Benefits of LinkBox+ Network Intelligence

  • Multiband services and priority traffic

    Each network service comes with different characteristics and costs. We’ll work closely with you and your team to design a solution ideal for your needs. LinkBox+ offers Inmarsat and Iridium L-Band, Fleet Xpress, Viasat, VSAT (regional and global), Cellular, Starlink, and more. All our solutions are infinitely scalable, as both user and organisation needs develop, traffic demands fluctuate, and business priorities change.

  • Optimised costs

    You know your requirements and we know the finer details of every network solution on the market. Our engineers will optimise your LinkBox package to provide the connection you need – when you need it - automatically choosing the best network options, with the most reliable connection and lowest cost implications. As your vessels travel further from shore, your connection will seamlessly switch to the best available option, without you even knowing.

  • Always-on connectivity and availability

    Enjoy the peace of mind our solutions provide by knowing your vessels and crews will always remain connected, thanks to truly global coverage. If one connection is lost, another reliable network service will automatically connect, with near-zero downtime. That means less risk on every voyage, increased efficiency, and full oversight from mission control.

  • Cyber security and data integrity

    From trade secrets to life critical missions, no one except your people should have access to your business information, that’s why we take data integrity seriously. Every LinkBox solution offered by AST Networks can be uniquely supported by enterprise-grade security software, encryption, firewalls, and SSL inspection designed to identify, filter, and block threats from malware, hackers, and data leaks.
