Navigating Lake Lucerne with SpeedFusion Bonding
A leader in inland waterway transportation, the Lake Lucerne Navigation Company combines 100 years of tradition with cutting-edge SpeedFusionTM Bonding Technology to deliver superior service to passengers cruising Switzerland’s Lake Lucerne on its fleet of classic steamers.
Old-Time Steamers Become 21st Century Workplaces with the MAX HD2
The SpeedFusion Bonding Technology links LLNC’s steamers to the back office seamlessly and without interruption. Connected applications, such as POS, ticketing, and tracking, now run more efficiently than ever, saving time, money, and frustration, as well as allowing much of the ships’ administrative work to take place onboard. Tracking using GPS and Google Maps has especially benefited from the high bandwidth and fault tolerance provided by SpeedFusion Bonding.
Each steamer is outfitted with a MAX HD2 router, which can bond dual 4G LTE/3G connections, plus Wi-Fi and other mobile connections, for high speeds and reliability. Communications from ship to shore and ship to ship are encrypted, securing sensitive transaction, ticketing, time-tracking, and other data, which is automatically synchronized with back office systems.
The HD2 provides reliable and secure connections, and all external antennas are tucked away almost invisibly, delivering high-tech benefits without disturbing the look and feel of a steam-age vessel.
