Abstract
TV White Spaces (hereinafter referred to as the "TVWS") is the radio spectrum has not been used, is assigned to using in broadcast television. TVWS has the advantages of high transmission distance, strong penetrating ability, not easy to be absorbed by water, large amount of transmission unit data, etc., low spectrum occupancy rate in maritime, is very suitable for maritime wireless network coverage. In this paper, the maritime communication system based on TVWS uses the wireless mesh network as the network architecture. Communication access point(hereinafter referred to as the "AP") based on the software router system (hereinafter referred to as the “ROS”). TVWS is used as the distance communication spectrum between APs. The AP implements the data exchange between WIFI and TVWS, and provides Ethernet wired access and WIFI wireless access for the terminal equipment. The communication system uses the Socket transmission protocol to set up the end to the end connection, realizes the functions of GPS, character communication, picture transmission, audio communication, video communication and camera monitoring, etc., using H264 video compression format to achieve smooth video communication.
