Bringing 4G On-Board - NeptuLink by MVG, Super-Fast Internet Access for the Maritime Industry

The expectation for instant communication regardless of location in today's world is now a priority. The maritime industry has long demanded a robust and cost effective solution to deliver super fast internet to users whether on land, or at sea. The Microwave Vision (MVG) Group is pleased to announce their latest award winning technology to meet this need, NeptuLink by MVG.

​​​Satisfying communication needs

NeptuLink by MVG satisfies the communication needs, bringing super fast internet (100 Mb/s) to maritime users.  From ship to shore with a 20 nautical mile radius (approx 37km), NeptuLink by MVG is suitable for use on board ships and various vessels in coastal areas.

Cost effective and robust solution

Previous offerings were costly, in the region of €15,000 per installation plus expensive charges for calls and data.  NeptuLink by MVG is a high quality system which is available to the market for a fraction of the price. 

NeptuLink by MVG has been designed specifically with maritime in mind, with reinforced mechanics, it is tailored to withstand the harsh marine environment, high winds,  corrosive and often unstable ocean conditions.  Through a two antenna transmitter-reciever, the terminals connect to 4G networks or UMTS, GSM where 4G is not available. 

NeptuLink by MVG allows maritime vessel owners to provide wireless access to everyone on board and maintain optimal communication regardless of:

·         Humidity

·         Sea salt and spray

·         Rolling and pitching motion

·         Vessel type (fishing boats, yachts, research vessels, wind farms, coast guard & sea rescue vessels)

Award winning technology

NeptuLink by MVG is the outcome of two years rigorous research in which MVG has partenered with Thales Communications & Security, Alcatel-Lucent, Déti, Telecom Bretagne, supported by the two innovation hubs, "Images & Réseaux" and "Mer Bretagne Atlantique" (project TMS).

NeptuLink by MVG has already been awarded two prizes for innovation from Prix Compétitivité mécénat Banexi Ventures et Grand Prix Images & Réseaux mécénat Bpifrance.
