This publication was written by Tingting Yang and Sherman Shen who made an attempt to cover the constantly emerging networks of maritime wideband communications. The authors are trying to describe to the readers how such networks facilitate the applications like general communications, urgency, maritime distress etc. This book was initially intended to provide a good insight to the scheduling of the maritime data transmission and to the protocol design for the network that has been mentioned above. The book starts with some brief intro to the networks including their principal architecture, framework and operation principles, and it also includes a survey on current developments in this area. The next part of the book will present the resource allocation as well as the scheduling for the video transmission with the aim to maximize the weights of the video packets being uploaded and transferred. The duet of authors are also proposing an energy and content-aware scheduling scheme for better packet throughput. Basing on the real vessel route traces received from the navigation programs, the results of the simulations are demonstrating the true viability of the schemes proposed. In addition, the conclusions and valuable suggestions for the future researches have been discussed in this book...
