Unique Historic Attraction
Nearly 200 years old, HMS Unicorn is one of the
world's most remarkable historic ships, preserved as
a museum and visitor attraction in Dundee, Scotland.
It's the responsibility of the Unicorn Preservation
Society (UPS), a registered charity charged with the
conservation and preservation of the historic
frigate as a heritage asset. Matthew Moran is the
Museum Director aboard HMS Unicorn. Working with
Company Secretary Tom Mitchell, Matthew needed a
Wi-Fi solution to support the next exciting phase of
development for this unique maritime attraction.
Essential Connectivity–Guest Wi-Fi on Every Deck
Plus Separate VLAN for Operations
The challenges of deploying Wi-Fi on HMS Unicorn are
unusual, because the museum is housed on board
rather than onshore. Matthew explains,"Even a small independent museum like HMS Unicorn
needs to offer a complete visitor experience
that's connected to the internet. Visitors simply
expect good Wi-Fi as part of the visit.”
"Our new TP-Link Wi-Fi is an important step on the digital
journey that HMS Unicorn is taking to deliver lifelong
learning and engagement opportunities to our visitors. "
Company Secretary, Unicorn Preservation
Harnessing Rich Media
With the focus on visitor experience, Matthew and
the team were developing digital interpretation
resources, including large touch screens on every
"We piloted the concept with a digital war
memorial that gave visitors background to all the
individuals named on the ship. But they had to use
their own mobile data to access it."
The same applied to the QR-based audio guide.
"When people have paid admission, we don't want
to ask them to pay again through their mobile plan
to access visitor information as well."
Seamless Vessel Wide Coverage
Getting good visitor Wi-Fi coverage across all decks
was absolutely essential. Matthew also needed
reliable internet for HMS Unicorn's administrative
and management functions, based in the on-board
"With only one off-the-shelf Wi-Fi router on a 60m
long wooden ship with four decks, we couldn't meet
our own needs, let alone those of visitors."
Matthew and Tom turned to their trusted IT partners,
John Harrison at Harrison IT Services and Jamie
O'Neill at WiFi Marketing for help getting the
reliable connection and coverage they needed.
Following a full Wi-Fi site survey to ensure maximum
coverage, Jamie recommended TP-Link Omada ceiling
mounted access points. He expected that two would be
needed on each deck.
Following approval from UPS, John and Jamie returned
to complete the installation. In just one day the
team installed and configured the access points,
running ethernet cables to ensure the access points
were positioned for maximum performance and minimum
visual impact to the historic vessel. John says,
"I was genuinely surprised and impressed when we
tested the Omada access points in their locations.
The ship was built in 1824 from thick wooden
materials. There's no rulebook for a heritage
structure like this. But the quality of the Wi-Fi
throughout the ship is excellent. You can even get
Wi-Fi on the dockside outside the ship."
"In fact, just one Omada access point per deck
was enough to cover the whole ship."
Unlocking an Exciting Future Digital Experience for
With full Wi-Fi coverage of HMS Unicorn for both
visitors and staff, Matthew can proceed with the
project to expand the digital interpretation
"It's exciting-it will include laser and sonar
cloud point scan-based digital models of the
"We’re planning localised interpretation-using
iPads to provide information about particular
artefacts. We will also use QR codes to provide
access to more insights and activities."
Remote Network Management
Jamie manages the Wi-Fi network on behalf of HMS
Unicorn. He uses the Omada Cloud management portal
to monitor and maintain the access points remotely.
"It’s easy to take immediate action if any issues
arise, so there's no interruption to service,"
Jamie and Matthew agree.
GDPR Compliant Data to Build Visitor Relationships
Through the Omada visitor portal, HMS Unicorn can
gather visitor data for marketing purposes in a
compliant manner."This will be invaluable,"
"People may not opt into marketing when they buy
a ticket, but they have another chance when we
offer them free Wi-Fi during their visit. We'll
stay in touch with them, sending information or
offers for future visits, to build our community
and visitor numbers."
"Finally, we have an up-to-date Wi-Fi solution
onboard-it's exciting! This equipment future proofs and
gives capacity to our organisation to match our ambitions
over the next five years as we expand and develop."
Museum Manager, HMS UnicornSociety
Wi-Fi is a vital enabler of HMS Unicorn's mission. Tom
"We're here to provide a world class museum experience,
to safeguard the future of HMS Unicorn, and to make our
collections accessible to all. To do all this, we need
digital connectivity and easy, universal access to our
resources and information, for visitors and staff. We're
now ready to take the next steps."
The Society has ambitious plans for the future
conservation of the ship. It will ultimately move to a
nearby dry dock and the attraction will expand to include
a new onshore museum. Both the ship and the new building
will be fully digitally accessible.
