Bringing 4G on-board - High speed internet access for the maritime industry

Microwave Vision Group

The expectation for instant communication regardless of location in today’s world is now a priority. The Microwave Vision (MVG) Group is pleased to launch their latest award winning technology - NeptuLink by MVG.

Satisfying communication needs

NeptuLink by MVG satisfies the communication needs of travelers bringing high speed internet (100 Mb/s) to maritime users when offshore. From ship to shore with a 20 nautical mile radius (approx 23 miles), NeptuLink by MVG is suitable for use on board ships as well as various vessels in coastal areas.

Cost effective and robust solution

Until now, satellite internet providers held a monopoly on the provision of telecommunications coverage at far distances from the shore. The costs were significant, at around $17,000 per installation plus expensive data charges. Now NeptuLinkby MVG offers a high quality alternative system at a fraction of the price.

NeptuLink by MVG has been designed specifically with maritime in mind. With reinforced mechanics, it is tailored to withstand the harsh marine environment: high winds, corrosive elements and often unstable ocean conditions. Not just a simple repeater, NeptuLink by MVG houses a SIM card. Through its two antenna transmitter-receivers it serves as a terminal that connects directly to distant 4G networks or UMTS, GSM where 4G is not available. Connection is achieved via LTE bands (2, 4, 5, 13, 17 and 25).

NeptuLink by MVG allows maritime vessel owners to provide wireless access to everyone on board and maintain optimal communication regardless of:

• Humidity

• Sea salt and spray

• Rolling and pitching motion

• Vessel type (fishing boats, yachts, research vessels, wind farms, coast guard & sea rescue vessels)

Award winning technology

NeptuLink by MVG is the outcome of two years rigorous research in which MVG has partenered with Thales Communications & Security, Alcatel-Lucent, Déti, Telecom Bretagne along with the support of two innovation hubs, "Images & Réseaux" and "Mer Bretagne Atlantique" (TMS project).

NeptuLinkby MVG has already been awarded two prizes for innovation in France issued by the Prix Compétitivité mécénat Banexi Ventures, and by the Grand Prix Images & Réseaux mécénat Bpifrance.

Meet us for a live demo of NeptuLink at two major tradeshows:

- Boot Düsseldorf - Super Yatch France - Stand 7AG20, 23-31 January;

- MIAMI boat show - Hall Retail Pavilion - Stand M2004, 11-15 February.
