From Efficiensea2 has come news that the team behind the Maritime Cloud has decided to change the name of the communication framework. Maritime Connectivity Platform, MCP, has been chosen to provide clarity and support e-Navigation going from testbed to real life implementation.
The reason for the change is twofold explained Thomas Christensen: ‘MCP is at a level of maturity where we are ready to take it from our project spheres into operational mode. However, before taking that step we felt a strong need to clarify exactly what is being offered and what is being offered is a connectivity platform – not a storage cloud.’
Despite the new name, the ambition of MCP remains the same. The three partners aim to provide the maritime world with a communication framework that connects all maritime actors through the use of secure identities and trustworthy services.
