Press release -

Digital Yacht 4G Connect delivers fast 4G/LTE internet access afloat

Digital Yacht will launch their new 4G Connect 2G/3G/4G (LTE) internet access solution at METS 2017.  It appeals to any boat or ship looking for extended and fast 4G internet coverage afloat.

It utilises the latest MIMO technology with dual antennas for fast, long range access and incorporates a full function wifi router so multiple devices can connect wirelessly. There is also a wired LAN port and WAN port - for connection to high power wifi devices or satellite systems as an optional method of connectivity.

4G Connect is available in two variants - the Standard model has built in antennas which will provide good performance when in harbour. The Pro model ships with two external hi gain antennas for exceptional long range performance and is the recommended solution for use afloat.  It's possible to get ranges up to 15NM offshore.

4G Connect has an easy to use interface and ships with a built in, low cost Vodafone roaming SIM. It's SIM unlocked so users are free to use any cellular provider they choose but the Vodafone solution offers the best maritime performance in Europe and is competitive with 50GB of data available for £25 on a 1 month commitment rolling tariff covering 50 countries.

Operation is simple - turn on, connect to the password protected wifi hotspot that 4G Connect creates and your device is online. Digital Yacht’s WL510 hi power wifi solution can also be connected to the WAN port for a choice between wifi hotspot access and 4G connectivity.

iKommunicate, Digital Yacht's universal NMEA and Signal K gateway can also connect to the LAN port providing boat NMEA data on the wifi network for use with navigation apps.

The 4G Connect Standard is priced at £299 and the Pro model at £499 ex vat.  Further details at www.digitalyacht.co.uk
