Horizon gains accreditation from Thrane & ThraneEquipment & Technology // February 20, 2012
One Horizon Group, has announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Horizon Globex, has been accredited by Thrane & Thrane for its Horizon VoIP PBX solution to be used with SAILOR FleetBroadband.
To gain accreditation, the Horizon VoIP PBX was submitted to extensive testing to ensure seamless integration with Thrane & Thrane SAILOR 500/250/150 FleetBroadband terminals.
It will enable maritime customers to significantly reduce the cost and improve the performance of voice services. The Horizon VoIP PBX allows simultaneous calling for up to eight analogue telephones over the FleetBroadband standard data link – more than any other system today for the bandwidth available.
Horizon also offers users the flexibility to choose from three different call settings for optimal cost/quality control.
Managing the cost of satellite communications has long been a concern for the maritime industry. An affordable solution like the Horizon VoIP PBX is important for oil and gas, shipping, coast guard and maritime patrols, to manage ship operations more efficiently and enhance crew welfare by reducing the cost of calls to friends and family.
