When operating industrial facilities, chemical plants, power stations, construction sites, ports and other logistical hubs, or, for the short-term commissioning of facilities - to implement security tasks efficiently, there often exists the need to be provided with a capable infrastructure for data communication which is both - fast and mobile.
Voice, sensor data, videos and other supervision information as well as office communication documents must be transmitted via this communication infrastructure. The entire system start-up schedule often depends on the availability of necessary infrastructure, which again directly affects the costs balance of the business. The efficiency of complex logistic processes increases through computer-assisted data collection and immediate transmission of data from the mobile environment, since this saves expenses for subsequent data alignment and adjustment.
HiMoNN provides a flexible and secure broadband communications solution that is automatically set up and immediately available between vehicles on the spot. With this - different client devices as well as sensors can communicate in real time. Additionally, HiMoNN has a GPS functionality to visualize the current position of the HiMoNN devices in a monitoring display. Transmissions to other networks are possible via mobile, satellite, directional radio or terrestrial networks. This allows for example the direct transmissions of current production and monitoring data of a distant system to the company’s control centre.
HiMoNN is based on ad-hoc networking technology and thus does not require any stationary communications infrastructure. The ability of each communication node simultaneously to act as a relay increases the possible distances between senders and receivers and permits establishing a communications network over several square kilometres. This way the network can be spread to locations that are not covered by an existing communications infrastructure, as may be necessary with operations in production or storage facilities, where steel and concrete prevent connection to external radio communications networks.
HiMoNN optimizes itself automatically depending on the current scenery conditions and the dynamically changing positions of its users. It is simple to operate, allows to quickly deploying a broadband network at any location and can thus enable a faster start of production.
A major part of the information exchanged in industry is generally classified as sensitive. For these a secure transfer as well as protection from unauthorized access by any third parties is an important prerequisite. Confidentiality and integrity of information transferred via HiMoNN is always guaranteed by the application of powerful security technologies recommended by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI). The automatic and user-friendly configuration of HiMoNN as well as the robust structure of all components is basis for the reliability of the system.
HiMoNN systems apply standardized technologies and interfaces. This allows for easy integration of countless existing client devices and applications and ensures the adaption to future developments. Usage charges and costs as they arise in the use of mobile or rental of data lines are not levied for the operation of HiMoNN.
