RDA NT’s Wireless Pilot is a pioneering project. This initiative of the Northern RDA Alliance represents a partnership with RDA Kimberley, Central Desert Regional Council, and Distant Curve. The connection of two remote Indigenous communities, Engawala and Atitjere, to Nextgen fibre via long-distance point-to-point microwave demonstrates that the benefits of fibre can affordably be shared with some of the NT’s smallest communities. 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.
