In this seminar, we’ll review communication options for leisure and commercial vessels to stay connected 24 hours a day via Wi-Fi, cellular data, and satellite along with an in depth review of on board multi-source networking best practices. We will review how IoT (Internet of Things) technologies will continue to impact the connected vessel and the connectivity trends emerging from the helm and other ship systems. Coverage will include the WiFi differences between 2.4 Ghz and the 5Ghz frequencies in terms of distances and speeds. We will also touch on 2G/3G/4G cellular, CDMA, HSPA and GSM transitions and changes happening now. Finally we will look at how 5G will be embraced both globally and domestically.
