1 From Knowledge Generation To Science-based Innovation Broadband Maritime Communications The Mare-Fi Project Rui Campos, Mário Lopes, Luciano Santos, Filipe Teixeira, Jorge Mamede, Manuel Ricardo 3rd Fórum do Mar, Porto May 2013 Research and Technological Development | Technology Transfer and Valorisation | Advanced Training | Consulting Pre-incubation of Technology-based Companies

2 2 Outline 1.Current scenario 2.Initiatives around the world 3.Motivation 4.The Mare-Fi project 5.Conclusions 3rd Fórum do Mar, Porto

3 3 Current scenario high monthly fees narrowband half-duplex voice comms 3rd Fórum do Mar, Porto broadband near shore only Satellite HF/VHF radio Celullar

4 4 Initiatives around the world since rd Fórum do Mar, Porto all based on expensive and no universal technology most simulation-oriented

5 5 Motivation 3rd Fórum do Mar, Porto Wi-Fi land-sea communications not yet exploited Wi-Fi freely available on land Wi-Fi over license exempt bands higher Tx power, longer ranges Wi-Fi is universal and affordable

6 6 The Mare-Fi project Wi-Fi for land-sea communications Objectives Study Wi-Fi performance for land–sea and sea–sea communications using license exempt bands Extend free Wi-Fi on land to the sea using community networks of fishing boats Develop Wi-Fi communication solutions adapted to sea environment 3rd Fórum do Mar, Porto

7 7 Roadmap First phase – deploy land station and sea nodes (fishing boats) – study land-sea and sea-sea Wi-Fi communications performance Second phase – extend Porto Digital free Wi-Fi up to 5 nm using fishing boats as relays (JANUS technology) – develop Wi-Fi comms solutions adapted to sea environment 3rd Fórum do Mar, Porto The Mare-Fi project Wi-Fi for land-sea communications

8 8 Pilot: land station 700 MHz 5.8 GHz

9 9 The Mare-Fi project Wi-Fi for land-sea communications Pilot: sea nodes < 200 € 700 MHz 5.8 GHz 3rd Fórum do Mar, Porto

10 10 The Mare-Fi project Wi-Fi for land-sea communications Pilot: sea nodes < 200 € 700 MHz 5.8 GHz 700 MHz

11 11 Land-sea Wi-Fi comms results The Mare-Fi project Wi-Fi for land-sea communications 5 Mbit/s 6 km 9 km 1.5 Mbit/s 13 km 50 kbit/s

12 12 First time ever Wi-Fi results are reported for long range land–sea communications 3rd Fórum do Mar, Porto The Mare-Fi project Wi-Fi for land-sea communications

13 13 Economical impact – pioneer digital services at sea e.g., Wi-Fi Internet access for vessels approaching harbors – save money spent on celullar/satellite comms – boost fishermen economical activity – developed maritime comm solutions have exportation potential 3rd Fórum do Mar, Porto The Mare-Fi project Wi-Fi for land-sea communications

14 14 Social impact – contribute to digital inclusion – bring broadband to new users and geographical areas – users at sea closer to family and co-workers aligned with EU Digital Agenda rd Fórum do Mar, Porto The Mare-Fi project Wi-Fi for land-sea communications

15 15 Scientific impact – augment scientific knowledge on Wi-Fi maritime comms – contribute to maritime communications standards – conference and journal publications 3rd Fórum do Mar, Porto The Mare-Fi project Wi-Fi for land-sea communications
