AIRPORT CITY BUSINESS PARK, Israel, January 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Station711, the innovative and flexible Mobile Satellite Services division of RRsat Global Communications Network Ltd (NASDAQ: RRST), announced today that its crewtalk solution, a complete onboard voice gateway, is now integrated with the FleetBroadband Multi-voice service. This integration enables access of up to nine simultaneous voice calls, thus increasing both operational and personal communication accessibility and efficiency.
The crewtalk solution is designed to support commercial, operational and pre-paid voice services, as well as an ability to provide the flexibility to allocate different profiles per user and onboard extensions. With the updated Multi-voice ability, the crewtalk will support up to nine simultaneous calls and will allow customers to give their crew and officers a commercial, operational and personal link to the world while at sea.
The combined solution enhances the vessel's efficiency with an onboard PBX, integrated with a crew prepaid solution, providing controlled and managed telephony usage and costs as well as the Multi-voice ability. The solution seamlessly integrates the existing onboard PBX to the FleetBroadband terminal and ensures that all crew phone calls are routed through the prepaid system from dedicated voice lines, or from the PBX extensions.
The integrated solution provides up to nine simultaneous voice lines with FleetBroadband 250 or 500 terminals, and up to four simultaneous voice lines with FleetBroadband 150. Thrane & Thrane Sailor terminal users can create a fully-integrated crewtalk and Multi-voice solution with just a firmware update and no other additional elements required. For other FleetBroadband terminals, additional hardware can be used alongside the terminal to access the additional telephone lines with the Multi-voice services.
"Station711's crewtalk solution is tailored toaddress varied onboard needs and challenges faced by crews at sea," commented Ohad Har-Lev, Managing Director Mobile Satellite Services, RRsat. "The integrated solution allows shipping companies to take advantage of the Multi-voice service to increase the commercial and operational on-board productivity and significantly enhance crew welfare through this proficient solution."
