See advertisement p. 26 PRODUCTS, SERVICES & PEOPLE First UK marina offers Wi-Fi 6 Shared Access, an independent owner and operator of shared wireless infrastructure, has delivered its first hyper-connected marina in the UK. Berthon Marina in Lymington, Hampshire now boasts the very latest generation of WiFi connectivity, known as Wi-Fi 6. This will deliver tangible benefits to the 250 berth holders as well as visitors to the marina. Sam Jackman, chief development officer of Shared Access, explained: “Our extensive knowledge of designing mobile network installations has enabled us to provide a state-of-the-art Wi-Fi 6 for Berthon.” “Berth holders are now experiencing super fast and secure connectivity that allows multiple devices per berth to connect seamlessly with uninterrupted streaming and immediate downloads. The new network is extremely secure, making it ideal for remote working and there is also the opportunity to review and incorporate new technologies in the future as needs grow and change,” he added. Wi-Fi 6 incorporates several new technologies to improve network performance and is especially suited to heavily congested wireless environments like marinas. Berthon now has 19 new Wi-Fi 6 access points giving full coverage to the entire marina. The access points are supplied by a 1000Mbps broadband connection, ensuring that there is plenty of bandwidth to cope with even the busiest of times. Berthon managing director, Brian May, commented: “Everyone expects connectivity in all aspects of their lives now, but we are the first marina in the UK to prioritise this service. Installing Wi-Fi 6 across the marina enables us to continue providing the very highest levels of customer service. We can now guarantee super fast, reliable and secure connectivity for all our boat owners and visitors.” The enhanced connectivity benefits berth holders and the marina in a number of ways. Owners with onboard CCTV cameras can now confidently connect their system, knowing that the signal will never drop out – while the Berthon Marina refueller platform uses the fast and reliable Wi-Fi 6 service to process transactions. The move is timely as, with more boat builders incorporating ‘smart’ technology into their builds, owners will be seeking super connected marinas to make the very most of their boating experience. Cleaning Spanish seas Marina Ibiza and Marina Port de Mallorca of IPM-IMG Group have become the first marinas in Spain to install the water-cleaning robot known as Geneseas. Geneseas travels over the water surface capturing pollutants while simultaneously analysing water quality. It is controlled remotely by joystick and areas for clean-up can be automatically programmed or initiated manually via a mobile app. The robot is powered by solar panels and has a 140 litre capture capacity. – September/October 2021 53
