In today’s highly interconnected and fast-paced world, communications are a necessity for executives who are on the go. While your yacht might be used for leisure and entertaining family and friends, it must also serve as a shipboard office. The Office To Go yachts from KG Marine LLC are specifically designed for business people who need to keep in touch with their worldwide locations while out of the office. You even have the option of installing a next-generation REDCOM voice switching system, enabling you to stay connected wherever your yachting might take you.
KG Marine’s 62’ and 66’ sport yachts include an office and communications facility as well as wireless network. Whether you are connected to the outside world through satellite, WiFi, or cellular service, your yacht is equipped for connectivity in the marine environment, so that you can stay in-the-loop with your business even if you are out of the office.
REDCOM solutions are ideally suited for shipboard communications. Our rugged and reliable communications platforms are installed on ships and submarines, including the Virginia Class submarines for the United States Navy.
In 2008, REDCOM received the L3 Communications/Henschel “Outstanding Supplier” Award for ongoing work on the Internal Communications System (ICS) for the Astute Class of Submarines of the Royal Navy. REDCOM has also been noted for its efforts on the ICS project by BAE Systems Submarine Solutions. BAE Systems is responsible for the overall development of the Astute Class submarines.
Housed in a self-contained, rack-mountable package, the small footprint of REDCOM's SLICE family of products makes them ideal for shipboard communications. And, when it comes to powerful state-of-the-art telephony, the SLICE, SLICE 2100 and SLICE IP are ideal platforms for small stand-alone or remote applications.
In the case of the SLICE, a single 1U unit provides 24 analog line circuits, 4 BRI-S lines circuits and 2 digital spans (E1/T1), which operate as a fully capable telephone switching unit functioning as both a domestic and international gateway. The SLICE 2100 is a hybrid IP/TDM communications platform that provides a flexible, reliable Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) solution while still maintaining connectivity to legacy interfaces. REDCOM can integrate many custom solutions. This representative example shown above is for commercial marine vessels and private yachts.
When space is really at a premium, the REDCOM SLICE IP Micro is the ideal solution. SLICE IP Micro offers all the benefits of a SLICE IP condensed into a platform the size of a hardcover book.
Onboard PCs share files (maintenance library, music database, etc.) over an onboard high speed wired and wireless network (LAN). A TracPhone provides low speed internet access for all onboard PCs. An optional satellite modem and broadband satellite dish provide high speed internet access for all onboard PCs.
Corded and cordless phones access SLICE 2100’s complete feature set including conferencing, transfer, callback, and call detail recording. REDCOM’s ISDN BRI CommandSet’s handset Push-to-Talk (PTT) button keys the transmitter of connected VHF or SSB radios. Off-vessel calls use a dock-side phone line while in port; at sea they use a TracPhone satellite connection.
