Hilversum, Miami, March 12, 2012 – At Seatrade Cruise Shipping Miami 2012, the world's most important and largest annual meeting for the cruise industry, taking place from 12-15 March at the Miami Beach Convention Center, Miami Beach, Florida, NEC is presenting a broad spectrum of integrated Unified Communications solutions specifically aimed at enhancing staff efficiency and guest services on board ships.
Martin van der Veeken, Sales Director at NEC Unified Solutions for the Marine sector, says, “Cruise Shipping Miami is the number one venue for the global cruise line business. As one of the leading suppliers to this industry, we have been participating to this event for many years, and we are pleased that year-on-year we are appreciated for the quality products and innovative solutions we bring on board. We have a rich portfolio of solutions that meet the most stringent demands for communications on board cruise lines and other ships.”
Designed to deliver next-generation, open standards-based solutions, NEC’s communication servers and applications allow cruise line companies to generate additional revenues and increase passenger responsiveness, while reducing operational costs and improving efficiency of the crew. Secure wireless communications provide reliable, secure shipboard communications with wireless phones giving cruise ship guests mobile communications even when they’re out of reach of public cellular services. NEC was first to introduce a unique DECT Dual Band portfolio enabling ships to use (IP-)DECT at different international ports where DECT frequency bands may differ, and has installed this on numerous ships. NEC has also made it possible to extend the ship’s IP-DECT wireless communication in the port and at dedicated island resorts as one network.
“In the area of mobility, we are driving and taking full advantage of the latest developments towards CAT-iq. Through dedicated software engineering, NEC is able to offer unique features specifically useful for the cruise industry. In combination with Unified Messaging, Presence and especially Location Detection this creates an extremely powerful and vital offering for on-board guest and staff security and communications”, concludes van der Veeken.
