An important part of this is providing on board services to the crew, passengers and ship operations. In order to facilitate the MarCom project will propose a Generic Scalable Service Platform to handle the ?nuts-and-bolts? of communication. Development of this platform presents a series of challenges and considerations presented in this paper. In this paper we will indicate what challenges and possibilities this implicates for a solution for On Board LAN (Local Area Network), SOA (a WebService Oriented Architechture), and wireless communication.}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Communication, Communication at Sea, Communication Technology, Maritime Communication, Local Area Network (LAN), Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN), NMEA Message, Satellite Communications} }
