Connecting Land-Based Networks to Ships
Gibson, John H.
MetadataShow full item record
Today its important for ships at sea to be able to communicate and exchange information with a shore network, like file transferring, database access, e-mail, web/intranet browsing or video conferencing. Navy ships might even want to send a live video feed from the field. To accomplish this, most ships use satellite communications, an expensive and slow method. When a ship is near shore, it can use alternative methods of communicating with the shore network, which are typically faster and cost less. Examples of these methods are 802.16 WiMAX, 2G/3G cellular networks and Persistent Systems Wave Relay. The purpose of this thesis is to evaluate all of the methods available, in terms of cost, range, bandwidth, quality of service (QoS) and reliability, by an experiment taking place in Monterey Bay. The experiment results are then used to determine which method would be best suited for various use cases.
