XChange adds Universal Remote Access feature

Airbus Defence and Space today announced the release of version 3.1 of its XChange communications management platform, with a new feature allowing any device connected to on board networks to be accessed via a single system.

The company says Universal Remote Access will act as a central channel to access on board IT networks from shore for troubleshooting and maintenance, removing the need for multiple protocols and IP addresses and improving security.

“Though it’s already possible to access computers and networked equipment on a ship remotely, our system is the first to provide Universal Remote Access, meaning equipment vendors can provide support for their systems through XChange rather than implementing proprietary systems,” said Tore Morten Olsen, head of Maritime Satcoms, Airbus DS.

“This reduces the number of access points on board, which in turn improves security and bandwidth usage for remote access applications.”

XChange 3.1 also includes a new feature that automates the management and allocation of crew data allowances.

The software will be released at SMM 2014 in Hamburg.
