AST launches INTEGRA Edge Cloud

Provider of intelligent remote communication solutions, Applied Satellite Technology (AST) has announced the launch of INTEGRA Edge Cloud.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} INTEGRA Edge Cloud is the shore-side traffic analysis and management platform for the INTEGRA Edge service. It provides fleet and operations managers with current and historical metrics and analytics of all communications networks used onboard, allowing full visibility of both system, network and crew usage.

Users gain access via AST’s multi-function online connection management portal, My AST Portal, allowing them to monitor any vessel at any time without having to directly connect to the ship, cutting down on time and costs, and providing increased intelligence for improved efficiency.

It further enhances INTEGRA Edge which allows a ship’s captain to control all onboard communications whether satellite, cellular and WiFi through one simple intuitive interface making it easy to switch seamlessly to the most cost-effective connection at any point in time and save money. The solution also incorporates an integrated firewall, web and content filtering to restrict which data is allowed on and off the vessel, and a captive portal to manage the crew’s internet access efficiently.

AST Group managing director, Gregory Darling commented: “We are delighted to present INTEGRA Edge Cloud at Europort. We are innovators at heart, and we develop our solutions with the customer in mind, focusing on operational efficiency, costs savings and ease of use.” {/mprestriction}

We welcome both Consort Express Lines and Pacific Towing to our expanding customer community,” said Rune Lyngaas, Tero Marine’s CEO.
