Port-IT Crew enables Shipowners to provide Wi-Fi service onboard a vessel of any size, easily, affordably, over the web. Shipowners get the flexibility to offer free or paid Wi-Fi services towards their crew members.

Once the unit is connected to the satcom the unit will establish a session to Port-IT to complete the registration process. No user interaction onboard is needed other than connecting a crew member’s PC or Smartphone to the Wi-Fi spot.
The Port-IT Crew internet is organized as a Self Service, which does not require any onboard administration. The solutions may utilize a range of pay per use and accounting options in a single offering. The scalability of the solution allows for multiple access points on a single vessel that may, but not need to be under one identical authorization and accounting plan.
