IoT of the Oceans



As the maritime community enters into its digital age, the topic of autonomous vessels is everywhere. As we rely more on machines to become smarter and operate themselves, we need to ensure that they are given the required tools to effectively talk to one another. Historically, there have been the same few satellite players in the maritime world, but with the dawn of this new era, there’s room for more, and they should be welcomed with open arms. Between, L-band, Ku and Ka bands and other solutions, there’s a lot to discuss. During this session, we will examine how all players can work together to create a collaborative and complementary connected world out at sea. We will review solutions that are coming down the pipe, how they can help with new regulatory requirements, how some can complement each other and debate the best connectivity toolkits available.
