Boatracs To Exclusively Distribute MarStar

Boatracs has gained exclusive rights as North American distributor of Netverk's MarStar software. The product is a communications interface that allows PCs or LANs in mobile or remote locations to connect with other computer networks and software applications via satellites and mobile network systems, in addition to the Internet.

The program was especially developed for maritime use for systems such as Inmarsat-A, -B/HSD, -C, -M and Mini-M.

Boasting full transmission recovery from point of disruption and offering high-speed data at 64Kbps, the program operates with Microsoft Windows 95, 98 and NT. MarStar provides MAPIcompliant e-mail with attachments to be delivered across store-and-forward packet data systems, specifically Inmarsat-C and Qualcomm OmniTracs.
