I should make a bumper sticker…
Got Milk? Got Marine Internet? Got Marine Internet Problems????
I came across another yacht the other day in my travels that stopped me and told me of their troubles. They had multiple Internet technologies spanning the last few years or more of Satellite, and other Internet and Voice Telephone “connections” – *but* the “system” is a jumbled up mess, he said. Wires going everywhere – wireless onboard that’s a bit flakey – I.P. Address conflicts and multiple boxes that want to be the “IP Address Boss”.
Believe it or not I heard this a LOT. And this is the type of work that I do … sorting through that mess and recommending what to keep (and why) and what to get rid of, as well as some options to make that stuff all BEHAVE and let you have some peace onboard with the onboard “Network” just working. And the options of Internet being as easy as possible to select and activate for the appropriate geographic location where you’re at. And The Top Fuel Challenger … How to use multiple Internet Access “connections” to save money on your Internet and Voice telephone bills.
I often get called in just find out “What all do we have, and how do we use it?”, and also to consult on what should we have and how do we use that? Recommending alternate technologies and systems to make use of cost-savings on both Fast Internet and Telephone Voice Services.
