The Remote High Speed Wireless Technology Pilot is a pioneering project. This initiative of the Northern RDA Alliance represents a partnership with RDA NT, RDA Kimberley, Central Desert Regional Council, and Distant Curve.
The project involved connection of two remote Indigenous communities (Engawala and Atitjere) to Nextgen fibre via long-distance point-to-point microwave technology. It demonstrates the potential of low-cost, small-scale telecommunication solutions for remote regions in some of the NT’s smallest communities.
The infrastructure phase is complete and leanings are currently being disseminated. In the longer term more competitive telecommunications will drive regional development outcomes.
Early prototype designs. Lightweight, low impact and easily relocatable to respond to local priorities, including the close proximity of Aboriginal sacred sites.
