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.
Leverage Vodafone Maritime Coverage Map
As our maritime customer, you can use our interactive Maritime Coverage Map via your reporting portal to check and plan your coverage possibilities and reinforce your value propositions.
Our unparalleled, innovative solution provides you near-shore coverage information with connection quality data generated by vessels using Vodafone Voice and Roaming Services maritime product.
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.
