Revamped XChange

Posted by Irina Tabakina

Airbus Defense and Space has added new features to its XChange communications management platform with the release of version 3.1 at SMM (Note: On September 16, 2014 Airbus Defence and Space announced its intention to sell its commercial satellite communication services activities. At press time a buyer had yet to step forward). Headlining the new version is a unique system that provides Universal Remote Access to any device connected to on board networks or the IT network itself and new functionality that builds on the recently released BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) solution for XChange. Universal Remote Access as a new option for XChange provides secure remote access to computers on board a vessel from anywhere.  It is designed to meet the growing need to easily access IT networks on board from shore for maintenance and troubleshooting.
