Complete data coverage – anywhere in the world
Port-IT offers a unique cellular data subscription called NSDG, or Near Shore Data Grid. The NSDG Service covers all mayor world ports at competitive rates, including South Africa and 100% of Europe, UK, US and Asian ports.
NSDG is updated monthly to include new areas to cover, and to improve quality of the terrestrial links. This is done automatically, mutations are performed shore-side and do not require any changes to the SIM card or devices onboard.
Business case studies showed vessels stay near shore about 12 days a month. The high speeds and bandwidth of the NSDG network can be used for vessel maintenance or even for crew data, offering them higher speeds at much lower costs.
The NSDG service can easily be combined with Port-IT Crew Wi-Fi to record how much data is consumed by each user to make end of month billing a breeze. The NSDG service is charged monthly, post-usage, per vessel. There is no minimum NSDG subscription term.
The Port-IT webportal can be used to easily operate all services, you can set hard data limits or percentage based alerts to easily see how much data the vessel is using.
