“We need to collect 400 MB of IoT data per month. We looked at GSM but found it impossible to price on a global basis. Besides, some vessels go for years without entering GSM coverage.”

– Head of Digital Services, Boiler manufacturer

“We budget $5,000 for each service visit to a ship. The visits should be fewer and more productive. A scrubber generates 26 GB of IoT data per month. We need to downsample the data and get it to shore in near real time.”

– Program Manager, Connectivity, SOx scrubber manufacturer
