part of a marina’s marketing effort.
Yachts often come to a marina as a result of the roaming Wi-Fi
operator’s marketing on behalf of the marina.
networks accept roamers from ATT, Boingo, NNU, WayPort, GRIC,
iPass, and several international telephone companies.

Construction is complex.
Marine Wi-Fi networks require special equipment and careful
placement of antennas to compensate for over-water radio
propagation, orientation of the docks and yachts, and the
materials used in yacht construction.
End users with laptop computers can connect up to 100
meters from an access point antenna.
Anchored vessels farther away may need ‘boosters.’
Wi-Fi’s friendly subscriber plans are completely flexible.
They can be layered to provide ‘free to user’ access for
guests, a selection of ‘pay to use’ plans for visitors and
roamers, plus a dedicated channel for marina operations and
MCC Wi-Fi networks are
protected from un-authorized users.
‘Open’ networks invite intruders to gain access to the
computers of other users on the network.
A significant number of ‘identity thefts’ can be
attributed to the victim’s use of ‘free’ Wi-Fi.
Users and Marina operators are well advised to utilize
networks that require users to be identified by credit card or
other means, and that the log-in process is done through a
secure link (‘SSL’)
MCC networks authenticate every user
with unique username, password, and by capture of the MAC
address of the user’s computer. All
of this information is transmitted via a secure encrypted
Virtual Private Network and verified by a radius server, before
the end-user is allowed access to the network.
