The Globe i4 system acts as a Communications Gateway to all shipboard communications systems, including VSAT, Inmarsat (B, Fleet, Fleet Broadband), Iridium OpenPort or GSM/GPRS/UMTS.
All functions of the Globe i4 can be fully configured from a shore web portal, and the system automatically synchronizes connection with the shipboard system. If permitted, administrative users on the ship may also configure the Globe i4 system.
The system offers user-based access control. Shipboard users can be permitted or restricted from accessing the email and the web. All user controls are fully configured from shore by customer IT staff.
The Globe i4 is a full offline email server. User email is downloaded using a highly efficient satellite optimized protocol and is stored locally on the ship. The optimized protocol ensures that if the VSAT is not available for any reason email can still be retrieved using traditional satellite systems (Inmarsat, Iridium) and costs will remain in control.
Satellite Optimized Email & Data Communications
GlobeRydex is a complete software-based email and data communications system for ships at sea. Over many years, GlobeRydex software has been proven to be a reliable, efficient, and user friendly shipboard email system.

The Globe Communications Center (GCC) system is the latest innovation in integrated communications for ships at sea, providing a more affordable means of communication. GCC brings together the ease and efficiency of computers with the reliability and affordability of digital high frequency radio and satellite technologies.
The fully automated GCC messaging system enables ships at sea anywhere in the world to send and receive electronic mail (e-mail), faxes, telex messages, and telegrams through the digital Global Maritime Data Network of high frequency coastal radio stations serving as network nodes and via satellite connections.Advantages of the Globe Communication Center
Unlike other shipboard communications systems, GCC provides two different connections to shore: Digital HF and Satellite.
GCC provides an automated message transmission system, taking advantage of the low cost of digital HF radio technology, while allowing faster/larger message and data file transfers by satellite. You have the option to automatically decide the least-cost, effective way to send a message by taking into account the size of the message, urgency of the message, whether the message can be sent in a timely fashion via HF radio, and the peak/off peak satellite transmission times. GCC connections are always available regardless of time zone or location.
GCC connects vessels to the world from anywhere on the high seas; provides complete messaging and data file transfers to and from marine vessels; is designed for cost-efficiency and easy use.

Most IT tasks onboard a vessel are performed by untrained personnel and can prove to be costly, cumbersome and limit IT productivity. A cost effective solution to this problem is to manage your fleet’s IT network using GlobeSNAP (Secure Network Access Protocol), operated by trained IT professionals located onshore.
GlobeSNAP provides your shore-side IT department the ability to directly connect to a vessel over IP and subsequently control any PC onboard the vessel using a remote desktop tool or command-line interface application.
With ISM and other regulations, operating a fleet of ships today demands large amounts of reports, form filling and data flow between ship and shore. GlobeForms makes this process simple and cost effective. Your IT staff can easily define data entry forms that can be electronically distributed to your fleet. Onboard, data entry is simple and efficient.
Ship owners and managers are faced with an ever increasing list of regulatory forms that must be submitted to various governments, agencies and organizations. GlobeForms gives you a simple and easy way to comply with all regulatory forms needs.
GlobeSAFE (Secure Access File Exchange) provides a simple yet powerful interface that collects information from remote shipboard computers and sends it back to one or more shore-based users. This information may be data files from the ship or information collected from one of the shipboard computers such as system information, registry data, disk drive data files or directory listings.
Gain visibility into and control shipboard computers and networks, reducing or eliminating the need to visit the ship for routine changes. GlobeSAFE gives your IT department remote control of shipboard computers allowing them to run programs; monitor installed software; send, receive, move, copy, rename & delete files and folders on remote computers.
GlobeMobile is a GSM solution providing crew members voice calling and SMS capabilities at rates they can afford. GlobeMobile provides complete flexibility for crew members including: standard voice calls to and from the vessel, SMS messaging, and free onboard mobile-to-mobile calling.
GlobeMobile can be used with Inmarsat FleetBroadband, VSAT and Iridium OpenPort terminals through a unique Globe Wireless built GSM network.
