Technology, Communication and Information Systems in Ships
Every day, millions of tourists enjoy the privilege of making sea trips by making ship trips. Also, billions of commercial activities take place on ships. Passenger ships used for tourist activities are huge floating luxury hotels designed for travel enthusiasts who can appeal to all ages from 7 to 70 years old. It stands out as one of the indispensable tourism sectors for travel enthusiasts. Customer expectations are increasing day by day with developing the technology.
Vessels with technology have more than most of the world's travel vehicles, technological devices, software and so on. It contains. You can see the latest technologies onboard. Radar Systems, GPRS Systems, Servers, In-Ship Communication Networks. Durability in terms of working areas and working conditions, redundancy gains considerable importance in technology investments on board.
You can access anywhere on the ships via satellite. Internet access is available on many ships. Thanks to both travel and the internet, social media, business life, etc. are not far from the center of life. You can send a fax. Thanks to state-of-the-art telephones in cabins on cruise ships, they can call you from anywhere in the world and leave a message on your phone. GPRS and satellite systems are constantly changing during trips. Depending on the countries and oceans covered, GPRS provider satellites may vary, telephone codes may vary and access may be provided from different regions using different country codes.
Vessels should be monitored and monitored continuously to ensure safe and secure navigation, especially in the open sea. Satellite communication systems, radars, satellite tracking systems are all available onboard.
The Internet is one of the communication networks that are at the center of our lives today. Persons or persons traveling, working on tourism trips, cargo ships; family, friends, workplaces to communicate with the internet they provide. Most ships have satellite-connected Internet supports called V-SAT systems. Although the internet services are active, certain ports are closed and the access of news sites and communication networks such as Whatsapp Facebook will be opened thanks to the system to avoid situations such as slowness and narrow throat.
Since there are connections on the ships due to satellite communication, access problems may occur due to continuous offshore changes, not at the speed of wired Metro Ethernet or Fiber Ethernet. For commercial ships, internet access can be provided by mobile modems in the ports in that region.
Telephone communication, as well as the Internet, is very important. Existing operators that we have used from time to time can not receive GPRS signal, especially in high seas. Roaming; also called "International Roaming", which enables you to use your mobile phone line abroad through your GSM network; Even if you are called during the time you are abroad during the calls made, your invoice is communicated using the application that reflects the call fee as if you made an overseas call. The minutes and data usage fees may vary with the agreements of the operator you are connected to with GSM operators abroad. It is also known that in the open seas, there may be interruptions in the ocean crossings of up to 15-20 days.
Together with the developing technologies, 99% of the ships will be able to have access, communication, and technology as well as the land-based enterprises. We will stay curious and follow the developments.
