Abstract: The main purpose of this work is the design and implementation of an integrated wireless network as support to the multiparametric geophysical monitoring network of the Campi Flegrei volcanic area, in view of the increased need for seismic monitoring which is a consequence of the drilling of an exploration well for scientific purposes. The goal is to increase the performance of the transmission system such as speed, realtime availability and reliability, given the high seismic risk and hazard associated with the experiment. The drilling is part of the international research project called “Campi Flegrei Deep Drilling Project” (CFDDP). For this purpose, in the first half of 2012, it was necessary to strengthen the multiparametric monitoring network of Campi Flegrei, creating a subnet of seismic sensors, with limited geographical extension, but concentrated around the area of the well realization. The data acquisition from the monitoring center “Osservatorio Vesuviano”, section of Naples of the INGV, is guaranteed by a system of radio links on the 5GHz band, due to the high interference in the typical band 802.11 and the highly urbanized area of interest. The subnet has shown a good cost/benefit ratio as regards the transmission, and it has proved to be useful for the monitoring purposes in order to detect in real time possible anomalies related to the drilling.
