Nimbus Communications Platform

Unlock the Potential – Stay in Control

As the bandwidth available to maritime users increases, so shipowners need the means to permit their crews to access a greater range of value added and third party applications, while also retaining a practical level of control.

Nimbus from Globecomm Maritime offers shipowners, managers, officers and crew a powerful and cost-effective management platform for communications worldwide. Nimbus manages connections to all major IP-based satellite and 3G/4G networks to deliver broadband data and value-added applications wherever your vessels trade.

Reflecting the trend towards more complex shipboard networks and new satellite service introductions, Nimbus is designed to simplify ship and shore-based communications by enabling users to choose the applications and levels of user control that suit them best.

Use VOIP, web apps and specialist software like Globecomm's Access Chat to stay in touch while removing the administration burden and managing bandwidth.

Optimized, simplified connectivity

Key functionality includes optimization, compression and caching for improved web browsing, a built-in email server enabling use of any email client, embedded PayPal for pre-pay crew access. Caching can be extended to antivirus and program updates which can be stored locally and Nimbus can be custom-configured to enable the integration of third party and bespoke software programmes.

To help superintendents manage network settings by vessel or across a fleet, Globecomm provides a secure web portal, Cirrus for ship and shoreside users alike. Functionality includes selecting preferred satellite connectivity and redundancy, configuring user accounts, establishing firewall rules and managing updates.
