M2MBlue is an official partner of team Brunel during the Volvo Ocean Race 2017-18. The most experienced sailor of the Volvo Ocean Race ever known, Bouwe Bekking, is leading the Brunel team. Through this partnership M2MBlue is entering the sailing sport and wants to make a contribution towards the biggest global sailing event.
M2MBlue is the connectivity specialist and by partnering with the Volvo Ocean Race, M2MBlue wants to present its qualities. M2MBlue supports team Brunel with 24 MiFi devices, in which M2MBlue’s cloudsims are integrated. This enables the shore team to access the internet worldwide. A MiFi device distributes a wireless internet connection (WiFi) whereupon 10 other devices (e.g. mobile phone) can be connected. In turn, the cloudsim is hosted from M2MBlue’s own data center and is able to connect with the MiFis globally. As a result, an extreme fast worldwide connection without a physical sim card can be created.
