Radio Holland Group has signed a strategical agreement with Cisco, with the two companies to cooperate on the development of maritime ICT solutions in areas such as remote monitoring and diagnostics services, data management and networks on board.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“In a challenging maritime market it is Radio Holland’s drive to keep finding and developing solutions that reduce the ‘cost of ownership’ of vessels and improve the efficiency of ship’s operations. If a ship can’t sail because of technical problems, the costs incurred are substantial. Our customers are looking for innovative ways to make and keep the operations of their fleet more reliable, efficient and effective,” said Dennis Mol, chief operations officer at Radio Holland Group.

“Together with our partner Cisco and with our complementary expertise, we can develop scalable ICT solutions for various types of ships and market segments. We aim to translate 100 years of Radio Hollands experience into the right ‘dashboards’, creating useful information which will allow our customers to optimise their operations and to give them optimal support.”

“Radio Holland sees opportunities to improve the unlocking of data on board in line with the trend of the ‘Internet of Things’ and to optimise the data connection between ship and shore. With our knowhow in maintenance processes we are also continuing to develop predictive maintenance concepts.”

This new agreement follows on from a recent initiative announced by Cisco to establish an investment fund in cooperation with the Dutch government to stimulate ‘Digital Acceleration’ in The Netherlands.{/mprestriction}
