Monitoring a coastline as vast and remote as Australia’s is challenging for any authority. It requires a full suite of data to be uploaded every minute of every day across multiple locations. This was the challenge facing Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology when implementing its component of the Australian Tsunami Warning System.
The Australian Bureau of Meteorology used NetComm to develop a robust and reliable warning system for the Australian coastline. NetComm turned to Sierra Wireless to integrate reliable and advanced 3G wireless connectivity to their networking devices.
NetComm’s CallDirect cellular routers use AirPrime modules to offer undisrupted high-speed broadband connectivity using the 3G network to eliminate the need for installing expensive PCs between the radar and modem. The antenna diversity of the AirPrime module improves fringe performance in remote locations such as the offshore stations of the Tsunami Warning System. Moreover, Sierra Wireless has been providing integration and verification support that guarantee the overall performances of Netcomm CallDirect router.
AirPrime modules benefit Netcomm by providing:
- High-speed connectivity
- Improved fringe performance thanks to antenna diversity
- Proven performance, quality and reliability
- Easy integration
