Yacht M/Y Katara, Qatar
124m yacht from Qatar, 60 employees, room for 35 guests
The Voice Wi-Fi network did not work propperly on the entire yacht, while the data network was installed following all rules and regulations.
We started at the base; troubleshooting through real audio video applications (such as Netflix etc). Furthermore, we have conducted tests with Cisco IP 7925 phones over the entire ship.
During the configuration of the Voice SSID, essential features within the WLC were forgotten to activate, some features were not tweaked, in particular the channel plan was a big mystery. In the captain’s room, the signal inside and outside the ship was completely gone for the 2.4 GHz band. Firstly, two APs blew each other out. Secondly, the window consisted of heat-resistant film that gave a damping on the RF signal.
