British telecom – Infostream delivered a complete wireless infrastructure monitoring system as part of the BT microwave wireless backbone for the NSW government. This project involved the design and manufacture of custom remote alarm and control monitor modules that were integrated with the microwave wireless systems. Using wireless and wired data connectivity, these modules communicated with an Infostream central control system to provide real-time monitoring and control from two Network Operations Centres (NOCs).
Infostream developed a custom ATEX rated pager and wireless protocol for use by harbour pilots to deliver real-time telemetry of environmental conditions and data collected from harbour-side mooring systems, which is displayed through a series of easy to navigate screens which provide reat-time data in a graphical form.
As part of the communications infrastructure at the Prospect water filtration plant, Infostream developed a wireless communication system to give plant technicians real-time telemetry gathered by the facilities sensors and alarms. Infostream developed not only the wireless devices but also the integration systems and infrastructure that interfaced to the plant’s PLCs and computer systems.
Complex stage productions involve many channels of sound being mixed from dozens of microphones worn by performers and located on-stage, all being mixed by a sound mixer located within the auditorium. Infostream’s challenge was to provide a system for the sound mixer to communicate silently and quickly with his back-stage helpers to bring this all together during a live performance. Our solution was to develop a custom front and back-stage communications panel that was integrated into the mixing desk to allow bi-directional communications between all parties. The solution combined custom control hardware, electronics, software and wireless devices.
Infostream created the Marketsource wireless financial data system – a complete wireless delivery system for real-time financial markets data. This system comprises the entire delivery chain from original data providers such as Reuters and the ASX, through to integration with the communications carriers to the end customer devices and the complete billing and exchange compliance reporting systems. Marketsource uses this system to provide thousands of financial market participants with real time data worth millions of dollars a day from dozens of data sources through dedicated pager devices, iPhones and GSM/GPRS devices. The infrastructure is controlled and operated though a sophisticated web-based application providing real-time control and monitoring of individual customer devices and datafeeds. The infrastructure is located across dozens of data centres and monitoring sites.
