Optimal internet connection for cruise ships. Due to the success of smartphones and notebooks as a digital travel guide, cruise companies are increasingly demanding that they can offer a good internet connection on board their ships. AnyWi has developed a solution for faster and more reliable internet for Scylla Tours.
This solution is based on its own SigQ router that integrates 4G, 3G, satellite and WiFi communication and automatically chooses the best connection based on availability. This allows the end user to be offered an internet experience with the speed that he experiences at home. The so-called WiFi @ Sea, WiFi @ Cruise or WiFi @ River experience.
The SigQ router virtualizes every connection via bonding to prevent disruptions of, for example, webmail sessions and to further increase the speed.
The next applied innovation is the SIM switcher. Any number of SIMs can be placed in the SigQ router (standard there is room for 8 or 24) that chooses the best connection per country at local rates. This saves high roaming costs.
A SigQ router (pronounced CQ, or 'Seek You') thus provides a much better quality connection for the end user at lower costs.
