Real time monitoring & control for Italian oil pipeline


As part of a SCADA modernization project for an oil pipeline, MiMOMax Wireless was selected to provide a network of highly reliable, ultra-low latency links for IG O&M S.p.A by their system integrator, Ponti Radio PR, Italy.


Key challenges

Hampered by a technologically obsolete radio network with low-speed FSK links, the oil pipeline, serviced by IG O&M in Italy, was undergoing an upgrade to the telecommunications system which underpinned their SCADA system. The addition of new pumping stations, new valves and a leak detection system as part of a 180 km extension project created additional requirements for communications links. The upgraded network was designed to provide monitoring and control of telemetry points along the length of the pipeline and would also link the Dispatching Centre and pumping stations.

The addition of this new monitoring equipment had also increased the requirement for higher data capacity - as a result, sourcing a solution which offered excellent bandwidth efficiency combined with ultra-low latency for rapid feedback was critically important.



MiMOMax Wireless Tornado - offering superior data throughput for narrowband channels and ultra-low latency for real-time monitoring.

Application: SCADA for leak detection and remote-control management.

As part of an upgrade from an ageing analog radio system to a digital P25 system from Tait Communications, MiMOMax Wireless were selected as the backhaul, point to point linking solution for Fire & Rescue NSW.
Key challenges:
The FRNSW requirement called for linking between 45 radio sites located in remote parts of southern NSW. 
With environments ranging from Mt Perisher, the highest communications site on the Australian continent, to flat sites located in remote Western NSW. FRNSW required a resilient communications solution which would connect these remote sites to the Communication Centers in Sydney and Newcastle.
Involving some longer links and, at time, harsh weather, the MiMOMax solution required extensive RF engineering for some sites.
MiMOMax Wireless Series II and Tornado - offering superior data throughput for narrowband channels and the ability for radio links to also act as routers and multicast units.
Application: Backhaul linking via Point-to-Point Radio Network.
