GL Publishes New Guidelines for Ships Data Networks

Germanischer Lloyd (GL) has published new guidelines for data networks which are implemented onboard ships or offshore platforms. As the maritime industry makes greater use of automated systems data networks have become more and more complex, while also integrating safety-critical and non-safety-critical application systems. The guidelines are available for download now on the GL website and will enter into force on 1 August 2013.


Keeping crew and passengers entertained

Satellite communications can be a conduit for onboard entertainment systems. Ship operators can use a VSAT link to download video and audio content to provide a host of services, such as IPTV, on-demand movies, news and sports news services to crew and passengers. The next phase in this evolution will be the development of multicasting solutions, where files are downloaded to a ship, or a fleet of vessels, then cast out to multiple users


Putting control back in the hands of the mariner

Manufacturers are developing systems that have enhanced human–machine interfaces (HMIs), while supplying bridges that are integrated with automation and other systems. The general trend (as has been highlighted in past issues of Marine Electronics & Communications) is to develop bridge systems that are more user friendly, with better ergonomics and simpler displays and controls


Meeting the needs for high bandwidth systems

Shipping companies and offshore vessel owners are testing the data throughput limits of current VSAT networks by adopting higher throughput applications for operational and crew welfare reasons. In response, the VSAT industry is engineering high-performance terminals. For example, iDirect has released a new terminal for the maritime market. The X7 is a time division multiple access (TDMA) remote that can reach more than 100 Mbps in combined inbound and outbound throughput
