Connect your vessels, passengers and crews with Vodafone's maritime mobility solution

The maritime industry's appetite for data bandwidth is growing. All types of vessels send and receive operational data. Once, satellite communication provided the only option to stay connected while at sea. But this is no longer the case.

Vodafone’s maritime solution helps you intelligently connect your vessels, passengers, and crews.

Our 4G maritime footprint covers 93% of the world’s total coastlines. At the same time, you can use our global SIM card almost everywhere in the world and benefit from hybrid connectivity.

If you’re looking for speed, increased capacity and the cost advantages of leveraging a global 4G network, Vodafone’s maritime solution can connect you.

Benefits

With only one SIM, the world is yours

Our global roaming SIM works in almost all countries and across multiple networks, so there’s no need to swap local SIM cards as you cross borders or stay limited with only a single network coverage per destination. Instead, you just need to deploy our global 4G LTE data SIMs aboard your ships.

SIM cards can be integrated with a vessel’s connectivity equipment to complement its satellite system. In addition, by using our single interface, you don’t have to deal with multiple local contracts, top-up methods, invoices, portals and help desks. As a maritime connectivity provider, you can create hybrid offers or add 4G propositions into your portfolio via our commercially flexible wholesale partnership model. This will enable you to reach more vessels and utilise our self-monitoring and remote-control tools for ease of operations.

Enjoy the advantages of 4G LTE and satellite services

You can leverage 4G’s strengths and capabilities near shore and benefit from satellite connectivity in deep-sea operations. Combined, you can have the best possible solution to optimise connectivity speed, bandwidth and costs.

Enhance your business with our data speed, capacity and cost advantages

Ships spend 60% of their operating time in areas likely to have 4G LTE coverage. So take advantage of our favourable roaming costs, high data speeds and low latencies when staying in ports or transiting coastal waters. Read our summary of Vodafone's Near Shore Connectivity research or download our whitepaper if you’re interested in how ship operators can leverage 4G LTE technology.

Autonomous shipping – the future is here

With our global near shore footprint, 5G networks, and world-class mobile data connectivity, we help open the world’s oceans to more efficient and sustainable means of transportation.
