The IP Company is a leading developer in the field of wireless communication systems. With more than 20 years of experience in developing communication systems, The IP Company has developed a system that facilitates wireless situation awareness. The HNLMS Holland Class OPV and the HNLMS Karel Doorman JJS of the Royal Netherlands Navy are equipped with the Wireless Communication & Messaging System (WCMS). This system makes everyday communication more efficient and ensures telephony and messaging in critical situations.

The right information to the right people, fast and secure on their smartphone or tablet. Imagine there is a fire on board. Wouldn’t it be efficient to have the correct crew members notified in an instant and automatically place them in a group call to effectively respond to the situation? 

All major ship components are equipped with a sensor that sent autonomous status information to the platform management system on board. The WCMS ensures that messages and calls are automatically directed to the correct crew member(s) on duty.
