Coverage, Reliability and Security for Surf Life Saving New Zealand
With an aging analogue network to upgrade and a requirement for a robust linking solution offering superior coverage, Surf Life Saving New Zealand selected MiMOMax Wireless to provide the links which would underpin their critical operations.
Surf Life Saving New Zealand (SLS) was planning a full upgrade of their analogue network but were contending with constraints created by cost, topography and some non-line of sight linking. Working closely with Logic Wireless, a distributor of Business Critical Communications solutions, to determine their needs, SLS had assessed Land Mobile Radio and Broadband (LTE) options prior to settling on a Digital Mobile Radio Tier II solution. For the linking component of the project, microwave had been considered but was found to be cost-prohibitive compared to using a high capacity, narrowband link.
Due to the critical nature of their operations, maintaining the integrity of Surf Lifesaving’s communications solution was vital – it was imperative that there could be no interference which would impact either the security or availability of their network.
In addition, there was a desire that the new network could be managed centrally and would allow for interoperability with other emergency services in order to share information effectively and rapidly during an emergency.
Finally, the new solution also needed to be financially sustainable both in terms of capital expenditure and long-term operation for the non-profit organization.
