Cruise smoothly with WaveAccess:

  • IoT


    Communicate with applications seamlessly through dedicated M2M services.

    KNL FILE is an efficient and cost-effective way to manage your IoT data. We offer a unified service for transferring data between ships and shore. Data of every kind is transferred in a file format that is extremely secure. KNL FILE provides bi-directional data transfer coupled with simple API integration and data prioritisation.

  • Platform


    A range of pre-integrated plug-and-play solutions for industry-leading platforms.

    KNL PLATFORM gives you access to platforms such as Kognifai. Digital platforms with a dedicated toolkit built on modern cloud technology. Together with KNL WaveAccess, Kognifai enables you to optimise data use and perform advanced analytics on big data. With Kognifai, multiple stakeholders can base custom views, services and applications on the same data.

  • Bridge


    Solutions to optimise business continuity through secure, reliable communication.

    KNL MAIL is the secure solution for global email communication. We provide a secure and optimised on-board email service for smooth communication. Emails are automatically sent over high frequency or cellular networks and we keep you informed about their delivery status.

The Technology behind KNL Networks


Dedicated IoT connectivity means your connection cannot be used for other communication purposes like GMDSS or crew welfare. At the same time, we ensure and secure your data by tunnelling. Data leaves your KNL radio through our VPN, encrypting all data. KNL’s cognitive radio automatically identifies and avoids signal jamming by hostile third parties, increasing connectivity and operational safety.


Each KNL system is part of a worldwide network of KNL Radios, which act as terminals or base stations, depending on their status or location. At sea, or in remote areas, a KNL Radio uses the high-frequency band to connect automatically to another KNL Radio that has a cellular connection. Nearshore or in port, KNL Radios automatically connect directly to cellular.

Mesh networking possibilities mean there is no single point of failure in the KNL Global network. If one loses its cellular connection, others will serve the terminal with no direct connection. The KNL Global mesh network allows for multiple parties to securely access their equipment onboard a vessel.
