When the harbor managers of Porto Regionale di Locarno dreamed of offering wireless Internet connectivity to boats using their facilities, they faced several unique challenges, not the least of which was the large area the signal would cover. Local IT partner, Sertus I.T.S. SA from Bellinzona, Switzerland made it their mission to provide the yacht harbor of Locarno with Wi-Fi coverage from its shoreline by using outdoor equipment from ZyXEL. The signal would need to cover an area of approximately 39,000 square meters and 372 berths. Thankfully, the hardware from ZyXEL was up to the job. Today, a stable Wi-Fi signal is available up to 120 meter into the lake.
