The shore bank of your IT-network

Computer network on board vessels are often unorganized and badly documented. The great variety of systems on board, fragmentation of different software systems and lack of documentation make troubleshooting a difficult and lengthy process.

Designed to be compatible with all communication methods, current and future, it can provide excellent controlled connectivity to virtually all networks. This includes Inmarsat’s new Global Xpress broadband network – as Orilla can house the Soft Network Service Device (NSD) needed for Global Xpress.

Compact hardware

Port-IT Orilla is housed in a compact pre-configured 19” server cabinet which ensures all components are placed and secured correctly. All connections are pre-made and components are kept cool due to the efficient cabinet design. At the same time the cabinet is quiet enough to be placed on the bridge without being intrusive, but still easily accessible is the need arises.

Implementing the Port-IT Orilla solution will professionalize your on board IT, leading to a faster, more reliable computer environment, while providing better security and more control over all systems on board. Updates and applications can be managed more thoroughly and nothing bar catastrophic hardware failure will affect the end-user work environment in any way or form.
