Network design for a ship
Posted on 2004-09-28
Does anyone have any wiring diagrams or plans for wiring a ship.
The company that I work for have just bought a ship and they're looking into different ways of networking it. So that each cabin will have a couple of network points with possible wifi in the larger public areas.
The ship has some water tight bulk heads that you're not allowed to run cable through on the lower decks, so the cables will have to be dropped down from the decks above.
So far the idea is to run 1 ring through the ship vertically.
Run a ring on each deck that doesn't have water proof bulkheads but that means we'll need managed switches...
Any help or ideas are most appreciated.
