A variety of service agreement formats match specific customer requirements, such as outsourcing equipment maintenance, planning mandatory inspections, annual equipment health checks, compliance of GMDSS equipment and remote monitoring. Radio Holland showcases service agreement options and examples at Europort. Via the innovative online 24/7 service portal, Radio Holland offers quick service and support.

Showcasing Radio Holland’s special expertise in on board IT infrastructure

For the Australia Antarctic Supply Research vessel built by Damen (DSNS), Radio Holland will deliver a large IT infrastructure consisting of central IT cabinets and various switching cabinets located at strategic positions on the vessel. The network will be used as the infrastructure for various systems on board such as Entertainment, CCTV, Video Conferencing, IP Telephony and Narrow Casting. A large compute and storage array will be used to store scientific data and process this data on board. The IT network is designed to be resilient and operate under tough conditions and is equipped with a remote monitoring service by Radio Holland, overseeing the health of the network. This three year newbuild project is exemplary for the fact that Radio Holland provides various solutions for demanding and complex IT configurations and functionality and will be showcased on Radio Holland’s booth.

Remote Monitoring

Remote monitoring of equipment and analysis of (performance) data is vital to decrease operational costs. By monitoring essential equipment, problems can be identified in time and if possible solved remotely. Radio Holland’s strategy regarding remote monitoring is focused on decreasing the total cost of ownership by providing insight into vessel operations and planning action in time. Goal is optimized uptime and vessel availability. Radio Holland monitors the vessel performance via a 24/7 remote support centre and provides monitoring dashboards which are (online) available 24/7, showing information of various equipment and enabling the owner to extract a wide variety of data for analysis and optimization of operations. The ‘Radio Holland Remote Box’, is an innovative software platform that realizes remote support from anywhere in the world, even when the ship’s main Internet provider is offline. The dashboards will be shown live at Europort.

Always there. Everywhere.
