Emerald Cube SuperDome system trial with Amey Consulting & Rail – Britannia Bridge Inspection.

On Monday 22nd August 2016, Emerald Cube delivered one of their unique magnetic mount SuperDome systems to ensure Amey Consulting & Rail had a high reliability Internet connectivity solution at the temporary site office set up for the Britannia bridge inspection programme.

The SuperDome system, up and running in just 2 minutes, enabled inspection reports and photographs from each team member to be sent back to central servers in a timely manner. In addition, all members of staff on site benefitted from keeping up to date with email and being able to quickly access the Internet. The WiFi network provided by the SuperDome system also supported VoIP calling to provide a back up voice communications service for those who were struggling with mobile network signal strength.

Future plans include extending the wireless network via Emerald Cube’s rapid deploy mesh nodes such that handheld data acquisition terminals can be deployed across the entire inspection site and log data in real-time.

Late in February, the call came from one of Emerald Cube’s partners; ‘could we provide at short notice and location to be disclosed day before event, a very robust 4G back-up data service for the live streaming of a major music event?’.

Of course the answer was YES. Emerald Cube used unique rapid deploy kit, designed and developed in-house, to provide a high quality, high bandwidth data channel, bonding priority connections to 3, EE & Vodafone 4G data services.

Our systems were live and performed faultlessly for over 3 hours, not only providing a streaming channel but also WiFi for backstage staff to monitor the live streaming and respond to social media.

This was the first time that the Foo Fighters had performed live in over a year and part of the publicity for their headlining performance on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury 2017, as announced by Michael Eavis just before the Foo’s started to play.
