Axxess Marine Case Studies

S/Y Namaste

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.

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.

Now the crew has the ability to blend both VSAT and cellular services through the Axxess Marine on-board client portal. The global lockdown has certainly been a challenging time and heightened the importance of having robust communication systems in place, together with reliable internet and fast data. Feedback confirmed Namaste’s LTEA upgrade delivered the goods – running two Netflix links simultaneously while anchored off Green Island, Antigua with an impressive 46Mbps down / 20Mbps up / 129 ms.
