Maritime Broadband For Great Yarmouth Port
Alec Faccas MD of Intuitive Solution, an IT company based in Lowestoft, recently contacted Symmetris enquiring as to whether we could provide a resilient, fast, and reliable connection for the entire Great Yarmouth port area. Symmetris set about surveying and designing a solution that would work for the supply ships, standby vessels and wind farm work boats using Great Yarmouth port as a base for operations.
Whilst most larger vessels have satellite uplinks for essential data and tracking the crew are left with few options other than patchy (and expensive) 3G mobile broadband to keep in contact with family and for entertainment on the days they are in port. Symmetris launched a product that enables 20Mbps+ (upload and download) internet speeds whilst in Great Yarmouth port.
"When Intuitive Solution was approached to supply a fast, secure, robust and reliable internet connectivity solution for the crew of our clients vessels whilst docked at Gt. Yarmouth our first and best choice to provide the wireless internet backbone for the solution was Symmetris. Knowing that their team of first rate technicians and support staff share our ‘can do’ attitude and our on going commitment to delivering the very best products and services made them the perfect partner for this project." said Alec Faccas, Intuitive Solution's MD.
Michelle Brumfield MD Symmetris 'Demand for the internet is growing at an ever increasing rate and I am very proud that Symmetris were able to engineer a solution for Intuitive Solution which enabled crew members to stay in touch with their families, and friends whilst in port. Symmetris is an innovative company always ready for a new challenge and we are the only company delivering this port wide service in Great Yarmouth.'
