Regular cleaning of your professional mobile radio equipment and accessories during the COVID-19 pandemic
A number of our customers have been asking us about the recommended guidance of cleaning our radios and accessories during the corona virus (COVID-19) outbreak. It is not fully known how long the corona virus lasts on surfaces but recent tests carried out by scientists show it can survive for a minimum of 72 hours, this study was originally published in the preprint database medRxiv on March 11. A revised version was published March 17 in The New England Journal of Medicine. There are some reports of the virus which can survive on plastic or metal surfaces for up to 9 days.
As we kick start another year and new decade, technology is advancing and accelerating at a phenomenal growth. This technology growth and change is likely to continue for the next decade and beyond. In this blog we take a look at what new technology trends will steal the limelight in the critical communications industry.
A total or partial shutdown of the national electricity transmission system (NETS) is an unlikely event. However if such an event happens which triggers a shutdown, a contingency arrangement is in place to ensure electricity supplies can be restored in a timely and orderly manner. Black Start is the process of restoring and electric power station or part of an electric grid to operation without the reliance of external power transmission networks to recover from a total or partial shutdown.

The evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT) era has opened up to enormous capabilities for traditional radio communication networks to converge with rich data applications and digital communication channels such as email to be seamlessly integrated with traditional voice.
What is the IoT?
The Internet of things is a huge and rapidly growing ecosystem resulting from the embedding of IP connectivity in ordinary devices or “things”. These devices can communicate and interact with others over the Internet, and can be remotely monitored and controlled. The broad aim is to capture previously untapped data from across this infrastructure and to turn this data into tangible insights and actions, some of which may be automated in nature.

Deploying a ruggedised and transportable rapid deployment repeater for the mission critical environment
Setting up two way radio communications at an emergency incident can be a challenge. Incidents such as bushfires raging in the wild, outbreaks of fire in urban areas, occurrence of natural disasters such as localised flooding or emergency mission tactical scenarios require public safety agencies to have the right communications technologies in place before these emergencies hit.
Introducing a cellular router that boasts next generation performance suitable for SCADA and telemetry or industrial IoT deployments
What are Cellular routers?
A cellular router is a transportable device which enables users to connect to the Internet via a cellular data network rather than cables. The benefit a cellular router provides is that they let many users access the Internet using just one integrated cellular networking system. As opposed to conventional modems, a cellular router does not require an Ethernet wire, phone line or fibre optic connection to connect to the Internet. Rather, they are able quickly connect to cellular towers that belongs to certain networks.
