Senior Network Architect,
Stefano Farris is the Senior Network Architect at MSC Cruises Management, responsible for the Network Design for MSC’s new World Class and Luxury cruise ships. A crucial aspect of his role is to create and define the strategy for designing and implementing the network for the ships, taking into account that the network design and projects need to be completed several years before building of the ships. The overarching goal for the design and implementation of the on-board network is to create a scalable, secure, and reliable network environment for the seamless connectivity and flow of information between the passengers, crew, services and the ship’s IT/OT systems. The network will be designed to be flexible and able to integrate new technologies as they become available.
