Connecting Australia and the World
Bringing connectivity to the world means designing and building new systems that extend the operation of mobile networks.
We develop High Speed Antenna Array (HSAA) units that leverage emerging 4G and 5G technologies such as Massive MIMO, Coordinated Multipoint, and Beamforming to deliver multi-gigabit throughput over long distances.
To deliver mobile services to isolated and remote areas, we've designed quick-deployable systems that your team can tow or truck to site.
Technology developers and connectivity providers are faced with an increasingly challenging global environment. Two prominent issues of which are below.
Demand Outpaces Supply
With mobile internet traffic already accounting for over 49% of global internet usage, mobile data demand is exploding at a 46% compounded annual growth rate (Statista, 2019). Electromagnetic spectrum, the underlying asset which powers wireless internet, is however an extremely finite resource. Mobile Network Operators are faced with a situation where, despite modest improvements in radio access technologies, creative solutions are required in order to meet demand.
Today's fast-paced business environment is powered by resource-intensive cloud applications. The digital workforce demands gigabit connectivity, everywhere. With 5G frequency bands unable to reach those who need it, and WISP networks too cumbersome and slow to roll-out, the need for a system that can be deployed instantly, everywhere, is urgent.
The Digital Divide
There is an estimated 3.7 billion people, 49% of the world's population, without access to internet connectivity (ITU, 2018). However, nearly 96% of the global population live within the theoretical reach of a mobile network. Very clearly an opportunity exists to extend internet access to a further three billion people using mobile technology.
Network access can be quickly extended using deployable external antenna systems designed to pick up distant or weak signals and either rebroadcast in a local area at full strength, or provide internet access in the form of a cabled or WiFi network.
