• NextGen Marina Wi-Fi

    Beacon has been leading the Marina Wi-Fi market for over 12
    years.  We had some of the first “pay as you go Marina Wi-Fi programs” in 2002,
    introduced the first “amenity based Marina Wi-Fi program” in 2007, lead the
    market with the “Marina Wi-Fi Network Concept” with MarinaCams and Web TV in
    2010. In early 2014 Beacon introduced the Next Generation of Marina Wi-Fi
    deployments designed to match and grow with the ever-changing mobile device


    Beacon NextGen Marina Wi-Fi networks combine the
    latest in Wi-Fi technology and custom development with the experience that comes
    with over 1,000 outdoor Wi-Fi installations.


    What does a NextGen Marina Wi-Fi network bring to your
    customers? Speed. Coverage. Security. Simplicity. Support.  Most
    importantly, it gives your customers a reason to come back.


    Transitioning to Beacon NextGen Marina Wi-Fi: The Beacon systems
    of 2010 – 2013 were designed to service the current Wi-Fi landscape, which
    consisted of 80% laptop communication and 20% other (other being defined as
    tablet, gaming devices and smart phones).  Many laptops utilized a 30mW+
    built-in Wi-Fi radio which has a specific strength of communication and all
    Beacon network topology supported this structure.  As a result, the signals
    that Beacon sent from our antennae matched up with the strength of the signal
    returning from the majority end user devices.



    Do you have a plan for the next 3-5 years? Currently 90% of our
    end user devices are smart phones, tablets and media devices (gaming, TV, other
    media).  This percentage is only going to increase. These devices offer
    significantly less power/performance as compared to many laptops. Not only do
    these newer devices have less Wi-Fi power, there are many more of them at each
    marina than ever imaginable, requiring a dynamic approach and a sustainable
    growth plan. Beacon has a plan for you.


    The Beacon NextGen Marina Wi-Fi solution has been battle tested by many
    of our customers in 2014 and 2015, all over North America and the Caribbean.

    Beacon NextGen Marina Wi-Fi = multiple mobile devices per boat,
    communicating at fast speeds, with robust wireless connection using
    the most advanced radio and antenna designs.
