The JUE-500 FleetBroadband FB500, the latest-generation maritime communication solution from JRC, is compactly designed, easy to install and puts high-speed connectivity right at your fingertips.
The antenna base which is located inside dome is machined from one solid piece of aluminium, making it stable and durable. JRC adapted its proven three-axis control. The antenna size is greatly reduced by using the latest technologies.
Our company's long experience of antenna design ensured the antenna is robust and easy to install. No gyro or GPS input is required and it benefits from having no cable under the radome, which means there is no need for 'cable unwrap' maneuvers to free cable that has become twisted as the device moves to locate the satellite.
These and more features make the electronics and mechanical design of the JRC JUE-500 as advanced on the inside as it is on the outside.
FleetBroadband provides simultaneous access to high quality voice and high-speed data, along with email, fax and SMS messaging. A captain can download the latest weather and navigational charts. At the same time, crew can do all the things online that they normally do at home, such as sending emails, accessing social networking sites, calling friends and family – a vital resource for maintaining morale when away at sea for potentially months on end.
Based on 3G standards, FleetBroadband will provide constant, simultaneous access to voice and high-speed data, capable of supporting always-on broadband connectivity at speeds up to 432kbps and streaming IP data rate of up to 256kbps.
Additionally, it allows users to send and receive SMS messages of up to 160 characters, a feature that is proven popular with crew who are used of texting from their GSM mobiles while on shore.
