Hilversum, Miami, March 14, 2011 – NEC today announced that at Cruise Shipping Miami, the world's most important and largest annual meeting for the cruise industry, it is presenting a broad spectrum of integrated communication solutions specifically aimed at enhancing staff efficiency and guest services on board ships.
Martin van der Veeken, Sales Director at NEC Unified Solutions for the Marine sector, said, “Cruise Shipping Miami is the number one venue for the global cruise line business. As one of the leading suppliers to this industry, we have been participating to this event for many years, and we are pleased that year-on-year we are appreciated for the quality products and innovative solutions we bring on board. With our vast experience in the Hospitality industry worldwide and cruise lines in particular, we have a rich portfolio of solutions that meet the most stringent demands for communications on board cruise lines and other ships.”
Designed to deliver next-generation, open standards-based solutions, NEC’s applications allow cruise line companies to generate additional revenues and increase passenger responsiveness, while reducing operational costs and improving efficiency of the crew.
Secure wireless communications provide reliable, secure shipboard communications with wireless DECT phones giving cruise ship guests mobile communications even when they’re out of reach of public cellular services. NEC was the first company to introduce a unique DECT Dual Band portfolio enabling ships to use IP-DECT at different international ports where DECT frequency bands may differ. Switching to the correct frequency band is done automatically through GPS. This technology has been installed on numerous (new and existing) ships and is available for traditional as well as for VoIP networks.
Cruise Shipping Miami 2011 will take place from 14-17 March at the Miami Beach Convention Center, Miami Beach, Florida. Visit us at our stand 1101 in the Holland Pavilion
