Zenitel, an international leader in intelligent communication solutions has installed, together with their partner COBS AB, the first SMART1 Wireless Telephone System on board a vessel. The smartphone handsets handle HD voice and alarm messages over a ship covering DECT network and uses WIFI network for email, internet and apps.
Smart1 is our partner COBS device which is integrated with the vessels onboard PBX via a SIP protocol. This integration allows full mobility of the crew members and allows them to be reached by voice calls, alarm messages as well as emails anywhere onboard.
“Through our close relationship with Eckerö we were able to guide them in finding an intelligent and reliable communication solution that met all the demands of working at sea. COBs and Zenitel have a close history of working together, enabling us to deliver a successful installation onboard MS Birka” says Jörgen Berggren, Solution Manager at Zenitel.
