Wild connectivity on safari

May 2016 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Radwin’s mobility solutions have been selected by The Wilds Safari Park & Conservation Centre in Cumberland, Ohio, USA, home to rare and endangered species from around the globe. The Wilds required a mobility solution to be deployed across the 9000-acre safari park to provide wireless connectivity to its operational vehicles and tour buses.

The Wilds selected Radwin Point-to-Point D+ radios and Radwin FiberinMotion as best meeting their specific requirements for broadband connectivity within the game park, which was integrated by Radwin partner, Agile Networks.

Dr Jan Ramer, director of Conservation Medicine, The Wilds said, “There was almost non-existent coverage in the park before we deployed Radwin, so we had to rely on two-way radios and a plodding Internet connection in the offices. If staff treating animals in the field wanted to consult with offsite experts, they would have to take a picture, download the picture, make it smaller, email it and then wait for something to come back. An ineffective, time-consuming process.

Following the launch of the Radwin-based wireless mobility network we can send real-time video of the animals in the field to off-site consultants who can give us their expert advice. We’ve also managed to enhance the visitors’ experience; now that there’s high-speed connectivity on the open tour buses, visitors can share their experiences in real-time and post updates on their social media accounts.”

Kyle Quillen, CTO, Agile Networks said, “With Radwin we were able to establish a robust wireless network providing 150 Mbps capacity to cover such a wide area. Radwin’s FiberinMotion mobility solution essentially light-ups an entire area with connectivity for mobile and Wi-Fi devices as well as mobile payment systems – and really enhances a lot of the different operations at The Wilds.”
