KNL Networks connects the maritime industry to the sea of opportunities IoT offers by providing simple, reliable and affordable connectivity through a dedicated network with military-grade security. Headquartered in Oulu, Finland with commercial HQ in Copenhagen, Denmark and sales representation in Helsinki, UK and Norway we’ve set out on a mission to revolutionize what global IoT connectivity means for the maritime industry. Our dedicated connectivity means your connection cannot be used for other communication purposes like GMDSS or crew welfare. Data leaves the KNL radio through our VPN, encrypting all data. Each KNL system is part of a worldwide network of KNL radios, which act as terminals or base stations, depending on their status or location. At sea, or in remote areas, a KNL radio uses the high-frequency band to connect automatically to another KNL radio that has a cellular connection. Nearshore or in port, KNL radios automatically connect directly to cellular. The KNL Global mesh network allows for multiple parties to securely access their equipment onboard a vessel
