When leading South Australian aged care provider Life Care recognised its Wide Area Network design was holding back progress, preventing deployment of its new care planning software system, it turned to MIMP connecting solutions for an answer.
During 2012, MIMP connecting solutions deployed a full-duplex licensed wireless network, running as fast as 100 megabits per second, to connect Life Care’s corporate head office in North Adelaide with its five aged care facilities in the eastern and southern suburbs of Adelaide, one as far as 50km away.
A 480km wireless networking project in Queensland has earned two major communication industry awards for wireless specialist MIMP Connecting Solutions - because it wasn’t ground-breaking!
MIMP collected three NECA (National Electrical and Communications Association) awards at the SA finals, two for the APLNG pipe microwave network in Queensland and one for MIMP’s Life Care network.
Adelaide-based wireless communications company MIMP is battling the South Australian Government to overturn a $4500 licence levy on microwave dishes mounted on towers installed on Crown land.
The SA Department of Environment Water and Natural Resources (DEWNR) wants to levy companies such as MIMP as much as $4500 for each microwave dish it installs on a tower, in addition to the rent it pays to tower operators. Tower operators already pay the government for a tower located on public land.
