Industry Teams Up for Future Marine Network Standard

press release
Monday, August 13, 2012

OneNet to be introduced by 2014.

 

A group of marine industry experts have contributed their engineering expertise to help form and develop a significant future element of marine electronics, specifically in relation to the transference of data messages over Ethernet.

 

Whilst the OneNet framework is not designed to replace NMEA 2000 infrastructures, it will help standardise the method of transmitting and receiving NMEA 2000 messages over Ethernet.

 

One of the key members of the consulting committee behind OneNet is Andy Campbell, Chief Engineer at Actisense, the market leading marine electronics brand from Active Research Limited, based in Poole, United Kingdom. Mr Campbell explained his involvement: “It has been an honour to be an active  member of this steering committee over the past two years. OneNet® will become an integral part of our industry by 2014, by virtue of the fact that it will create a standard for sharing NMEA 2000 data over Ethernet and expand industry standard NMEA networks in the very popular Ethernet domain.

 

The OneNet project has been developed by a committee of respected industry names, including Actisense, Digital Yacht, Fugawi, Garmin, Navico, and Raymarine. Additionally, the US Coast Guard Research and Development center has contributed invaluable input to ensure that OneNet meets the needs of commercial vessels and national and international standards authorities.

 

The primary goals of OneNet are:


•         To transport NMEA 2000 Network Messages on Ethernet in a standardised manner;
•         To complement and interoperate with the established NMEA 2000 Network standard;
•         To establish standardised Gateway rules between NMEA 2000 and NMEA OneNet;
•         And to support high bandwidth applications such as video data transport, which is not possible using NMEA 2000 Network.
