January 06, 2020 / IoT News

KVH Industries and Kongsberg Digital have successfully installed their first joint maritime IoT system on the latter’s active working vessel, Simrad Echo.Despite the newly fitted system, which includes a KVH Watch VSAT antenna for IoT connectivity and the Kognifai Vessel Insight platform, the Simrad Echo would continue its normal operations during the pilot maritime IoT project. Both KVH Watch and Kognifai Vessel Insight would be providing an integrated infrastructure for IoT connectivity and vessel-to-shore data. Vigleik Takle, Kongsberg Digital’s senior vice president of maritime digital solutions, said: “While Vessel Insight works as an infrastructure for accessing contextualised quality data from a vessel or fleet, KVH is providing an alternative for IoT connectivity that enables the transfer of data from ship to cloud. We are very happy to be able to offer this as a connectivity option to our users.”
