Protecting a nation's civil order over a large land area is no small task and as elements and conditions change, upgrades are necessary to ensure citizen security is maintained... after all, that is the primary charge of any nation's government.
Advantech Wireless is engaged in such an upgrade process for a country in Latin America (LATAM) and the firm has successfully delivery and upgraded an end-to-end advanced VSAT network solution to an undisclosed National Police Force in this nation. The network, which covers the country’s entire land area, includes Internet for police use and Beyond-Line-Of-Sight (BLOS) for security. The ruggedized remote terminals are able to cover the diverse topography of the nation and accommodate flexible and expandable satellite resources.
In 2007, the customer selected and installed a VSAT network solution from Advantech Wireless in order to offer Internet services to more than 200 remote police bases located in rural sites. In 2015, Advantech Wireless was selected to provide a FTDMA VSAT Network Solution, adding options for A-SAT-II™ and SCPC upgrades and the company also provides in-country operation and maintenance services using Advantech Wireless personnel.
The upgrade started in January of 2016 and included one new Discovery 100 Hub with A-SAT-II™ Optimization and Advantech Wireless’ S4120 remote terminals in order to connect more than 250 remote sites with a renewed network performance. The Advantech Wireless solution also includes versatile and high portable VSATs systems including FlyAway and DriveAway portable antennas installed in police trucks and tracking systems.
According to Oscar Glottman, the Chief Marketing Officer at Advantech Wireless, their customer has to face the challenge of protecting the country’s civil order in a large land area, with diverse geography including rugged mountains separating coastal areas on the Caribbean Sea and on the Pacific Ocean. Through the use of the enhanced Advantech Wireless system, a network node in an emergency site can be assembled and deployed in under 15 minutes and is used for fast deployment of Help Assistance Centers in case of fires, floods or earthquakes.
