Mission Critical Wide Area Wireless Networks

A Mission Critical Wide Area Wireless Network by ANLX Providing a Mission Critical wireless network for the Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) over a 1,200 acre site is not an easy task. Year round internet connectivity is provided by twin, 100Mb diversely routed Fibre cables, but during the Air Tattoo, the core network expands to provide connectivity for an additional 100 fixed computers and up to 10,000 WiFi users.  However, the real challenge is to extend the core network using wireless links, to enable mission critical coverage to key remote offices, including the Control Tower, Flight Centre, Security, emergency response units and a field hospital as well as the entrance ticket scanners, all of which are located around the 1,200 acre site. The ANLX Solution – Wired & Wireless Networking ANLX provide external connectivity to the RIAT network via twin, 100Mb diversely routed Fibre links to create a secure, resilient Local Area Network (LAN).   The LAN is then extended during the Air Tattoo to include a Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) using an encrypted 300Mb wireless ring around the Air Base with nodes at key points to enable access to the Ring from WiFi hot spots or core network extensions. The wireless ring uses Point to Point (P2P) infrastructure by Sub10 and Cambium  and operates in the 5.8 GHz unlicensed spectrum, to deliver a self-healing 300Mb network, with 25 dBm of transmit power with up to 168 dB system gain using 22 dBi antennas. WiFi access was enabled for Staff, exhibitors & visitors through the system that is capable of handling 2,500 concurrent sessions. Read more on the Case...

Platform as a service (PaaS)

Platform as a service (PaaS) is a category of cloud computing services that provides a computing platform and a solution stack as a service. Along with software as a service (SaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS), it is a service model of cloud computing. In this model, the consumer creates an application or service using tools and/or libraries from the provider. The consumer also controls software deployment and configuration settings. The provider provides the networks, servers, storage, and other services that are required to host the consumer’s application. PaaS offerings facilitate the deployment of applications or services without the cost and complexity of buying and managing the underlying hardware and software and provisioning hosting capabilities.  All “as-a-service” offerings are characterized as providing low initial cost, incremental cost as your service usage grows, self-service, best practices built-in, resource sharing, automated deployment, management services, lifecycle management, reuse. PaaS provides these capabilities for application and service development. There are various types of PaaS vendors; however, all offer application hosting and a deployment environment, along with various integrated services. Services offer varying levels of scalability and maintenance. PaaS offerings may also include facilities for application design, application development, testing, and deployment as well as services such as team collaboration, web service integration, and marshalling, database integration, security, scalability, storage, persistence, state management, application versioning, application instrumentation, and developer community facilitation. Besides the service engineering aspects, PaaS offerings include mechanisms for service management, such as monitoring, workflow management, discovery, reservation, etc. There are a number of reasons why PaaS is experiencing fast market adoption. Today, there are compelling economics around these offerings. Not...
