Remote Communication

GPRS and NextG communication provide for wireless internet communication which is utilied by Ecotech’s blast monitoring system.

Devices using GPRS and NextG are ‘internet aware’, meaning that they connect, via a carrier, to the Internet. For all practical purposes, they can be considered to be ‘always connected’. Most monitoring sites will have access to at least one network. Other communication methods such as satellite can also be employed.

GPRS, 3G and NextG enabled mobile phones, handheld PCs’ and personal digital assistants (PDAs’) which can connect to the internet can  interact with the Dynamaster® web server. This allows the users of these types of devices to retrieve blast results and control the blast monitoring system from virtually anywhere.

Access to the blast monitoring system does not require a PC running a special application back at the office.

GPRS and NextG puts Dynamate stations on the internet

Using any of these networks the Dynamate® monitoring stations are on the Internet and can be accessed (by authorized personnel via the ECOTECH Dynamaster® web server) by any device with a web browser and Internet connection (GPRS, 3G, Broadband or Landline).

Australian users also have the benefit of being able to connect using ECOTECH’s private Telstra network.

'Line of Sight’ considerations are no longer relevant

Dynamate® scan be located anywhere that have communication networks available. The distance from the ECOTECH Server or other Dynamates® need not be considered.

Reliability

These communication networks are regulated and maintained by the major carriers and in 99% of locations at least one will provide a sufficiently high speed with reliable data transfer.
