Radio Over Internet Protocol (ROIP) System

Radio Over Internet Protocol (ROIP) System:

In view of a much needed solution for providing effective long range Marine communication, the Radio over Internet Protocol (ROIP) System at Syama Prasad Mookerjee Port, Kolkata (SMP, Kolkata), was inaugurated.

  • ROIP system is being introduced as a marine communication mode, for the first time in any Major Indian Port.
  • It shall cover the entire Hugli river Estuary from Kolkata to Sandheads, having base stations at 4 Locations.
  • With this facility, vessels at Sandheads can be directly communicated via Radio, from Kolkata, specially during storms and inclement weather.
  • Radio over Internet Protocol, or RoIP, is similar to Voice over IP (VoIP), but augments two-way radio communications rather than telephone calls.
