Trials For Boeing's Connexion

... written for Panbo by Yme Bosma and posted on Jun 27, 2004

It has been a while since we last heard some news about the availability of Boeing's supposedly rule-breaking solution. Apparently they are testing it with a commercial shipping company, Teekay.

The Connexion by Boeing maritime solution - 2.5 Mbps to the vessel and 256 kbps from the vessel - is much faster than the most commonly deployed narrowband maritime communications systems available today. This capability will allow users to access the Internet and firewall-protected corporate intranets, send outgoing e-mails or open large attachments from incoming e-mails and get the news, weather or destination information.
