SEAFAR is integrating neXat, a satellite communications services platform, into its remote ship navigation solution for the short sea shipping (SSS) industry.

The project aims to ensure uninterrupted data connectivity at sea and to integrate 4G and 5G with satellite communications into an ubiquitous, fully managed connectivity service.

neXat’s platform will automatically and quickly switch from 4G or 5G to satellite as required and will also develop a system that continuously monitors all the communications means that the ship might use at any time, including 4G, 5G and satellite.
