Offshore Wireless Networks

Delivering networks to some of the largest offshore windfarms in the world.

Unparalleled offshore wireless network performance and essential connectivity, keeping people and machines connected at all times and in the toughest environments.

Building efficiencies into the construction and operations of a wind farm is a challenge without superfast and reliable connectivity.

At Vilicom, we have delivered high performing, secure mobile private wireless networks to some of the largest offshore wind farms in the world providing scalable, reliable, high speed and cost-efficient internet connectivity solutions.

We have achieved this through our unique and in-house designed 4G 5G offshore Private Mobile Network Service – GIGAWAVE - which, based on the latest Cloud Network techniques, combines the reliability of always on-IT systems with new innovations in the field of Open RAN and Core Network Function Virtualization.

Vilicom’s GIGAWAVE network delivers unrivalled performance and vital connectivity keeping people and machines connected in some of the most demanding environments. Our offshore transmission network has been designed specifically to be reliable despite the remote locations.

Delivering these networks to operating sea vessels

 

Acutely aware of the hundreds of people at sea at any one time – and particularly during an offshore wind construction phase – Vilicom’s GIGAWAVE provides network connectivity to all project operating sea vessels and provides functionality that enables communication not only between workers at sea but also communication back home and for use in leisure time.

 

4G 5G Offshore Mobile Private Networks (MPN)

Vilicom is building reliable, secure and high speed GIGAWAVE networks across the globe, in the most demanding environments for essential applications that keep people and machines connected.

Built using internationally recognized standards – and where the most competitive Open RAN vendors have been selected – GIGAWAVE is a fully managed, carrier grade network that delivers low-cost wireless network ownership.

GIGAWAVE is implemented in a system of virtual networks that implement both 4G and 5G core functions. This gives customers the reassurance that the network caters for devices that already support 5G, whilst also supporting devices that only support up to 4G technologies.

Vilicom’s GIGAWAVE wireless technology provides customers with the certainty of high speed and extensive capacity – widely supported by 4G and 5G devices – that can scale as and when your requirements change.
