Tony Smith


Talk: Challenges of Deploying a System 4 hours from Home - (it's like its in another country)

Tony will discuss the challenges of installing a complete network consisting of Gateway and nodes more than 4 hours drive from home.

He will review the real life experience of installing 12 nodes and several gateways, and consider the future developments required before this can be accomplished by a non-technical customer with a site visit.

He will also discuss the concept of an automated test set which can provide site evaluation of the backhaul system.
