Your Maritime Digitalization strategy in a box.
Whether you're looking for a solution to better keep track of your assets, improve your operations, or just ensure that you've always got connectivity, KNL is your long-term partner in connectivity.
Global data - without the limitations of satellite
Data and Email connection through HF
At sea or in remote areas, the KNL radio uses the High-Frequency band (HF) for long distance data communication. HF is a unique radio band that reflects off the ionosphere, allowing for long distance data communication over tens of thousands of kilometers. With HF, you're always in range of our global network of KNL base stations.
KNL HF is an always-on connection. Just turn the radio on, and your team has access to your fleet, anywhere in the world.
While in range at port or up to 30km from the coast, the KNL Radio switches automatically to cellular broadband.
With connections in 150+ countries, your vessels have fast access to send bulk data home or connect to the full internet while they get their papers in order.
Regardless if the data is sent through your HF or Cellular antenna, you're still paying the same low rate.
Stay in business, even when your competitors' communications go down.

VPN from start to finish
We tunnel all data that leaves your KNL radio through our VPN, and we encrypt all data using strong AES 256 encyrption.
The KNL Radio is cognitive, meaning it automatically chooses the best possible connections available. Interferance and jamming is automatically avoided by our cognitive HF system.
We ensure you're always up-to-date though automatic software updates, digitally signed by KNL networks.
Fleet Tracking from pole to pole
The KNL Fleet Tracking portal keeps you always up-to-date where your vessels are located, even when AIS is switched off.
Your fleet at a glance
Keep your office updated at a glance by putting the Fleet Tracking overview on a screen.
KNL Fleet Tracking is a free service with each KNL Radio, and does not add to customer data comsumption.
Drill down into data
KNL's secure Fleet Tracking includes GPS location, vessel speed, and heading. Use it to estimate arrival times, or build rich location-based IoT data.
Going north? By using GPS data and HF, KNL can provide much more accurate positioning farther north than our competitors.
