Melbourne-based NPS (Network Professional Services) has discovered an upside to NBN rollout delays by using the Aussie-designed failover routers to solve the problem of delayed connections.
NPS has this month received the Accelerated Concepts Australian Partner of the Year Award 2017 for exemplary growth and market penetration of the Australian market.
Accelerated routers, which provide Internet access via 4G cellular data networks when primary broadband links fail, are designed by Brisbane-based Accelerated Concepts Ltd, but until the past year, were available only internationally through US-based Accelerated Concepts Inc.
Since 2016, NPS, as Accelerated’s Master Reseller in Australia, has both sold and supported the range of routers and built a national retail distribution network for the devices. Accelerated has a broad range of industrial-strength 4G-capable routers from $499 at https://www.acau.com.au/.
Accelerated Concepts Pty Ltd managing director Matt Ramsay said NPS had proved itself an exemplary partner in raising the brand’s national profile. “NPS founder David Malcolm is a passionate advocate for our products who has established Accelerated as a credible local brand,” he said.
Australian battery company Redflow Limited has successfully started manufacturing core components for its zinc-bromine flow batteries at its new production facility in Thailand.
During the past week, Redflow began producing electrode inserts made of HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene) plastic on the production line at the factory in the Hemaraj industrial estate, south-east of Bangkok. The electrode inserts - produced from custom-made highly conductive plastic- use a bipolar design to enable a zinc-plating reaction on one side and a bromine reaction on the other.
Redflow CEO Richard Aird said production of the first components was going according to plan, as outlined last month at the company’s Annual General Meeting in Brisbane. “We remain on track to produce full battery stacks from our Thai factory next month,” he said.
