Crew calling service (PINs, registered users or both)
This is a chat card service whereby instead of users accessing a shore based platform for crew voice calls, they are using pins that access Infinity to authenticate and operate. Units are decremented and once fully used they expire.
Crew internet café service (PINs, registered users or both)
This is a typical internet café application whereby users enter a pin number and password, to have access to the internet. They can connect to Infinity either by cable or through a local wireless hub (if available). Upon opening a web browser on their personal laptops or on a shared PC onboard, users are asked for identification. If successful, they are given an allowance in denominations of 25, 50 or 100 Mbytes which can then be used at will during multiple sessions until expired. Different denominations are also available upon request, or alternatively, PINs can have a time-based denomination and operate only within specific time frames.

Powerful Module for Crew Internet & E-mailcrew KHV
KVH CommBox QuickCrew is a CommBox software module that makes it easy to give crew members Internet access as well as enable them to stay in contact with family and friends through e-mail wherever they go. QuickCrew's roaming e-mail ensures that crew e-mails are never "lost", by providing each crew member with one personal e-mail account for use on any vessel in the fleet, as well as on shore. The e-mail account will follow the user when he/she embarks on a vessel by a simple login procedure. E-mails to this account will only be transferred to the specific vessel for the duration of the stay. When the crew member logs off, e-mails will be waiting on the CommBox hub until the crew member logs on again during the same passage, from another vessel, or from shore.
Pre-paid E-mail and Web Browsing (Internet Cafe)
The QuickCrew module also includes a pre-paid solution for both e-mail and web browsing. Access to Internet activities is limited to the credit registered to the crew member's account. When the credit reaches $0.00, e-mail applications or web browsing are no longer accessible, and the crew member must buy more credits to refill the account. Refills can be managed by the vessel administrator or by creating an activation code that the crew member types in to refill his/her account. When using the pre-paid web browsing function, the user logs on locally to the vessel CommBox. After login, a status window will pop up, showing which carrier is active, and a real-time status of the user's credit balance. QuickCrew makes it easy and affordable for crew to keep in touch with the world around them while strengthening crew morale.
