Vessel Insight enables customers to:
The service consists of both software and hardware which is installed on board the vessel.
Vessel Insight dashboards and applications are provided as Software as a Service (SAAS) and are accessible via a web browser. Users will be able to start all applications from .kognif.ai. The applications are built using modern technology and run on the Kognifai Platform. The Kognifai Platform is a digital platform consisting of a set of technology components – managed as a common entity – on which digital products and services can be built and managed. The platform backend and cloud infrastructure are based on Microsoft Azure.
Vessel Insight uses maritime approved hardware. The hardware provided as part of the service for installation on board the vessel includes:
A summary of the requirements for using the service is stated below.
Upon onboarding the hardware components of the service, a “Network information request form” will be provided to capture details and necessary information to configure the components.
Below is an overview, describing the necessary network and port configurations required for the service.
The following openings are required in the ship firewall:
|EPS (Option if direct internet link)||IP||50|
|IoT – AMQP||TCP||5671|
Also, if DHCP cannot be provided, static IP Information for the WAN link must be provided, like Host IP address, Network mask, and Default Gateway.
Accessing Vessel Insight
The Kognifai Platform is built on top of the public cloud solution as offered by Microsoft Azure. Azure data centers are used for processing and storage of data. The datacenters are operated to conform with industry standards for physical security, compliance, reliability and audited for compliance with ISO27001 and ISO 27018 standards on a yearly basis.
Location for customer data is on Azure European datacenters.
If there is a need for terminating the use of the service, data export and data cleanup can be initiated by submitting a ticket to Kongsberg support.
Access to the service is provided through kognif.ai over the open internet. The URL will be https://*.kognif.ai where the subdomain address (*) will be assigned to the customer when subscribing to the service.
Vessel Insight supports the following browsers:
Cybersecurity is a key aspect of the Kognifai Platform. Access to the service is limited to authenticated and authorized end users. Vessel Insight uses Kognifai ID for providing user authentication through federation with Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) for single sign -on scenarios. Azure AD is a broadly used and highly secure framework for authenticating users, which provides configurable controls for accessing the service, e.g. Multi-Factor Authentication.
The Vessel Insight service is delivered with a pre-defined set of features, providing instant value and short time-to-market. However, if customizations are needed beyond the standard service, Kongsberg Digital can offer a highly professional team to accommodate the needs. Onboarding to this offer is subject to be agreed upon in a case-by-case manner.
