Flight Training Adeliade Campus Stays Connected with Tropos

Flight Training Adelaide (FTA) is a residential training facility in Australia that provides professional airline pilot training for many of the world’s leading airlines including Qantas, Cathay Pacific Airways, China Airlines, Emirates, and British Airways.

FTA wanted a wireless network accessible across their campus at Parafield Airport allowing teachers to send Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and daily flight programs to students’ laptops anywhere on campus. In addition, they wanted to provide students with Internet access so they could stay connected with family and friends during their training.

FTA selected National Wireless to help them develop them in selecting and installing a wireless network. National Wireless recommended Tropos’ IP mesh based upon its high reliability, scalability, and high capacity.

Check out the FTA case study on National Wireless’ website. This is a great example of a multi-use Tropos network -- improving education with efficient communications while providing Internet access to keep students and teachers connected with the outside world.
