High Capacity Network for Salt Mining Operation in the Dead Sea
A large salt mining company operating out of the Dead Sea approached Taldor, a leading Israeli IT & network solutions company, to assist them in finding a cost effective solution that could both provide the high-speed data capacity they now needed, as well as significant flexibility in mobility and distance that would prove critical to further production development.
After an extended research and qualification period, Taldor identified and recommended the BATS, for its BTS-5000 system, integrated with DragonWave’s Horizon Compact radio, utilizing an 8Ghz, 2 ft. parabolic antenna. Initial on-field calibration and testing began on October 19, 2012, at the clients Dead Sea production site. Learn More →
In one of the most inhospitable regions of the world, a defense technologies company needed to establish communication links with gigabit speeds between locations that were 3 to 11 miles apart. Over harsh and hostile mountain terrain, establishing a link between these end points continually proved to be more than challenging. The customer sought to establish a communication link of gigabit speeds utilizing antennas under one degree in beamwidth. From drop-off to finish, the link would need to be established between two remote locations in less than three hours. Learn More →
In late June 2010, world leaders gathered for the G-20 Toronto Summit to discuss the global financial system and the world economy. The Toronto G-20 Summit was the most expensive ever with security alone costing an estimated $1 billion. The Toronto police department retained Motorola for its critical communications and Motorola called on BATS for their innovative broadband solutions expertise. Learn More →
An oil and gas company sought an alternative to costly and disruptive landlines during a shutdown / “turnaround” of it refinery operations. Establishing a short-term wireless platform at the petrochemical complex presents unique challenges including conflicting RF applications and the presence of dense steel structures and storage tanks. Traditionally, engineers and computer support were necessary to maintain a microwave link for network access. Learn More →
A sports marketing agency recently challenged BATS to create an affordable solution for blimp-to-ground transfer of HD content, including live video and high-definition photographs. During the trials, in Bridgeport, Connecticut, the BATS Service and Support team integrated two BTS-2500 systems with Cambium PTP 600 series radios. One BTS system was located in the cockpit of the blimp, while the second was located at the ground station. The BTS-2500 system used in the test was selected for its rapidly deployable, highly mobile capabilities, featuring an automated Positioning Unit (PU) and a BATS Rack Mount Control Unit (RMCU).
