4G/5G for Marine

4G/5G for Marine

4G/5G for marine provides an answer, by delivering a secure and flexible network solution which adapts as your ship moves – changing networks seamlessly. Westbase Networks solutions can also failover to satellite to ensure connectivity is delivered even when outside 4G/5G ranges. This networking approach means your marine workers can complete their work unhindered by connectivity issues, while security and operational processes can also be optimised.


Customer success

We’ve helped to connect 1000s of vehicles both at sea and on-the-road. Check out how we did it and what they achieved by reading some of our case studies:

Svitzer Tug Boats

A robust and reliable high speed connectivity was delivered that enabled Svitzer to manage 430 vessels from a central location.


Westbase Networks 4G/5G solutions can support these use cases...

Primary Communications

On-board your vessels are key, and whether this is connecting a VoIP system or simply providing WiFi for employees, 4G/5G is a reliable and secure means.

Failover connectivity

Ensures your critical systems are kept online when you have issues with your primary connectivity. Our solutions can even work with satellites for increased resilience, covering ships when they’re out of 4G/5G range.

Container and Asset Tracking

Systems can keep your information up-to-date, ensuring the right containers and assets are in the right place, at the right time. Real-time alerts via your 4G/5G solution can also enable proactive maintenance by monitoring usage accurately.

CCTV and Security Systems

Can help to improve the safety of your assets and people; a 4G/5G for marine solution can enable elective retrieval of footage when it’s needed most. Our solutions can also connect to the port’s WiFi for offloading non-critical footage when the ship docks, reducing your data costs.

“We needed something which provided us with stable and reliable connectivity across the globe […] Today we are better synchronised as an organisation, with vastly improved connectivity and better communications with our vessels.” 

– Khurram Inam, Svitzer’s Regional IT Manager for Europe.
