The conventional maritime communications are mainly based on satellite and HF / VHF / UHF networks that are either expensive or low-speed. With the development of economy and technologies, it needs better communication means in maritime Intelligent Transportation Systems as well as in systems providing general communication services like voice call and Internet surfing. This chapter introduces high-speed and low-cost wireless network technologies for maritime communications, on topics of maritime communication environment, analysis, evaluation and new developments of WiMAX mesh MAC and routing protocols for maritime communications.
