MIMP connecting solutions www.mimp.com is an Australian-owned company that supplies, installs and supports high-capacity wide-band communications for the competitive business market. Established in 1985, MIMP has delivered digital transmission systems for customers nationally, in locations from metropolitan areas to the remote outback. MIMP clients include state and local governments, education, health and defence agencies and large corporations.
High-speed gigabit internet will be available in South Australia's two largest regional cities, Whyalla and Mount Gambier, by the end of the year. Eligible businesses in Whyalla and Mount Gambier will be connected to the GigCity network by Adelaide company MIMP Connecting Solutions, through a $1 million State Government-funded project.
“Building the GigCity network to additional precincts is a key action item within the state’s strategic action plan for future industries and entrepreneurship or the FIXE strategy,” South Australia’s Minister for Innovation and Skills David Pisoni said.
It is expected more than 220 businesses in Mount Gambier and around 70 in Whyalla will take up the service, at prices comparable to those available in metropolitan Adelaide GigCity precincts – ranging from $49.90 to $179.90 per month (ex GST), depending on the size of the business and the chosen plan.
“MIMP Connecting Solutions has begun preliminary works to build a new wireless broadband network and eligible businesses in both cities will be invited to register their interest to connect soon,” Minister Pisoni said.
A 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.
Adelaide-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.
