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.
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.
SA-based communications trailblazer MIMP Connecting Solutions is teaming up with Flinders University to provide students with access to cutting edge telecommunications equipment.
The quarter-million-dollar MIMP Edge Lab, located at the Flinders University precinct at Adelaide’s Tonsley Park, will provide an interactive showcase of the latest technology from MIMP and its partners including NEC, Aviat and CommScope.
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.
Adelaide-based communications specialist MIMP connecting solutions has started its 30th year in business on a roll, after doubling in size during the past two years.
Established in 1985, the privately owned company has doubled its headcount to nearly 30 employees since 2013, driven by strong demand for its expertise in installing and maintaining wireless networks.
With its head office in Richmond, MIMP has undertaken ground-breaking projects throughout Australia including Adelaide’s first Internet-enabled buses; building a multicast mesh wireless network to make Darwin’s streets safer; and deploying a 480km wireless network in regional Queensland. MIMP has also actively worked to link up remote SA communities such as Arkaroola.
