There are many situations when it would have been unreasonable to use wired types of networks, such as copper or fibre optic. For example, it is not economically viable. Or the connection is required for a mobile customer. Or the data channel for a new customer has to be organised immediately as soon as he enters the faclity. Within the range of commercially available wireless technologies, we have a solution for each case.
We have been designing and implementing point-to-multipoint industrial WiMax networks in the oil & gas and mining industries since 2008. For the collection of distributed data at remote industrial sites, we have designed and produced our own product that uses the unlicensed, energy-efficient LoRa protocol.
We divide the development of the wireless network into phases. The list of tasks typically includes:
- radio survey;
- installation and configuration;
- final radio survey.
It is important to take into account national regulations regarding the use of the radio-frequency spectrum. A vital areas of focus when dealing with wireless networks is confidentiality, availability and integrity of data. A shared transmission media requires special measures, such as encryption of communication channels and the use of intrusion detection and prevention equipment. This is where we apply technical competencies in telecommunications and information security.
