NEC technology showcase at Field Service Management Conference

This week, NEC Australia is exhibiting at the Field Service Management Conference at the Australian Technology Park, Sydney. On display is the NEC Mobile Access Controller (MAC), an in-vehicle communications platform that provides reliable voice and data coverage for remote field based and emergency workers, as well as significant OH&S benefits.

The innovative MAC technology improves fleet contact, safety, efficiency and reduces cost. Its higher levels of network coverage are achieved by best utilising the coverage of existing networks without requiring investment in the expansion of private radio networks.

For many organisations operating vehicle fleets, communications plays an important role in productivity. However, several concepts introduced under new state government laws in the Model Work Health and Safety Act, mean that fleet communications is likely to gain importance in determining the safety of the vehicle as a workplace. Any consideration of fleet safety compliance will need to factor in what is ‘reasonably practicable’ to have avoided an incident, as well as what steps could have been taken to minimise or eliminate the risk of harm.

Reliable voice and data communications

When a leading Australian energy utility required the provision of a safe working environment with a comprehensive emergency reporting system and reliable voice and data messaging communications in urban, rural and remote environments, they turned to NEC to show them how.

NEC Australia recently rolled out a comprehensive emergency reporting system and a mobile communications platform to an organisation’s 2000+ mobile workforce. The implemented solution was based on NEC Australia’s sophisticated Mobile Access Controller (MAC), an in-vehicle technology platform that provides fleet operators with highly reliable voice and data services in the field, as well as significant OH&S benefits.
