Three Standalone Maritime Telecommunications Solutions that may also be combined.

1. ITHAX interconnection between Ship Owners, Ship Managers etc and the ship. (Ithax Extension Number: IXN)

The ship becomes a part of the office and is equipped with local extension numbers for the Master, the Officers and the rest of the Crew. They will be able to call each other free of charge globally*. Anyone with an ITHAX subscription will be able to communicate for free with all other ITHAX subscribers globally, even ship-to-ship.

What You Need

  • ITHAX registration, easy and quick.
  • VOIP equipment on board such as an IP phone or an IP softphone
  • Data connectivity via satellite or other (FB or VSAT etc). Connection speed above 64kbps.
  • PayPal account in case outgoing calls to international destinations functionality at low cost, is needed. Charge per second, NO minimum call duration. (please ask for rates).

2. ITHAX Maritime Fixed Telephone Line for ships (Ithax Fixed Number: IFN)

Convert the ship into a land destination for telecoms globally, by assigning one (or more) landlines to it. Instead of calling the ship on the Inmarsat Mobile Number (IMN) that has been provided by the Inmarsat Service Provider, anyone will be able to call the ship on a local fixed number of the country of choice.

For example, a ship may be assigned a US, Number eg +12124449704 and so anyone who wants to call the ship will not have to pay for all the expensive charges of satellite interconnection; they will be paying for local connectivity instead, which in many cases is zero, depending on the telecommunications package you enjoy from your fixed and/or mobile operator.

Each ship may be assigned one or more local numbers from different countries at a very low cost per month. Ships may also be assigned even TOLL FREE numbers in selected countries.

Of course the ship will be equipped with one or more ITHAX extensions (IXNs see 1. above) and communication with the office, as well as, other ITHAX subscribers will be totally free of charge.

What You Need

  • ITHAX registration, easy and quick.
  • VOIP equipment on board such as an IP phone or an IP softphone

3. ITHAX Calling Card/PIN (ICC)

ITHAX offers the card/pin functionality for crew to be able to buy from the master/and/or online, in order to be able to make calls to ANY international destination.

ITHAX Calling Cards, can be used both on board, as well as, ashore in the same manner and same tariffs.

ITHAX Calling Cards may be incorporated inside a downloadable application for all mobile phones, thus saving the Crew Member from entering the PIN for each call.

ITHAX Calling Cards, may be converted to an ITHAX registration as in bullet 1 at any point, and can be carried along at any ship or land destination globally, as long as there is internet connection of course.

Voice prompts are spoken in many languages and can be changed at will, notifying the user for the remaining credit and cost of the call per destination before, and the remaining balance after the call.

ITHAX Calling cards DO NOT EXPIRE and they are charged per second with NO minimum call duration.

What You Need

  • NO ITHAX registration is required, but if needed it is easy and quick.
  • NO VOIP equipment on board. If an ITHAX registration is desired, an IP phone may be purchased or an IP softphone
  • NO Data connectivity is required. Calls can be made by calling a sort code or a landline number depending on the country of call origination.
  • NO PayPal account is needed; ICCs may be purchased by the Master. For direct ICC purchase from ITHAX website, a PayPal account will be needed.

In the case where ITHAX is already installed on board, the user will only have to call IXN “9999” directly from ANY ITHAX telephone. There will be NO call connection charges other than the call termination charges for the country of choice.

No internet access is required, ITHAX Calling Card Server can be accessed via any phone, satellite or fixed line anywhere in the world.
