Wireless & networking firm Cogent Distribution launches connectivity solutions for the maritime sector

Berkshire-based Cogent Distribution Ltd, active members of trade organisation UK Ports, are poised to assist ports and harbours, marinas, ferry operators and system integrators in finding and deploying the very best connectivity technologies for digitalisation and automation projects.

Cogent Distribution Ltd is a fast-growing supplier of premium wireless and connectivity products, and the company is renowned for its value-added solutions design and consultancy services to projects of all sizes.

The maritime sector is looking to digitalisation and automation technologies for better ways to improve productivity, increase efficiency, enhance safety and security, whilst reducing costs and the negative impact on the environment. Leading ports are proactively evolving into renewable energy hubs, and freeports are promoting regeneration and jobs, creating a hub for trade and a hotbed for innovation.

Cogent Distribution Ltd has therefore developed advanced connectivity solutions for the maritime industry by utilising best-of-breed products from a select number of specially chosen market-leading manufacturers, including RADWIN, RF elements, SAF Tehnika, Siklu by Ceragon, Teltonika Networks, Peplink, and Perle Systems. The resulting integrated product portfolio is particularly effective when used for applications in challenging and harsh environments, with the technologies being deployed either in isolation or combined to provide a comprehensive solution.

Jim Kernahan, Managing Director at Cogent Distribution Ltd, said: “Our team has extensive experience working with the maritime and marine recreation industries, and we’re keen to play our part in maritime transport’s decarbonisation and transition to net zero by 2050. We’ve recently attended events at Port of Leith and Teesworks as new members of UK Ports and we’re ready to expand our reach to more ports and harbours embracing the next technological advances.”
