Today WiFiYacht.com and WiFiYacht.net will redirect to here. I am a reseller for Wave WiFi and also may continue to make Custom WiFi systems from the best available hardware … including looking into making 5 Ghz WiFi products for marine. Note that some of the 4G LTE cellular products can do WiFi as WAN/Internet in the same equipment including all the current 802.11 WiFi capabilities. All that is needed is antenna(s) for WiFi as well as the Cellular part. Many current technologies use 2 antennas both in Cellular 4G LTE and WiFi. For it to really matter both sides (shore and marine vessel) need to support the technology and antennas … In other words for 5 Ghz WiFi from a Hotspot – the hotspot has to support 5 Ghz. For MIMO – multi antenna, the hotspot has to support 2 or more antennas and MIMO to support the multiple signals / streams for those technologies to work. In Cellular 4G LTE and even 3G HSPA (UMTS) – MIMO multi antenna / stream technology is already supported in most areas. Cellular is not dependent on what the marinas decide to provide and support. (Marina WiFi often goes down and they don’t even notice it. I was in a boat yard working off of WiFi for Internet downloads and the WiFi went down. I had to go tell them that it had gone down.)
Please contact me if you have an interest or need of Marine Hotspot boat side WiFi Connection Systems. We can also do onboard multi-deck WiFi wireless inside of yachts if you need that. Some products come with inside WiFi already built-in. But that probably won’t be enough for larger vessels. Peplink 4G LTE + Systems can manage Peplink Pepwave Wireless Access Points from the 4G LTE Router. Ruckus Wireless Managed WiFi Systems with Zone Controller are also available.
WiFiYacht.com was a bit redundant and the domain was registered after WiFiYacht.net had been up for awhile. It’s no longer important with all the Top Level Domains these days to maintain a .COM domain.
