Mobile Data Communication

 

The Mobile Network is used more and more for internet access. Often simply because it's more conventient or maybe as backup for traditional broadband or simply because there are no other alternatives. Whatever reason the mobile network is an excellent way of sending data with an ever improving technology with an increasing coverage area.

Nettec has based all our mobile data solutions on routers from Digi International (www.digi.com). The reason being they are advanced enough to solve the tasks thrown at them and robust enough to handle the environment in which they operate. Even the most demaning customer can accept the solutions.

Quite often the installation is located at sites where humans have difficult access for any maitenance or support. Hence the products must be durable and self healing should any problems arise. Therefor it is critical that the equipment is of high quality as well as the configuration is done correctly. This way we get fewer “man in the wan” to keep a network going for years.

If you experience instability and downtime with your Digi Mobile Routers please let us know as something must we wrong and we should be able to fix it!

Our solutions is supported by any mobile operator including LTE450 (ICE in Norway, Net1 in Sweden). There are hardly any places we can’t connect!

Forgot to order fixed wired broadband …

A customer calls us on Thursday because they forgot to order a broadband line to a new store. The store will open this coming Monday, and they are without a solution for data communication. An express delivery from a line supplier is very expensive. How do we fix it?

How do we help the customer?

We configure a 4G router, set it up with VPN for necessary sites, send the router with overnight express to user site. When the router is connected we assists the customer by phone,  so  the shop is ready for operation the day after.

This solution can either be obtained by the customer on short-term rental or we provide the solution as a backup solution for both broadband and broadband routes. If the router is delivered as a backup, it will act as the main communication line until a fixed line is delivered, and then automatically lower its priority and act as a redundant solution.
Smooth and easy!

Gas station down and you’re out of fuel…..

An owner of an unattended gas station receives inquiries from his customers that it's not possible to refuel at the station. For the owner, this is difficult to troubleshoot. Technical assistance are two hours drive away. How do we help the owner? (illustration photo)

How do we troubleshoot?

Since we have many customers all over Norway, we also have other installations in the same area where the gas station owner is experiencing problems. We do an analyse and find that others also experiences instability. This may indicate that there is a common fault in the telecommunications network.

We report a error message to the ISP and inform our customer that it’s not necessary to take further action. The customer has saved time and the costs associated with an unnecessary emergency call.

When the  error is corrected, we contact the customer to confirm that the station is up and running again.
As easy as it can get!

You can, for example. detect common errors when multiple routers crash at the same time. It can be quickly discovered that communication is up, but connected devices are not working. We save our customers a lot of frustration and unnecessary troubleshooting costs. We have two powerful cloud monitoring solutions for network monitoring: Doppler Management and PRTG Network Monitor.

Doppler Management is a cloud service to monitor and control Digi TransPort routers (www.digi.com) . It is especially designed to monitor and report vital data for a Digi router in a mobile network. It will allow you see signal strength, network information, location, software and hardware versions, and much more.
It is an important tool to keep your fleet of Digi routers up and running.

To increase security we recommend our customers to use 2-factor authentication.

Nettec AS – fordi ” det er viktig at det fungerer”
Nettec har basert alle sine mobile datakom-løsninger på rutere fra Digi International. Det er fordi produktene er avanserte nok til å løse utfordringene som møter våre kunder, og robuste nok til at selv de mest krevende kunder kan akseptere produktene.

Ofte er mobile løsninger plassert på steder der det ikke er mennesker tilstede for å gjøre vedlikehold, som f.eks. en restart. Derfor er det ekstra viktig at utstyret og oppsettet tar hensyn til at feil kan oppstå, men at installasjonen selv evner å komme tilbake på nett når feilen er utbedret.

Produkter som passer er Digi WR11XT og WR31. Les mer her.

Vi tilbyr pålitelige, integrerte og kosteffektive løsninger levert på dagen. Vi hjelper gjerne montører som skal sette opp skjermer ved å teste at alt fungerer, samt gi råd om plassering av antenner og hvilken operatør som passer på stedet. Dette gjør at montøren kan bli ferdig med jobben første gang, og slipper kostnadsdrivende ekstrabesøk for å ferdigstille installasjonen.

God dekning med 4G i “alle kanaler”

Digi-rutere kan leveres med støtte for 4G (LTE) både i Telia, Telenor, COM4  og ICE sine nettverk. Det betyr at man har uovertruffen dekning i hele Norden. Vi kan levere 2 SIM og aktivere det som passer på stedet når du trenger det.

Digital Signage / Info sreens

Connect with confidence … without a network cable. Many customers are very restrictive when it comes to who they allow to get access to their network. With our solution we set up communication for info screens / digital signage, without involving us in the customer’s network. Two major advantages of this solution are that you do not depend on the customer’s network (when changes are made), and that this solution becomes considerably easier to set up, and relocate if necessary.

Gas stations and fueling systems

Here we deliver solutions either on broadband or via a 4G solution. Both solutions are delivered in a private network. For those who depend on operation 24/7/365 we set up a redundant with automatic failover if the broadband or broadband router are down. We also have many sites where we have two 4G routers, with two different operators. This works the same as broadband / 4G router. In addition, we provide home office solutions for access to cameras and remote control.

Transportation

For this industry, it is important to be able to handle WiFi for customers, the ticketing system and GPS positioning. To have a well-functioning WiFi, it is important to use a router that can hold on to two base stations at the same time. We also supply SIM card in a private APN for secure communication between driver’s Pads / hand terminals towards central resources.

Retail

Here we provide communication between stores and head office, payment services, coordination with POS vendors, backup for broadband and broadband routers, VPN routers for use on 3rd party broadband lines, monitoring tool that gives status of all stores, also possible to monitor units in customers LAN.

These industries use our products for a variety of applications. For example, communication for security systems for performing tasks such as access control change, retrieval of surveillance videos, alarm transmission, etc. Within automation, we provide communication for managing PLCs. Sensors and alarm readings are also retriveable.  For critical installations and SD systems, we also supply redundant lines.

Fish farm

Fish farming facilities are often located in places where mobile network is the only communication carrier. For such systems we provide high speed broadband over 4G. The solution provides stable and fast internet for all components of the system that need access to the network, such as surveillance cameras and monitoring of feeding machines and aggregates.

Restaurants

Here we provide communication between the restaurant and head office, payment processing, coordination with POS vendors, backup for broadband and broadband routers,monitoring tool that gives status of all stores, also possible to monitor units in customers LAN.  Some want extra security and for these we supply duplicate lines, either as broadband + mobile or mobile + mobile.
