Maritime Safety Communication Systems in Taiwan
Major first responder organisations in Taiwan have implemented a nationwide maritime safety communications network across 3 stages providing coverage of the complete region. RFI worked with one of the countries major systems integrators whose priority was for minimizing potential interference and maximising performance of this critical communications network was the highest priority. RFI’s low PIM Meander series antennas and PIM hardened Multicoupling Solutions were selected for the project and have provided exceptional performance outcomes.
Public Safety Radio Upgrade
RFI provided equipment and design services for the digital upgrade & whole of country geographic expansion of the 180 + site RMP Public Safety Radio Network. The network utilised RFI’s industry leading PIM rated base station antennas, a combination of standard and custom engineered multicoupling and combining systems and DSP based Rebroadcast Equipment.
Mobile Security Camera Solution
A major hurdle for a Mobile Security Cameras client was a limitation of knowledge and understanding about networks, IP and 3G and 4G. Apart from speed, critical attributes they required for their applications were reliability and durability.
Sydney Opera House
Working with Downer group, RFI’s dedicated radio rebroadcast solutions team was tasked to replace an ageing system with one that would be compatible with the UHF Government radio network (GRN). Our team had to respond to some tight parameters – due to the unique architectural design of the Opera House, a discrete solution was also required to maintain building aesthetics and team had a tight deadline due to New Year’s Eve celebrations.
USA Midwest Public Safety Network
A USA Midwest public safety agency was upgrading their state-wide P25 system. The agency searched extensively for a high performance, PIM rated base station antenna solution that would enable them to operate both 700 MHz and 800 MHz services into the one antenna. The engineering team chose the RFI Corporate Collinear antennas and to date have installed over 200 CC807 series antennas.
Staging for Various Government Radio Networks
RFI has worked with a number of GRN radio networks and have supplied more than 550 racks, often with an aggressive schedule. RFI was chosen because we could stage large quantities of product in a short time frame while also providing RF equipment integration into the rack. RFI was able to supply the RF gear, as well as provide RF expertise for full equipment rack build, integration and testing. These racks were then integrated with RFI multicoupling equipment. RFI undertook the staging in our Melbourne manufacturing facility. The completed systems were delivered direct to sites all over Australia. To date we have supplied 550 Racks which includes 175 RFI built Peg Racks, over 2500 channels of multicoupling, over 350 RFI Rx/Tx Monitoring Equipment ASMs, 350 RX MUXx with custom Preselector Filters.
