Challenges

When long-standing client S/Y Namaste approached Axxess Marine regarding their forthcoming upgrade requirements, they faced two immediate challenges. Firstly, to recommend the best solutions for a charter vessel that travels extensively, with the need for high data usage across cellular and VSAT. Secondly to ensure that the most appropriate hardware was going to be practical to install and use within the compact interior of this 24M sailing catamaran.

Solution

Following detailed discussions, the Axxess Marine team proposed an Inmarsat satellite system and, to ensure optimum coverage, recommended an LTEA cellular solution comprising Pepwave MAX HD2 Mini router, Balance 210, and a Pepxim SIM injector for remote SIM management and reduced cable run.

Result

The global lockdown heightened the importance of having a robust marine communication system in place, together with reliable internet and fast data. Feedback confirmed Axxess Marine’s upgrade on S/Y Namaste with Peplink hardware delivered the goods, ensuring continuous and stable connectivity throughout their extensive itinerary.
