Hutchinson Builders were contracted by Origin Energy to construct the Talinga FIFO camp, support buildings and 60 person administration office.
March IT was engaged to design, supply and install a Wi-Fi solution to the village after the village was commissioned. March IT connected the site via a new high speed fixed wireless link to deliver 40Mbps/40Mbps of bandwidth. The village had an existing fibre optic network throughout, providing the ideal platform for in-room Wi-Fi coverage.
The solution provided a secure 5Mbps/5Mbps to each and every room in the camp. March IT’s high speed, reliable internet services and village Wi-Fi has reduced the impact of isolation at Talinga Village, providing camp residents the ability to contact family and friends without interruption. Through the use of firewalling and content filtering, all residents are able to use the service simultaneously, without the strain on bandwidth caused by peer-to-peer downloading.With the delivery of telecommunications completed within two weeks of being award the contract, March IT was able to:
- Connect people working in remote places to their families and friends
- Improve productivity by providing reliable telecommunications in remote places
- Reduce the impact of isolation for those working in remote places
- Deliver reliable communications to a site where limited/no 3G service was available
