Rugged gateway is able to withstand harsh environments, meaning fewer “touches” in the field
Danish Defence sends military forces through intensive training programs, typically in locations where the climate is similar to the deployment region. This training ground is located far from populated areas and, as is typical in remote areas, the coverage of mobile broadband is scarce, making it a challenge to keep a stable line of communication.
We need reliable communications to be able to coordinate our activities, and we depend on high quality products and knowledge. With DeltaM2M and Sierra Wireless, we found both.
Danish Defence tested several solutions that didn’t satisfy their needs and subsequently contacted their Danish IoT specialist – DeltaM2M – to learn about possible communications solutions which would operate in these harsh conditions. The equipment would need to maintain constant communications and would also have to support a wide range of temperatures, moisture levels and power sources.
DeltaM2M recommended the Sierra Wireless AirLink® MP70 to Danish Defence. The MP70 is a rugged mobile router that complies with MILSPEC standards and supports temperatures from -30°C up to +70°C. DeltaM2M is among Sierra Wireless’s most experienced partners. Over the years, DeltaM2M has been involved in a large number of deployments for mission critical communications within both military, public safety and industrial use.
A key requirement for Danish Defence was having valid and relevant references for the product, and Sierra Wireless and DeltaM2M could point to several customers using the product for similar applications in similar conditions.
Once installed, the results were immediate and remarkable. “We have 100% reliable communications,” says Ulrik Jørgensen from the Danish Military. “We need reliable communications to be able to coordinate our activities, and we depend on high quality products and knowledge,” he continues. “With DeltaM2M and Sierra Wireless, we found both”.
