Navarino upgrades Spectrum to simplify IT network management

Navarino has introduced several new key features to its software suite, Spectrum, to help maritime IT managers simplify the way they work.

Spectrum offers IT managers a centralised platform for remote monitoring, maintenance and management of the entire IT and connectivity infrastructure onboard. This includes network devices, satellite terminals, operating systems, applications and security measures.

Spectrum has introduced:

Update manager

Spectrum allows maritime IT managers to download updates and patches that are automatically deployed to all computers onboard, rather than having to individually download them to each piece of IT infrastructure.

Furthermore, updates and patches are downloaded only once and then deployed across the vessel, rather than having to be downloaded multiple times by each onboard computer, resulting in a highly efficient solution that saves both time and bandwidth.

Risk management reporting tools

Spectrum's Risk Management Reporting Tool is based around the Bureau Veritas NR659 rules on Cyber Security for Maritime Units. It automatically populates all the onboard network-enabled equipment to provide a complete picture of the equipment, software catalogue and network topology and includes equipment that is connected to both the vessels’ IT network as well as OT assets.

This information is then available to download and print in a complete report that helps vessels comply with the inventory reports needed for the new IMO 2021 cyber risk requirements and which captain’s can easily print out to provide the most updated documentation for inspectors.

Customisable network usage

Spectrum allows IT managers to choose which connectivity network to use to download files and when, meaning they can schedule downloads using only the most cost-effective bandwidth option and ensure downloads do not occur during busy times onboard to avoid disruption.

Navarino’s product manager Nikolas Papanikolaou, said: “As with all Navarino technology services, Spectrum is constantly updated based on feedback from its users. Easily deployed to any Infinity units, Spectrum is here to help our customers work smarter and we welcome any ideas for additional functionalities that they may have to help them achieve a better way of working.”
