A hands-on BlueTraker installation training in Vietnam
BlueTraker presence in South-Eastern Asia recently expanded to Vietnam where we successfully finalized a seminar with an emphasis on installation training for our terminals.
The three-day event where our engineers demonstrated a complete BlueTraker experience for novice users, from classroom lectures of functionalities of a terminal to a hands-on installation on a vessel with real-time monitoring, was hosted by Nha Trang University. With the help of our tech partners, attendees were introduced to the complete BlueTraker hardware portfolio and were demonstrated the features and software functionalities in real time.
The highlight of the event was BlueTraker terminal installation on the vessel (link to video), starting with choosing the best position on the vessel for mounting the transponder and finishing with a presentation of the installed functionalities in real time in our SecondScreen web application. All installation training attendees received a special Certificate of Completion.
With Asia comprising around 40% of the global maritime market and with projections of growth, BlueTraker products and solutions are in constant demand.

The standard features of the ConBox such as an alert button and information about fishing/in port/repair activity status are still there. What we think makes ConBox 2018 particularly technologically advanced, user-friendly and built exclusively for in-cabin use is having all the visual information at a glance when one needs it. In addition to standard features, we are talking about satellite connection, various alerts status, unauthorised fishing activities alarm etc.
Hundreds of nautical miles in the open sea this vital information does not only significantly improve the overall user experience but inevitably leads to making faster, better and well-informed decisions. With the customer in mind, ConBox can be customized and personalized to the specifications and needs of the respective country regulations. What’s more, the flexible design of the ConBox 2018 allows existing installations to be upgraded in a cost-effective manner.
