The customer's long-term objective was to create a city-wide smart network, incorporating embedded sensors to monitor, measure, transmit, and receive data, improving network reliability and service quality through predictive modeling. As part of this initiative, the goal was to implement seismic monitoring systems at critical infrastructure sites, addressing several key challenges:
- Detecting seismic activity in real-time at critical sites, including dams, water supply, and wastewater networks.
- Establishing a reliable communication system capable of seamless data transmission through secondary methods in case of primary communication failures.
- Deploying weatherproof, lightning-proof, rugged, and tamper-proof equipment to operate in remote sites with limited or no standard network connectivity.
- Integrating IoT data with cloud-based platforms while minimising cabling requirements.
