STI Engineering Wins Australian Emergency Services Contract
STI Engineering has been selected as the supplier of high-powered base stations for an Australian emergency services project. The contract includes the manufacture and supply of 175 x 250W paging transmitters for a state-wide simulcast network. Deliveries will commence in November 2015.
Johan Svean, Managing Director of STI Engineering, said the contract award was important for the company to cement its place in the market as the world’s leading provider of high-powered, high reliability paging transmitters. The company has seen a resurgence in demand large-scale simulcast paging networks over the last couple of years, having delivered more than 500 transmitters for the Victorian Emergency Alerting System in 2014 and recently been awarded a supply contract for a nationwide network upgrade in Europe.
“Whilst the technology behind it may not be groundbreaking, it goes to show that paging is still the quickest and most efficient way to notify thousands of personnel in the event of an emergency. It seems private Government-operated paging networks will always have a place due to their unrivalled availability and reliability at peak times and in the event of disasters” Mr Svean said.
The RFI-148 250 paging transmitter offers the system class-leading usability and diagnostics with integrated isolator for VSWR measurements, SNMP diagnostics, remote firmware upgrade capability and an off air decoding port for message transmission confirmation by external receiver/decoders. The MTBF of the transmitter to industry leading standards will ensure high availability, reliability and longevity for the project
