Maritime Connectivity Platform
A decentralised platform facilitating secure and reliable information exchange
within the maritime domain and beyond
Another successful MCP seminar concluded
The MCP seminar on the Maritime Messaging Service (MMS) was successfully held at the IALA HQ on the 30th of September. An overall introduction was given to the MCP and the MCP consortium after which a detailed explanation of the MMS functionality and architecture was delivered. Finally an interactive demonstration was made, in which the various features of MMS was demonstrated, including direct messaging (using MRN as addresses), subscription and multicasting – where the audience was also invited to try out the system.
The presentations of the seminar are located here – and it is envisioned that MMS will relatively soon be made available as part of the MCP public demonstrator provided by members of the MCP consortium.
MCP consortium strengthened with new host members
The information exchanged can be almost of any nature, ranging from private confidential information between a vessel and the shore office of the shipowner, to public information provided by authorities, such as the provision of navigational warnings.
