2 © Wi-Fi Maritime Communications Using TV White Spaces Introduction Current Maritime Communications Context Motivation Previous Work Maritime Environment Outdoor long range link TVWS Propagation modelsContents On going Work Theoretical Results Hardware Scenario Experiments

3 © 2013 Current Maritime Communications Most common used Technologies HF and VHF bands Satellite connections Low bandwidth and expensive 2G/3G (near the shore) Motivation A need for low cost communications A need for high bandwidth and speed networks Real time data transfers Live VoIP and video surveillance streaming Data exchange between fishing boats 3Wi-Fi Maritime Communications Using TV White Spaces

4 © 2013Motivation Not viable to install base stations in the high sea Connection range up to 100 Km from the shore Transition to digital television 700 MHz band released by analogic television Longer transmission ranges Better propagation characteristics in comparison with 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz No current tests done with this band in maritime environment 4Wi-Fi Maritime Communications Using TV White Spaces

5 © 2013 Maritime Environment Completely different from land environment Difficult to predict maritime state Frequency propagation over water Surface multipath reflection Wave occlusion Blockage RF signal by near boats Boat rocking motion Continuous changes in the antenna orientation and height These factors provokes Unstable connection Strongly affects signal strength Long delays Increase PER 5Wi-Fi Maritime Communications Using TV White Spaces

10 © 2013Experiments Analyse the performance of the 700 MHz link in maritime environment with the following parameters: Range Range – Average distance possible to establish a connection between the land station and the boat Connection throughput Connection throughput – Average bandwidth for different ranges between the land station and the boat. Packet delay and Packet loss Packet delay and Packet loss – Round Trip Time and the percentage of packets loss for different ranges Jitters Jitters - Variation of time between arriving packets RSSI throughput RSSI throughput – Received Signal Strength in dB TCP and UDP tests TCP and UDP tests Analyse the results with meteorological conditions Analyse the results with meteorological conditions 10Wi-Fi Maritime Communications Using TV White Spaces
