Meridian 4G is the only technology available on the market today that allows to achieve a truly reliable, highly secure and ultra-fast internet connection onboard superyachts using 4G aggregation. As a result, the technology is used by more than 150 superyachts ranging from 30 to 150+ meters including such notable clients as Dilbar, Eclipse, Pelorus, Radiant, Barbara, Amore Vero, Musashi and many more (references available upon request).
The technology was originally developed by our founder and CTO Julian Clemens to help hospitals transmit high resolution radiology images between the facilities. Back in the days, the DSL connection was slow, and Julian came up with the aggregation as a way to speed the transmissions up. As DSL lines were not always reliable, a backup option using then available 3G connection was added.
One day Julian had a beer with a long-term acquaintance working in superyacht technology sales who suggested that Julian's invention may help the yachts to speed up internet connection as well. Julian researched the specifics of the constantly moving vessels and came up with the first prototype in 2012.
By installing it onboard initial superyacht clients Julian was able to finetune the aggregator to accommodate changing cellular networks, security requirements and country-specific IP addresses. As a result, the technology has been quickly adopted by the world's largest superyachts as their primary source of internet onboard, allowing to significantly reduce VSAT costs.
Initially introduced to the market as CELLweaver Julian's technology is now exclusively distributed by Meridian 4G.
Julian remains the technical brain behind our unique technology working on its continuous development. Stay tuned for the upcoming release of our WORLD unit that will cover EMEA, Americas and Asia frequencies with one aggregator.
Interview with the inventor of the technology
"With 150 yachts in the portfolio, such as Eclipse, Dilbar, Pelorus, Ona, Barbara and Radiant the Meridian 4G system is changing the game in terms of security, speed and reliability and making VSAT standard connection a thing of the past."
