Offshore project lands national award for DF Communications

We landed the Best Enterprise Unified Communications Solution at the 2017 Comms National Awards at the Hilton Park Lane.


We were also highly commended in another category – Best Enterprise Cloud Solution – as we mixed with the great and the good of the ICT sector.

Both of our award entries focused on project work completed for North Star Shipping – part of The Craig Group – which reduced costs and improved communications for the client.

We connected 136 hosted IP phones on 31 vessels in North Star Shipping’s fleet, which supports up to 48 offshore installations in the North West European Area (NWEA). The hosted solution can seamlessly connect to three different networks – Vessel 4G, offshore installation 4G and V-SAT (satellite communications). The technology provides the client with the option of installing any number of users depending on the requirements of each vessel.

This project served as a reminder that there is always a need for excellent service and new thinking regardless of market conditions. Thanks to everyone who was involved in this project. We are thrilled to win this award!
