Wavenet given global check

MORE than twenty telecommunication and engineering companies around the world are evaluating Wavenet’s wireless communication technology.

The Perth-based company invested more than $5 million in developing the Tsunami modem over four years and began sales last year.

The modem hooks into Telstra’s MobileData radio network, allowing users to log on to the Internet and check emails while out on the road.

This makes it useful for workers in a mobile environment such as sales and service fleets who typically send a large number of short messages across the Internet such as emails, stock enquiries and sales orders.

A Wavenet spokesman said, with wireless technology, the user was always online, there was no dial-in delay and charges were based on data volume transmitted rather than time connected.

Fuji Xerox was one of the first major buyers of the product. It bought the Tsunami modem for its service fleet.

Wavenet has also developed wireless base stations that can be deployed to establish a network.

“The greatest potential for this product lies in developing countries that do not have established telecommunications infrastructure,” the spokesman said.

Wavenet is currently developing a number of products with in-built wireless modems such as security systems, vehicle tracking with global positioning systems and personal alarms.
