Introduction to us and what we do
This is Alan Spicer Telecom Co. which is a Computer, Communications,
and Computer Networking Service Company near
Internet Access and Connection Sharing for Inmarsat Satellite Systems (Saturn B, Fleet 33, Fleet 55, and Fleet 77)
Inmarsat systems are installed on many motor yachts to provide telephone, fax, and GMDSS Safety functions at sea. Inmarsat systems work almost anywhere a yacht travels with for the most part no action required on part of the crew.
The router can be controlled from any PC type of computer, usually the Captains Computer and/or the Ships Bridge Computer is used as "Connection Control" for the Satellite Internet Connections described above. Special control software is installed that can be scripted to provide control buttons (icons) on the Connection Control computer allowing activating and de-activation the Internet Connections.
Cisco Routers are very reliable. They survive power outages and retain their software and configuration settings. They have no moving parts and outlast other hardware such as PC Computers which can suffer from things such as Hard Disk Drive failure.
Do you need a Router installation for a Motor Yacht?
Alan Spicer Telecom has installed many Cisco Router Inmarsat Satellite Internet systems on yachts. If you need this type of setup installed on a yacht please see the contact information below.

Everything needed will be sent to you and support arranged to make sure that it works on your vessel. Call or Email for a Quote/Estimate on this.
Instructions, Documentation, and Support
I provide complete documentation on these jobs, including a diagram of how the system is connected and configured. Instructions are included in this project documentation. I provide technical support by email and/or telephone for installations.
I have worked on over 20 Motor Yachts in 2004 (over 50 yachts by 2006) and in a few homes as well. The Inmarsat Satellite Internet System is working every day in many of them. In 2005 and 2006 (and going forward) I now consult on a full range of money saving Internet/Voice/Fax/Communications areas for the marine environment. Please contact by phone or email if you would like some advice or consultation.
