Inland Marine Operations Connectivity Case Study
SEE HOW GDS HELPS AN INLAND MARINE TRANSPORTATION AND LOGISTICS COMPANY ACHIEVE GREATER THAN 98 PERCENT NETWORK UPTIME WHILE SAVING $70,000 A YEAR IN CONNECTIVITY COSTS
Network connectivity has become vital to the success of the inland marine industry. However, many operators struggle with spotty cellular service as they move through the roughly 12,000 miles of U.S. inland waterways.
The company in this case study had an existing connectivity solution that provided as little as 10 percent uptime in a given month, significantly hindering its ability to leverage modern cloud-based applications.
GDS developed a turn-key connectivity solution that saw an average of more than 98 percent uptime for the first six months of 2021. Achieving this level of availability using only LTE connectivity services is unheard-of on inland waterways
- GDS designed and implemented a dual-carrier LTE solution with dual external antennas, and created a shared pool of LTE bandwidth to support the company’s seven vessels.
- Our turnkey solution includes all the hardware and software needed for connectivity.
- Fully managed, with 24x7x365 support through the GDS Network Operations Center (NOC)
