KNL Networks adds hybrid connectivity system to Kognifai

Finnish maritime communications company KNL Networks has partnered with Kongsberg Digital to make its HF radio and cellular broadband connectivity system available to users of Kongsberg’s Kognifai digital platform.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“One of the barriers for digitalisation in the maritime sector has been related to the high connectivity cost of satellite connection,” said Vigleik Takle, VP and commercial manager at Kongsberg Digital.

“Through our partnership with KNL we can offer the option of a low cost connectivity solution, and thereby accelerate the digital transformation and enable our customers to start to harness the tremendous value that lies in their data.”

KNL’s hybrid technology integrates HF radio with cellular broadband to provide always-on data connectivity when at sea and high-speed bandwidth when near shore, built using a unique channel for long-distance data communication and pole-to-pole coverage.

“One look at what’s offered on the Kognifai Digital platform and you can see how much data ships at sea are producing through sensors and smart reporting,” said Toni Linden, CEO of KNL Networks.

“KNL Networks knows that tomorrow’s maritime industry requires a revolutionary new data solution and services, and we’re proud to be part of Kongsberg Digital’s Kognifai platform.”{/mprestriction}
