Integrated fixed and mobile networks for safer, more efficient transport
Australia’s transport sectors play the key enabling role in our economic activity. Without the capacities and capabilities provided by their 820,000 strong workforce, no passengers or freight can move.
The adoption of new technology within the industry and changing patterns of world economic activity are revolutionising supply chains. Technology – automation, robotics and ‘Big Data’ – is improving the efficiency, speed and control of supply chains, supporting better forecasting, reducing risk, improving the customer experience and creating ways of meeting new customer demands.
Combined with the explosion in micro supply chains caused by the growth in online shopping, the Transport and Logistics Industry faces a future where it needs a better-skilled workforce, working smarter and more efficiently using nationwide infrastructure to be able to cope with a massive freight task.
ENHANCED DISPATCH AND PTT
There was a time when two-way radio was a transformative technology in the transport and logistics industry. While the technology has evolved to a digital standard and Push-to-Talk (PTT) over mobile networks, an integrated dispatch network with instant group communications is still a valuable business tool for fleet communications.
MOBILE DATA SERVICES
Taxis and couriers were among the first to benefit from the adoption of mobile data services. The wide scale deployment of affordable public mobile networks further drove the massive uptake of mobile data. Now it’s machine to machine (M2M), Internet of Things (IoT) and ‘big data’ that is taking mobile data to the next phase of utility.
TRACKING AND LOCATION SERVICES
Ability to track your vehicles and people will improve your operational efficiencies and enable you to meet health and safety considerations.
CARRIER GRADE WIRELESS LAN
The wireless LAN (WLAN, aka Wi-Fi) standard is being improved with a number of capacity, quality and interoperability enhancements to facilitate value added services such as VoWLAN, location services, analytics. It has the ability to provide seamless team communications across your logistics centres and warehousing by bridging communications over fixed and mobile networks.
INTEGRATED WAN CONNECTIVITY
You need a converged, assured and secured Wide Area Network (WAN) connectivity that can not only become a platform for high quality video, voice and data communications but also enables you to access cloud services with guaranteed performance.
ENHANCED IP TELEPHONY AND UNIFIED COMMUNICATIONS (UC)
