SnakeWays is developing a new generation of ship-to-shore communication services using the latest available technologies. The result is a modular suite of services based in the cloud and hosted on board the vessel in the small, light, and low cost but powerful SnakeBox.
The SnakeBox manages the interfaces between the shipboard IT and communication networks such as Inmarsat, Iridium, VSAT and GSM. It hosts the SnakeWays services including SnakeMail, SnakeSwitch, SnakeWall, SnakeTrack and SnakeDoor together with a database storing emails, vessel configuration, reports, and device management.
The small footprint of the SnakeBox, the ease of installation and the smartphone technology on which it is based, makes the SnakeBox an ideal companion to the latest offerings of Iridium and KVH, Certus 100, 200 and the TracPhone V30 respectively. Can Marine Systems is a major distributor of both KVH and Iridium.
“The partnership announced today enhances Can Marine’s ability to serve their customers with a fully integrated, advanced technology solution that meets the current and future communications requirements of those customer vessels”, commented Peter Schulze, CEO of SnakeWays.
“SnakeWays customers in turn will have their individual solution delivered and supported by the highly qualified team of Can Marine. The SnakeWays customer experience will be enhanced through Can Marine’s professional teams and global support services”.
