The new standard for seamless communications at sea

When it comes to human communication either on land, air or sea, there should be no compromise on quality.
In the challenging world of communications at sea, Soldecom brought to life a technological breakthrough: UCP (Unified Communi-
cations Platform).
With UCP, all the communication needs of the modern shipping company are combined under a modular and easy to use system
at a fraction of the cost. FBB or VSAT satellite communication systems bring a large range of innovative solutions for telephone,
messaging and internet/web usage. The vessel operator selects how bandwidth costs will be allocated while daily operations are
enhanced. The crew enjoys a number of options to keep in touch with their family and friends having high morale and reduced
employee cost turnover. And of course, crew and vessel
communications are separate.

So, why using UCP?

In a nutshell: you benefit from the simplicity of a unified service providing costeffective
voice, messaging and web usage over multiple satellite services including:
• VPN secure access
• Firewall
• Compression
• Email
• Chat/messaging
• Machine to Machine communications (M2M)
• VoIP services
• Crew Calls and Web access
In an efficient and measurable way.

UCP consists of 4 independed modules that can be delivered as SaaS or appliances.
