As the wireless industry has evolved, there has been a dramatic shift in how subscribers use their devices. Today’s industrial smartphones and other sophisticated handsets are rapidly becoming fully functional Internet terminals that enable access to a variety of data collection, payment, information and related applications. Using 3GPP LTE (3rd Generation Partnership Project Long Term Evolution), which is the defector standard for the next generation of mobile access networks. Via your chosen wireless operator, we can offer high-speed OTA updates satisfying the rapidly growing subscriber appetite for remote updating; anywhere, anytime.

Our system leverages a Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) based Over-the-Air (OTA) platform to take advantage of both legacy networks as well as the emerging next generation systems. In this growing world of smartphones, data-only devices and wireless Internet usage, there is an enormous potential for expanding the role of both the Universal Integrated Circuit Card (UICC) as an identity token and the OTA platform within a given network.

An over-the-air update is the wireless delivery of new software or data to mobile phones and tablets.  Airacom provides solutions to better manage fleets of mobile devices with mobile application delivery and management to help deal with Enterprise demands, new applications and data security requirements.

Mobile Phone Expert XP-Ex-1Serious Risk Identified

By | Uncategorised

9th December 2011 – The European Commission (DG Enterprise and Industry) requires Member States to prohibit the placing on the market and withdrawal from the market of mobile phone “Expert XP-Ex-1” manufactured by Intrinsic Safety specialists, Netherlands. This mobile phone does not meet the essential safety requirements for equipment of Category 2: it can produce hazardous sparks in case of faults and therefore does not meet the requirements of the intrinsic safety protection mode as required.

Introduction:

A serious risk has been identified by an EU member state where use of the mobile phone “Expert XP-Ex-1” in potentially explosive atmospheres could lead to possible ignition danger. The mobile phone in question is manufactured by “Experts Intrinsic Safety Specialists, Groningsewet 7, 2994 LC Barendrecht, Netherlands”.

Following safeguard action approved by the EC under the ATEX Directive (Directive 94/9/EC) in respect of a mobile phone “Expert XP-Ex-1”, the Commission considers that this mobile phone fails to comply with the essential health and safety requirements referred to in Article 3 of the Directive 94/9/EC and set out in Annex 2.

The European Commission has now required Member States to prohibit the placing on the market of mobile phone “Expert XP-Ex-1” as compliant with the ATEX Directive. The official text of the Commission Decision can be found in the official journal, number L 297/66, page 2 (http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:L:2011:297:0066:0067:EN:PDF link to external website)

This mobile phone must not be used where products complying with the Equipment and Protective Systems Intended for Use in Potentially Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 1996 (as amended) are required. This problem was first identified by the German authorities who have already taken measures prohibiting the placing on the market and withdrawal from the market/retailers of this mobile phone in Germany.

Action required:

  • Suppliers; UK suppliers should immediately cease the supply of the phone.
  • Users; Avoid using the phone in potentially explosive atmospheres

Relevant legal provisions:

  • Health and Safety at Work etc Act (1974)
  • ATEX Directive (Directive 94/9/EC)
  • Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (1999)
  • Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (1998)

Advantage 1.0 News

Keeping engineers communicating within hazardous areas

By | Uncategorised

The Advantage 1.x is designed for field-workers operating within harsh and hazardous environments, requiring globally recognised certifications covering both the European ‘ATEX’ zone 1/21 standard for intrinsic safety; in addition to being certified for use within the US & Canada with ‘CSA’ Class 1, Division 1,2 certification, allowing for safe operation within hazardous areas.

Establishing effective voice and data communications for industries operating within hazardous areas and plants such as petrochemical and chemical companies is a complex and challenging business; given the nature of both gas and dust based environments posing a real risk to both human and asset life. In addition to the limited size of the market not attracting mainstream mobile device manufacturers to build such devices which meet the required global safety standards in intrinsic safety to the remote, ruggedness of operational locations with extreme heat and/or cold temperatures means the availability and choice of mobility options for such companies is limited.

Smartphones offer a do-more capability where the standard feature phone cannot, in addition to providing a much greater return on investment by adopting the use of asset management, engineer maintenance and business productivity boosting applications. However the smartphone comes with unknown, unquantifiable or unseen security risks if not addressed from the outset, which could render a companies network exposed to sensitive data open to attack, theft, hacking and possible loss of sensitive information. Cyber Criminals are pilfering a staggering volume of data and money from companies around the world. The damage from hacks costs businesses $400 billion a year, according to British insurance company Lloyd’s.

Airacom is combating cyber security through a full-stack, multi-layered security architecture with military level encrypted communications software based on private communication protocol offering superior protection against malicious interference and attacks across our range of smartphone devices and tablets; Enabling end-to-end encrypted voice calls and messaging over 3G, 4G LTE and Wi-Fi.

The Advantage 1.x offers companies who do not need or do not require a smartphone, but do want a standard rugged intrinsically safe zone 1 mobile phone to make and receive calls, text messaging, in addition to providing a lone worker / man-down solution while operating within an Ex hazardous area. Effective, simple communications with rapid deployment, minimal risk.

The AIRACOM Intrinsically Safe Advantage 1.0 mobile phone is certified for use within Ex zone 1/21 hazardous areas, designed for field-workers operating within harsh, hazardous environments. Dust- and waterproof (IP67), Bluetooth, GPRS, MMS, SMS, EDGE, 2MP Camera with video, 3G/GSM-Quad-Band, ATEX Zone 1/21 Certified, US / Canadian CSA Certified.
