CMA CGM Adds Remote IT Management to VSAT Service

CMA CGM Adds Remote IT Management to VSAT Service

Container ship operator CMA CGM will be using remote IT management systems across its fleet after adding Palantir’s solution to the Marlink VSAT services. Palantir’s KeepUp@Sea remote IT solution will be added after CMA CGM renewed its contract with Marlink for the Sealink VSAT services. The KeepUp@Sea IT operational platform will be deployed on 110 container ships that CMA CGM operates. These ships call at more than 420 ports, covering all five continents.

Palantir’s solution will standardise, simplify and automate vessel IT-management, dramatically improving the efficiency and security of the shipowner’s IT-operations. KeepUp@Sea monitors all hardware and software on ships throughout a fleet. This enables IT staff on shore to detect and address issues remotely. It facilitates IT network changes and maintenance such as software updates from shore. This removes the need to have any IT expertise on board, and reduces the time and cost of vessel and fleet IT management. The solution features a unique dashboard display concept, which forms the interface to a powerful, scalable and flexible solution to optimise IT operations.

Palantir and Marlink have been working with CMA CGM for more than a year in testing and trialling a tailored KeepUp@Sea framework for the container ship fleet. “With KeepUp@Sea, we can now support CMA CGM’s network security, efficiency and future growth ambitions in an effective manner,” said Palantir chief executive Arvid Dregelid. Marlink maritime president Tore Morten Olsen said the partnership with Palantir “leverages the synergies between maritime connectivity, IT management and security for the benefit of users of our multiband maritime communication services.”
