Wireless products company Ruckus Wireless has teamed up with Easyweb Digital to provide free wireless connectivity to 25 remote locations in the Northern Territory.

A statement from Ruckus said Easyweb Digital had worked on connectivity projects for a number a communities and was, thus, selected by Tourism NT to help connect tourists at remote NT locations.

“Easyweb Digital connects communities across Australia by building innovative, reliable and simple-to-manage networks,” said Easyweb business manager Daniel Sacchero.

“But in remote locations, and given the extreme geographic and weather conditions in NT, this is a real challenge.”

Ruckus Networks’ T301 and T300 outdoor access points were installed in remote parts of the NT to reduce the chances of Wi-Fi connectivity deterioration and overcome the weather challenges.

The Encapto public Wi-Fi management platform allowed Easyweb Digital to set up dedicated portals to allow local tourism operators to advertise.

The service has provided access for domestic and international visitors and also aided local community members who require online engagement. At many sites, it is the only cost-effective Internet connectivity available.

“We are proud of this collaboration with Easyweb Digital to bring connectivity to the most remote places,” said Carl Jefferys, ANZ country manager, Ruckus Networks.

“Not only is this a step towards making a huge difference in people’s everyday lives, but it also creates new business opportunities for local organisations with limited means.”
