Our range of managed services


Communicate with applications, sensors, and equipment through dedicated IoT services

is a dedicated and independent end-to-end IoT solution that allows you to easily collect data from vessels at sea and instantly access the data real-time at shore from our cloud service. COLLECT uses the KNL’s shortwave radio to send data through a mesh-network dedicated to IoT data transfer. Read more

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



A range of industry-leading pre-integrated 3rd party services


gives you access to a wide range of pre-integrated 3rd party services like ERP-systems, data-analytics, Asset Management and more. The services are built on a modern cloud technology and use the dedicated WaveAccess IoT connectivity to acquire real time data from vessels.


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.
