Dualog® Quota Management enables shipping companies to offer Internet to the crew within controlled frames. Allocate a certain amount of free surfing data each month to everyone on board, and then let the crew purchase more if they want.
Bandwidth at sea is expensive. The system tracks each seafarer’s usage, and gives administration a complete overview from shore. This prevents the most eager seafarers from using up the entire bandwidth available on the ship.
An on board mechanism enables the Master to allocate quota – in addition to the self-service mechanism for users.
If users are to pay for usage then necessary information is available for deductions from salary e.g. using the - slop chest method. See the illustration.
Note: This service relies on Dualog Network Control.
