A customer (name withheld by request) chose Doodle Labs 4.7 GHz Smart Radios to design a secure, long range (47km) ship to shore extension of the Coast Guard’s terrestrial Voice over Internet Protocol (V.O.I.P), + real-time video streaming network.
Provide a cost effective, and secure wireless maritime communication link from a terrestrial ground station to a ship at sea at a distance of up to 47km. The wireless link must be able to concurrently support low-latency V.O.I.P., and H.264 real-time video streaming. Various wireless communication networks were evaluated, including satellite, and legacy Ultra-High-Frequency (UHF), and Very-High-Frequency (VHF) systems. Satcom systems were determined not to be viable due to :
Alternatively, legacy VHF, and UHF marine communications equipment does not support the data bandwidth requirement of real-time streaming video.
The customer determined that Doodle Labs cost-effective, long range Smart Radio operating at 4.7GHz was the optimal solution to their requirements. Doodle Labs Smart radio offered features key to project success:
Key factors in the selection of the 4.7GHz frequency band for this project:
