Will Icelandic volcanoes erupt in the future?
The answer to this question is extremely important for many people, governments and businesses, not only in Iceland. Remember the sky-closing, no fly situation in 2010 due to Icelandic volcanic ash in the atmosphere, thousands of people waiting in vain for their scheduled flights, and horrible cargo delays across Europe? The remote monitoring of volcanoes is clearly extremely important for all of us. Advatech B+B SmartWorx devices – in this case 3G/4G routers – help to transfer data from seismological stations using the latest in wireless mobile network technology. Data is transferred to a monitoring center, where it is processed and analyzed.
“Wireless data transfer from geo-measuring devices is one of the large varieties of applications where communication through GSM mobile operator networks is really efficient. The reliability and security of such solutions is high. Another huge advantage of such technology is it’s relatively low entry and operating cost compared to the other technologies available on the market,” says Pavel Pospisil, Director of the Router Product Division.
His opinion is proven by the operation of hundreds other applications, not only in Iceland. It is clear that SmartFlex 3G/4G routers are not only beneficial for industrial use, data transfer from ATMs, ticketing terminals or kiosks as we thought before, but can deliver huge potential benefits across the globe.
