Telenor Maritime has designed Storylines residential cruise ship ‘Narrative’s’ on board network.
‘Narrative’s’ complex network must cover a myriad of connectivity needs, both IoT and personal: OEMs, TV and entertainment, electronic door locks, the internal phone system and personal device connectivity among many others, Telenor said.
There will be many remotely working entrepreneurs running their businesses from the ship, including Storylines with its headquarters on board.
With the largest business facilities at sea, the ship will be able to offer shared workspaces, private offices, a reception area, conference rooms and event venues.
The expectations for network quality and coverage are very high and the best available service with high speeds that can be accessed from anywhere in the world, including in the middle of the ocean, will be provided on board.
Among ’Narrative’s’ communal spaces will be residents lounges on all resident decks, a library, quiet spaces, work lounges and more.
“Internet connectivity is a key component of today’s society, making it essential in everyday life; both for operational and leisure usage. Therefore, it is one of the key elements of Storylines’ IT projects. Storylines is committed to providing the best possible level of internet access, no matter what route the ship takes,” Dr Krzysztof Kontek, Storylines IT and Telecom Manager said..
Kontek added; “While working on the specification, we were impressed with the professionalism of the sales director and the engineers on the Telenor Maritime team. All the work was completed in a timely manner, and the management is very flexible in coming up with solutions that fully meet our conditions.
“Telenor Maritime is able to provide comprehensive solutions that fully meet our requirements and expectations. The work that Storylines and Telenor Maritime have conducted together thus far has been very smooth. We are pleased to be working with Telenor Maritime as a technology partner for Storylines’ ship ‘Narrative’,” he said.
