Maritime Voice Indonesia | December – February 2021| Editorial Overview: Digitalisation is a must to remain competitive and Asia-Pacific is on the brink of exceptional growth and development. 87% of Asia-Pacific companies will be well advanced on their digital transformation journeys in the next two years. Indonesia is considered one of the largest maritime markets in the ASEAN (South East Asia) region and its fisheries are of global importance, employing 12 million Indonesians. Moreover, it is on track to increase oil production to reduce reliance on imports. Particularly in light of COVID-19 restrictions, improvement of communication with OSV fleets will be of paramount importance. With IEC Telecom’s extensive experience in global maritime communications, the satcom services provider has been closely working with local partners to supply tracking and IoT services for all vessel types as well as communication solutions that are compliant with national regulations, specific market demands, and the cultural environment. Innovative products such as MarineStar and Orion Edge V are perfect assets in support of the growing demand for digitalisation across the region and have been designed keeping in mind the specific needs of small and mid-sized vessels.
