Now is the time to review your communications requirements - replace, upgrade or expand your system or book in for a service to ensure your system is running optimally.

National Wireless are pleased to announce that at the 2010 Motorola Channel Partners’ Conference held at the Crown Promenade in Melbourne, we were named 2009 Zeon Digital Partner of the Year.

Prevention is ALWAYS better than the cure Can your company afford production down time due to an entirely preventable communications failure? If you answered NO . . . then you need to consider preventative maintenance on your two way radios and wireless IP networks immediately! Regardless of your industry, down time due to communication failure is NOT an option. You probably have regular maintenance programs for mechanical equipment and are not aware this approach should also be adopted for two way radios and repeaters and Wireless IP infrastructure. There are many components in radio systems which have to be tuned to work together. Over time subtle variances can occur which may result in reduced performance. Performing regular preventative maintenance at least annually can ensure equipment is working to it’s optimum, and reduce the probability of a complete communications failure. Companies make significant investments in communications infrastructure and all too often we are called in to fix equipment that has failed due to lack of maintenance. It can cost you in lost productivity, frustrated staff and the cost of call outs. It is also a potentially dangerous situation if your system fails in an emergency scenario. By far our most common fault is simply battery backup failure. National Wireless have invested in the latest high tech service equipment for our workshops nationally and are proud to offer the highest levels of expertise to our customers.

• Expert Service • Custom Installations • Engineered Solutions

Disclaimer: Preventative maintenance includes tuning RF equipment to manufacturer’s specification, cleaning and testing of batteries/power connection and testing of antenna. A maintenance report is provided for each radio/repeater.

Wireless Network for Flight Training Adelaide (FTA) is a residential College located at Parafield Airport, South Australia. FTA provides professional airline pilot training for many of the world’s leading airlines. Present and past customers include Qantas, Cathay Pacific Airways, China Airlines, Emirates, Dragonair, JAL Express, Air China, Vietnam Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, South African Airways, British Airways and many more. Flight Training Adelaide’s campus is designed to accommodate up to 200 students in residence at any given time. The design was based on a master plan to build a world class, fully integrated flying training facility. The spacious grounds incorporate purpose built training and operations areas, a learning resource centre, offices, aircraft maintenance, hard-stand aircraft parking areas, residential accommodation, prayer room, dining and recreational facilities. In 2009 FTA decided to upgrade and expand its wireless networking capabilities from the existing single, entry level access point; to a professionally designed and installed mesh network which would allow access to FTA’s internal networks and the internet from all training and accommodation locations on their campus at Parafield Airport. FTA approached National Wireless to survey their site and review their network requirements. Subsequently we designed and installed a professional network, suitable for business critical functions, utilising Tropos 5210 nodes positioned strategically across the site. The new network now provides enhanced coverage, capacity and reliability.

On completion of this project, Pine Pienaar FTA’s CEO said: “I am delighted that this project is now completed. We have made a very large investment to ensure our customers have got access to Internet whenever they are on campus. With over 95% of FTA students being from overseas, Internet is key for them to be able to communicate with family and friends.” This also allows FTA to convey Standard Operating Procedures and Daily Flight Programs directly onto student laptops. This is the first step for FTA towards the ultimate goal of providing a full Computer Based Training solution to all its customers. As we have done for Flight Training Adelaide, National Wireless can engineer an indoor or outdoor wireless broadband solution for every business no matter how large or small. Utilising the latest equipment from Tropos and Motorola we can provide: • Point-to-Point solutions

• Network Design & Management System

• Wireless LAN Network Management

• Point-to-Multipoint solutions

• Wireless Switches

• Wireless LAN Security

• Mesh Wide Area Network solutions

• Wireless Access Points
