The Communication Gateway is a core component of the OPS Communications Network.
The Communications Gateway interfaces with both the remote OPS product devices and the internet.
Each Communications Gateway consists of the following;
- Gateway device
- Data cable and power supply
The Communications Gateway needs to be located near an internet connection, typically a homestead.
The Communications Gateway needs to be mounted on an elevated point, typically a radio antenna mast being 10-15 m high. While it is generally advantageous to mount the antenna as high as possible, the required antenna height will vary as each customer installation will have individual needs and circumstances.
The antenna will be located at the top of the mast. The Gateway device will be mounted high on the mast and near the antenna.
A data cable will run from the Gateway device and will connect to an internet router inside the homestead.
