Marlink upgrades XChange to increase operational efficiencies

Marlink has upgraded its Xchange communications management system, enabling customers with the solution to access firmware version 5.1 as well as XChange Cloud Premium, a new service tier designed to accommodate the exponential increase in data sharing for optimising operations across a fleet.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} XChange Cloud Premium is an upgrade to Marlink’s cloud-based vessel data sharing and handling solution launched in 2018. The service offers more capacity and storage volume, expanded file structures and optimised management to streamline and enhance business, logistical and marine operations to deliver tangible operational cost savings.

XChange version 5.1 introduces new features including a multilingual interface and embedded tutorial videos to ensure easy access. The XChange software update process has also been overhauled, with further automation, health checks and status tracking to ensure successful download and installation to mitigate the risk of data loss.

In addition, network management has been enhanced, including a brand-new Open LAN (Local Area Network) feature, which reduces complexity for IT departments by simplifying online access management. Network security also receives a boost, with new features including an enhanced firewall and greater access control to give IT departments the ability to whitelist URLs or block undesirable content with ease.

“As with every innovation in our XChange portfolio, the Cloud Premium solution and new version 5.1 deliver unique capabilities that contribute to the diverse digital strategies our customers depend on for safer, greener and more profitable operations,” said Tore Morten Olsen, president maritime, Marlink. {/mprestriction}
