AirBridge Networks, a pioneering force in remote communications and networking, has taken a significant step in revolutionising connectivity solutions, particularly in disaster-stricken areas. With the launch of ARNI Control, Australia’s premier all-in-one connectivity solution, AirBridge Networks is solidifying its reputation as a communications expert for Queensland and remote Australia.
Short for AirBridge Rapid Network Infrastructure, ARNI Control is a result of extensive community collaboration and decades of industry expertise in engineering and advanced communications, data, and IP technologies. Designed to provide fast and reliable connectivity precisely when and where it’s needed, ARNI Control is set to redefine the landscape of emergency communications.
At the core of ARNI Control’s capabilities lies a dual Vocus Starlink – Satellite service, delivering blistering download speeds of up to 500mbps, combined with low-latency bandwidth. Further bolstered by AirBridge’s proven success of being Australia’s Leading Vocus Starlink – Satellite partner. This robust connectivity solution is complemented by CB and UHF radios and a mobile booster, ensuring that communication is never compromised in critical situations.
To ensure uninterrupted operation of ARNI Control’s cutting-edge equipment, the system is equipped with a comprehensive power management solution. This includes an electric start inverter generator, solar panels, lithium-ion batteries, a DC to DC battery management system, and a 2000W Redarc inverter. Such power resilience is vital for ARNI Control’s effectiveness in remote and disaster-prone regions.
AirBridge Networks’ Founder and Managing Director, Doug Stephens, stated, “We are taking the absolute best of technology as it exists today and we are putting it into ARNI – in terms of communications, this is regional Australia’s best defence.” ARNI is testament to AirBridge’s commitment to serving the unique needs of remote Queensland and Australia.
“I’m thrilled to be leading the talented Team hear at AirBridge who are behind bring the ARNI solution to market.”It’s not every day you get to be a part of such a special product launch like ARNI, I’m very proud of the team at AirBridge behind this innovative solution. ARNI will be a game changer in the industry, especially for regional and remote communities.”
Doug Stephens, who calls the disaster-prone region, Far North Queensland home, knows first-hand the importance of connectivity. Multiple Far Northern councils and politicians have recognised the transformative potential of ARNI Control and have already expressed their support through drafted letters. Doug Stephens added, “Our partnership with Vocus has been very exciting because we were able to bring the Starlink service to communities almost a year ahead of any other provider.”
