AltaiCare – Access and Service Control, Content Management, Big Data Analytics

AltaiCare was newly introduced in 2015 and will be on the training agenda. It is a cloud-based network management and service control software system. It is designed for WiFi service providers with integrated network management and service control functionalities for fast and cost saving service provisioning, as well as location-aware content management and big data analytics to help defining sales and marketing strategies based on customer behavior.

As an integral part of our Super WiFi network, key benefits of using AltaiCare include:

  • Cost saving – no AP controller, access controller or service controller is required
  • Ease of deployment – cloud-based and zero configuration supports fast provisioning at ease
  • Powerful multiple-site remote management
  • Powerful controller functions – including local breakout and captive portal
  • High security, scalability and reliability
  • Flexible 3-tier user and security login
  • Green-friendly – the radio can be automatically turned down during non-service hours
  • Advertising content management supporting AP location-aware or Altai beacon content feeding
  • User behavior and web-surfing history big data analytics

We very much look forward to meeting our WA Partners during March.  For more information on the event details please go to our booking engine HERE.

Wi-Fi Gold Coast Beaches?

Share this PostShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on Google+Email this to someone

Four words for what we want – Wi-Fi Gold Coast Beaches

With our headquarters based on the Gold Coast, Powertec staff are quite passionate about putting Wi-Fi on the iconic beaches of the City of Gold Coast (if not everywhere on the Coast) in order to move forward as a Smart City. We see the benefits as far reaching; those of health and safety by telling our visitors about surf conditions; to benefits for business’ by offering two for one icecream vouchers; and for those who log in to a city-wide system to share their happy snaps; and there are many other potential uses.

We’re a city that’s all about tourism and attracting foreign visitors to holiday and study. The one thing they will all have in common is that they want to be connected to their families back home. They want to share their iconic Gold Coast centric experiences with their families…..and showcase our city to the rest of the world.

And we are not the only ones who want the same thing apparently. Gold Coast Bulletin journalist Alice Gorman recently ‘wrote out’ about wi-fi after being slugged $70 for wi-fi access at her hotel accommodation by a legacy system (old and out of date extortionate wi-fi charging system) being run by her holiday apartment on the Coast.   We spoke to Alice after her initial article appeared and she wrote a follow-up article below:

Gold Coast Bulletin Wi-Fi gold coast article

 

So we are ready and willing to speak to anyone who can make this happen – Wi-Fi Gold Coast Beaches.

The Texas – Marine Wifi Solution

Share this PostShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on Google+Email this to someone

Texas is a Superyacht measuring 44.6 metres and custom built in 1984 by Turkish company Turquoise Yachts. This beautiful vessel is capable of a maximum speed of 12 knots and can accommodate up to 12 guests. It runs a full complement of staff to ensure the journey ran smoothly for our cruisers.

Texas was once owned by Solomon Lew, an Australian businessman and one of Australia’s richest men who made his billions primarily from importing goods from China into Australia.  Lew owned not just the Texas but also kept in his garage a spare superyacht the 54-metre Maridome.

Business Needs

Every 5 years most yachts are required to schedule an overhaul to undergo servicing and redo all the certifications – which generally coincides with a refit. The Australian owner recently docked her into a Brisbane ship yard in Hemmant to receive her makeover.

At the same time as her bottom was being cleaned, the captain contacted a local Dealer who worked with Powertec to upgrade all the communications equipment. The focus was on ensuring full data, marine Wi-Fi and mobile coverage was able to be accessed on board, for future journeys.

Product/s Used

  • 1 x Marine Antenna & Base
  • 1 x NTC-140W-02 Netcomm 3G/4G Wifi M2M Router
  • 4 x Altai SuperWifi C1n 2.4GHz CPE/AP

The Solution

The Netcomm Wireless 4G Wi-Fi M2M router utilises the speed and performance of the 4G network to deliver seamless M2M connectivity and supply the data. A complete range of networking and connectivity options are available with this industrial router allowing Altai Super Wi-Fi components to be utilised alongside. Four of the Altai C1n Super WiFi CPE/AP’s were used to extend the Wi-Fi coverage throughout all the cabins and decks with the Marine Antenna capturing the mobile signal to ensure signal was received at all times.

All marine wifi parts supplied were weatherproof so perfect for this type of highly destructive environment.

Commentary

The Captain of the Texas commented that the set-up simplicity, the ease of use and lack of ongoing maintenance were the main reasons they purchased these marine wifi brands.
