of enabling communications in difficult or remote environments, while still needing access to large bandwidth production data; such as survey files or live feed HD video.
BATS technology is ideal for delivering data and communications in industrial applications, due to its ability to give technicians flexibility in setting up wireless links to synchronize data while within the fleet, or re-transmit back to the operations center on shore.
With the use of BATS systems, operators can efficiently process data while on shore, limiting downtime and enabling excavators to make faster decisions.
Commercial shipping companies need access to communications and data to reduce time while in-port, while increasing efficiency. Operators are often tasked with the challenge of getting crew and cargo safely on and off vessel, while minimizing time associated with administrative duties.
BATS technology is ideal for delivering data and communications in commercial shipping applications, due to its ability to give technicians flexibility in setting up wireless links to synchronize data and provide communications while in or near-port.
With the use of BATS systems, operators can efficiently process ship manifests and bills of lading from offshore to ports, therefore ensuring the synchronization of accurate information, preparing administrative leads on land, and initializing the queuing process. With the addition of BATS technology, shipping vessels are able to dramatically reduce their in-port time, as well as offload critical cargo faster, thereby expediting the shipping process.
Support operators lean heavily on communications links to synchronize shipments, communicate while at sea, and maintain crew comfort. Organizations operating in the support/supply space need reliable, high-speed communications solutions that are both flexible and hardened for extreme maritime environments.
Whether its providing shipping manifests, or synchronizing data across the sea-based network; BATS delivers solutions that operate in the toughest environments, allowing operators access to communications and data no matter the scenario.
