IT on Board

Ship operations and equipment are becoming more and more dependent on IT equipment. Crews use Maritime IT systems to contact their loved ones, and operational technology on board vessels and platforms increasingly uses IT systems to enable communication.

This brings many benefits to shipowners and crews. Never before has it been so easy to maintain contact with home, and automation on board makes the operation of a ship safer and more efficient. However, it is essential that the underlying IT infrastructure is secure, reliable and in compliance with the ISM code.


Network Infrastructure

Radio Holland supplies and maintains network structures that can serve as a basis for the various systems on board ships and platforms. When designing the network architectures the performance and safety requirements for each system are taken into account. In addition, maritime regulations impose requirements on the design and management of these networks as described in the IMO 2021 Cybersecurity Measures, ISO 27001 and “Guidelines on cyber security on board of ships”.

IT Based Systems

Radio Holland supplies various IT-based systems, such as storage and backup solutions, firewalls, satellite communication systems, CCTV, public address (PA/GA), telephone, door access and entertainment systems. These systems can be delivered sharing one network, underlying the network infrastructure on board.
