A combination of WiMAX (the IEEE 802.16 standard) and mesh networking could bring broadband access to a ship on the Mediterranean Sea without the help of satellites. This would make it possible for passengers and crew to connect to the Internet via other vessels that act as relaying nodes to a specific shore Internet gateway point and exchange files, chat online or even take part in a video phone call. The article describes the potential of WiMAX and outlines the operation of such a network.
