MIMP CEO Allan AitchisonA National Science Week event in the remote SA community of Arkaroola today will use a MIMP microwave wireless network to showcase the value of telehealth for regional Australia.

Run by Dr Paul Gardner-Stephen of Flinders University, the interactive event has invited locals to have their blood pressure taken in Arkaroola and reviewed by a health professional 700km away in Adelaide, demonstrating the ease and convenience of telehealth.

Connecting the patient and doctor will be a microwave wireless network deployed by Adelaide-based wireless specialist MIMP Connecting Solutions to serve a mine in the Northern Flinders Ranges in 2012. At its own expense, MIMP extended that network to reach Arkaroola in 2013, with plans to expand it to Nepabunna and other local communities. The telehealth event will be held at the Arkaroola Visitor Centre from 11am to 12.45pm on Wednesday, August 19, 2015.

Kangaroo Island Council CEO Andrew BoardmanAdelaide-based wireless specialist MIMP Connecting Solutions has beaten the NBN to the punch by delivering high-speed broadband services for SA’s Kangaroo Island.

Supported by the Kangaroo Island Council, MIMP has established a 100 megabit-per-second (Mb/s) microwave wireless connection from Adelaide to Kingscote. The new NEC Microwave radio network can carry 300 megabits per second (Mb/s) of data to meet expected demand and can be upgraded to 850 Mb/s in future.

As well as providing the Kangaroo Island Council with a full-duplex 20 Mb/s link to its data centre in Kingscote, MIMP’s link has enough extra capacity to offer broadband to other residents and businesses on the island, which has limited ADSL and 3G mobile broadband.

About 100 students from Flinders’ network systems, computer science, software engineering and information technology streams will have access to the new equipment as well as to senior MIMP engineering staff who design innovative wireless networks.
