The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted all levels of Australian government departments. It has reinforced the urgency to upgrade existing infrastructure and technologies to transfer and secure data efficiently. Modern technologies are no longer an operational desire; they have become a necessity.

A better-connected workforce ensures communications with team members are more efficient. Government workers and MPs can benefit with from communications tools to remain connected in the office, at home and on the go.

Businesses must take extra steps to make sure their employees are not only connected to the Internet but also use the right equipment. It is essential that devices can prevent cyber security threats and integrate with enterprise systems that would otherwise stay within office walls.

Powertec has over 90,000 installations in Australia and New Zealand, including large companies, government departments, small to medium-sized businesses, farms, aged-care facilities, hospitals and individual consumers. Below is a case study by Powertec which details the capabilities of their cellular signal booster, Cel-Fi GO.

Case Study: Cel-Fi GO in a Government Building

Business Profile & Needs

A purpose-built, two-storey Government building located in Wacol, Queensland reported that they were receiving virtually no reception on the lower floor and sporadic connection on the upper level. The custom construction of this building includes acoustic products, incorporated into the fabric of the walls of several rooms which prevents the penetration of mobile phone signal.

It is essential for management and employees from this building to receive 3G/4G mobile signal throughout the entire building, including crucial departments. To ensure adequate signal levels are dispersed throughout the building, Powertec Telecommunications were engaged to develop a mobile signal coverage solution.
