Stephen Hawking once said, “We are all connected, like neurons in the giant brain.”
The significance of connectivity has only proliferated in today’s world. From its reliance on less efficient technologies, humankind has made substantial progress into new-age communication systems. “Notably, satellite communication, which was usually considered as the last resort by implementers, is once again coming to the forefront as a go-to option,” remarks Matthew Ellison, Business Development Manager at Wireless Innovation.
In the face of this technological evolution, Wireless Innovation is all set to meet the requirements of its clients through state-of-the-art satellite connectivity solutions. The company paves the way for a secure and reliable communication link–from the remote site back to the central control room. Ellison points out that the technology is shifting towards IP connectivity where data is flowing in multi-directions. This requires remote sites to automate processes and make giant strides to meet the customer demands for “better service in an affordable range.”
This is precisely where Wireless Innovation moves the needle. It eradicates the need for third-party services and makes remote sites more resilient to risk. “Being able to interface secure connections with a wide variety of data loggers and PLCs, we make data collection efficient and subsequently reduce the cost,” informs Ellison. Wireless Innovation banks on its extensive experience in the utilities market and provides end-to-end solutions unique to the clients’ needs. Be it a wireless network for CCTV backhaul or a satellite communications system for retrieving critical M2M data from a mountain top, the company addresses the diverse needs of its clients.
The looming question is: how?
The uniqueness of Wireless Innovation stems from the extensive knowledge of its team that brings in over 200 years of combined experience in wireless telemetry, wireless SCADA, radio and cellular communications, and all forms of wireless data communications. The interesting mix of ingrained knowledge allows Wireless Innovation to impart flexibility in clients’ business propositions. Infusing their know-how while dealing with clients’ challenges, the proficient team focuses on two prime aspects–volumes of data and frequency of transmission. Energy power requirement is another key component. It is the balance between these three factors that enable the company to curate solutions that are not only efficient but also cost-effective. “We take special care of our customer needs throughout their wireless journey,” continues Ellison. “We collaborate with clients to find a common ground where both our purposes are met.”
Since its humble beginnings in 2004, Wireless Innovation has proved its mettle in the M2M, SCADA, and telemetry realm through its satellite and cellular connectivity providers across the globe. The firm provides connectivity as a managed service via its own platform to a wide-spread range of end-user clients worldwide. To understand the efficacy of its solutions better, Ellison walks us through a client success story wherein the company partnered with UK-based water utility company Scottish Water and helped them digitise their communication networks. Scottish Water was challenged by the need to change their legacy analog frameworks that involved “sweating of pipelines” into futuristic digital models. In addition, Wireless Innovation also replaced their traditional PSTN and enabled Scottish Water to ‘plug-and-play’ without having to invest in new RTUs, PLCs, and HMI the number of increased deployment sites to collect remote data efficiently.
With innovation at its core, Wireless Innovation is expanding its market share and is promoting satellites as the viable communication solution for reliance and cybersecurity. Moving forward, Wireless Innovation is incorporating the benefits of IoT in safeguarding data and bringing in catchment monitoring to protect information outside the fence to help water companies manage their operations. “We look forward to facing new challenges, learning new concepts and developing new capabilities in the process,” concludes Ellison.
