Buzz Marine launches latest vessel GSM broadband system

Buzz Marine has introduced a new multifunctional communications system for the commercial maritime market, which provides 3G and 4G GSM broadband up to 15 miles offshore.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The new Hubba X4 Duo provides a dual SIM facility and multi frequency options to allow vessels to move between different regions or providers.

The unit comes with a custom-designed MIMO high gain, multi directional marine specific antenna. When in a port where shore side Wi-Fi is provided, the Hubba X4 Duo can also be configured to connect to the local hot-spot, bypassing the mobile SIM cards.

For vessels using VSAT for offshore use, the system has automatic switchover which will make the switch when the Hubba detects a sufficient, consistent signal.

The system is now being rolled out on 16 Dutch national lifeboat service vessels. Fred Olsen ferries, Humboldt Ship Management and Swire Pacific are also existing users of Hubba X technology in their fleet operations.{/mprestriction}
