Telenor Maritime has assisted Storylines in designing the on-board network and advised on best network architecture to ensure superior coverage and efficiency. MV Narrative’s complex network must cover innovative ship solutions and a myriad of connectivity needs; for internet, equipment, television and entertainment, electronic door locks, internal phone systems and personal device connectivity among many others.
Providing a good internet connection to residents and crew is Telenor Maritime’s number one priority. There are many remote working entrepreneurs running their businesses from the ship, including having Storylines corporate headquarters on board. With the largest business facilities at sea, the ship offers shared work spaces, private offices, a reception area, conference rooms and event venues. The expectations for the network are very high and the best available service with high speeds that can be accessed from anywhere in the world, including in the middle of the ocean, are provided on board.
“Internet connectivity is a key component of today’s society, making it essential in everyday life; both for operational and leisure usage. Therefore, it is one of the key elements of Storylines’ IT projects. Storylines is committed to providing the best possible level of internet access, no matter what route the ship takes,” said Krzysztof Kontek, Storylines IT and Telecom Manager.
Telenor Maritime delivered detailed and precise documentation that met all requirements and exceeded expectations. “The work that Storylines and Telenor Maritime have conducted together thus far has been very smooth. We are pleased to be working with Telenor Maritime as a technology partner for our ship MV Narrative,” Kontek continued.
Storylines is creating an environmentally sustainable ocean residence and a way of life that is attracting adventure seekers looking for immersive cultural experiences on a global scale. With 547 residences on a continuously circumnavigating vessel, resident owners travel the world from the comfort of home. As conscientious global citizens, residents spend ample time in each port and give back to local communities.
