The aim of this article is to show the operation of the Bares 2.0 wave buoy and the Bares network developed by HCTech. In the marine sector it is highly important to know the state of the sea for applications such as the construction of ports, the study of the impact of waves in coastal areas, the development and calibration of forecasting wave models, the knowledge of the state of the maritime navigation channels, etc. Some of the great difficulties that exist in order to obtain the information of ocean waves is the high cost of the buoys, installation and maintenance. The Bares network aims to cover areas of high oceanographic interest, the target is a sustainable network of buoys that facilitate the access to wave data. The features of this network are the optimized cost, high reliability and reduced maintenance.
