The 'Less Is More' Approach To Networks
One of the first things we noticed when we began in Yacht IT, was how over spec’d most yachts were. It seemed the bigger the yacht the more complex the Network had to be. Yet, the majority of users on a boat use only email and Internet and therefore do not need the over complicated and hard to maintain systems often seen. We specialise in listening to our customer and delivering robust easy to maintain secure Network infrastructures. Our philosophy is that less is more, we design our solutions based on the current needs and anticipated growth. All of our solutions are designed with scalability in mind.

Why do we recommend UniFi ? When there is a problem on board the last thing you want to do is to start pulling panels looking for WiFi Access Points to try and see if they are working or not. UniFi enables you to control all AP’s via a web browser. See if any are off line or experiencing a lot of traffic. 
It’s about ease of management!
At M.I  we excel at designing and implementing Local and Wide Area Networks (LANs and WANs) specifically tailored to your yachts needs. Our designers create networks that are:

The real driving force was when Dave saw what had been put on the yacht, simply to deliver Email and Internet. There was enough Networking, Servers and disperate technology to run a modest sized Bank. The lack of standards, the gross over specification of systems and the lack of coherent support capable of managing the global nature of the industry fueled the formation of our company. We bring to the market a company which listens first and acts afterwards. We put great effort into putting as little as possible on to our clients yacht, the less there is the less that can go wrong. We put great emphasis on giving our clients true Global support with defined processes to manage every eventuality in as quick and easy a fashion as possible. Above all, we have not forgotten our roots, and take every opportunity to continue doing good deeds…..we know they payoff in the long run.
Bringing Corporate Standards To A Very Un-Corporate World
For the want of a Potato Peeler….. 
A Technology Company was founded.
Marine Intelligence was founded on a good deed done on a hot April day in Antibes. Our founder, Dave Dempsey, having recently moved to France from Ireland, went shopping for a Potato Peeler. He happened in to the local Nauti Chef to acquire said Peeler. Now it so happened that the computer system in the shop was down, and despite his best efforts he could not buy the Peeler. "The cash register wouldn’t open, the stock control would be out.." the Scottish lady running the shop found every reason why not to part with the precious merchandise.  So, Dave’s wife stepped in and offered his services! Three hot and sweaty hours later the problem was found, fixed and the systems back on-line. And yes, true to her Scottish heritage…..she charged him the €2.70 for the Potato Peeler. A week later her husband called, he was the Captain of a 47m yacht from which they couldn’t send an email. And so began Marine Intelligence. Thank’s Nauti Chef, that’s the best €2.70 we ever spent!
Crucial to the stability and preservation of your Data are regular backups. And crucial to the preservation of your backups is that they are kept in a separate location. Not easy to do when you are on a Yacht. MI Off-Yacht Backup is a service we provide our clients, taking regular snapshots of your data and sending it to our servers during times of no activity means that your backups do not impact  the users on your network.
Our engineers can design, manage and support Database driven applications for our clients. Whether it is a bespoke solution designed to address your particular requirements or a legacy system you wish to migrate and have us manage we can help.  We develop business level applications and  Database driven dynamic websites in-house, and give ongoing support and maintenance.
Collaborative Document Sharing
The sharing of Data and information is a necessity, especially during the Build phase or Refits. MI-Share is a unique service we offer our clients where they can share documents, images and other data with Yacht Managers, Project Team and Owners. 
Over the years the face of computing has completely changed. Up until now it has always been a case of buying seemingly over priced software and running everything on your Laptop or Computer. Cloud computing enables you to use applications hosted online whilst storing your data online also. These days you can access all of your applications and data on any machine with a Browser and an Internet connection.
MI-Share has built in Version control and change management ensuring that all modifications are tracked and older versions are available should you ever need to step back
Email & Web Hosting
MI-Email provides corporate level, secure Email to our clients. Our Data Center runs parallel email servers ensuring the minimum of downtime, less than .1% on average over the past 9 years. Our engineers are available 24/7 to help with any issues. MI-Web provides an immediate web presence to our clients. We can host the Domain name of your choice ( subject to availability ), build a web presence and manage your Social presence as well
A common problem Yachts face is the loss of contact details for suppliers, phone numbers, emails etc. We provide an easy to use service enabling our clients to easily and securely store all their contacts details centrally online. Read only (and Full)  access can be granted to others so that you all share the same phone book. And when crew depart, the details remain

How VoIP Works
Additional Features
Taking all of the concepts and features of an analog PBX and hosting them on the Internet allows for ease of use and a greater level of flexibility. All of the features exist on the VoIP provider's network which eliminates the need for an onsite PBX. This turns any yacht with internet connectivity into an office. With CPBX, a user can make configuration adjustments to their service from a web portal. Also, the crew can exist anywhere but can all be managed under the umbrella of the CPBX system, on or off your yacht. The scope of support is expansive and covers anything that is directly within the service provider's umbrella. This includes all of the hosted features and communications with the end points.
Cloud Based PBX
Also known as SIP Trunking, this is the perfect solution for yachts who are looking for a more localised experience by having their own IP PBX on board. With this product the service provider is only there to send and receive calls to the IP PBX. The IP PBX conceptually emulates an analog PBX in that all of the features and lines are configured on your yacht opposed to in a Cloud PBX where everything is configured with the service provider. 
Yacht Based PBX
VoIP works just like a regular phone with just one key difference - how the phone call actually gets to your yacht. VoIP routes your phone calls directly to your telephone using your high speed VSAT internet connection. You hear a dial tone and make your phone calls just like you've always done. By routing your calls over the Internet you save on call charges ( when compared to a terrestrial service) and have the ability to operate a complete switched service on board your yacht, with Hunting, Call Forwarding and all of the other features common place in todays office.
3-Way-Calling Advanced Call Forwarding Call Logs Call Waiting/Hold Fax-to-Email iPhone & Android Mobile Apps Keep Existing Phone Numbers Multi-Line Hunt Groups Music On Hold

Meet The B.O.S.S.
Developed by our partner company Global Marine Communications (GMC) BOSS is a truly innovative technology designed to give you complete control over your VSAT, 3G, Shore WiFi or any other Broadband service on your Yacht. It’s not just about how much bandwidth you have, it is more a case of how it is managed, Most crew will have at least two devices if not three, Phone, Tab and Laptop, all of which are consuming bandwidth even when you think they are not being used. Updates & Downloads are constantly happening in the background meaning that without anybody seemingly surfing all of your bandwidth can be consumed in “the background”.
B.O.S.S. gives you the power to control this by prioritising who can use bandwidth, at what priority level and / or at what time. By giving the Owner the highest priority level you can ensure that their experience is that they have all the bandwidth for themselves. Put senior officers at the next priority level down to ensure that the business of the boat is conducted at near full bandwidth. By dropping the crew to the lowest priority level it doesn’t matter whether they are downloading or updating, their traffic takes a back seat.

If you already have a VSAT service then you know how expensive it is, especially when compared to your home service. One of the prime contributors to the high cost is that services are priced based on a Global footprints basis and not on a regional footprint basis. Marine Intelligence can offer you significantly cheaper services, with low contention ratios and high quality of service. Our Med & Caribbean footprints deliver all of the features and benefits of Global services combined with great flexibility. So, if you cruise in these regions then don’t pay more than you have to, call one of our consultants today for free consultation. And don’t worry, if the boss changes their mind and wants to go further afield we can swap you over to one of our Global services.
Our Global broadband service will keep you online no matter where you cruise. We provide a range of packages designed for the majority of users, and for those for whom we don’t have a package which suites then we will design a tailored service to satisfy your needs.
