INFINITY SHIP CLOUD SERVICE
B⋮CONNECT is the Böning solution for the current demand of monitoring and control vessels remotely, and being able to go back in time, and see past data without having to be present on board.
HOW DOES IT
The B⋮CONNECT Gateway must be installed onboard the vessel, communicating with the existing vessel monitoring system (Böning or third-party) and with the internet (via 4G or the boat LAN switch). Data is transmitted to B⋮CONNECT Cloud Service and immediately becomes available for the user to access via PC/Laptop browser, cellphone, or tablet. (SimCard to be provided by customer).
Alternatively to the 4G LTE connection (AT&T and T-Mobile compatible), the B⋮CONNECT Gateway can also be connected to the boat internet (for example, satellite or the marina wi-fi) via the boat network switch or router.
When no internet connection is available, the B⋮CONNECT will store up to 70 Mb of information in its internal data buffer, and transmit the saved data when the connection is reestablished.
The B⋮CONNECT can get the latitude/longitude information from its external GPS antenna or be connected to the boat NMEA Networks, through the Böning AHD-DPU 9 module.
HOW TO SEE
