Ethernet Direct Shares a Successful Industrial Wireless AP Application in Wildlife Monitoring

Taipei, Taiwan, 3 September, 2010 - Ethernet Direct Corporation, a professional and primary provider of industrial networking and communication solutions, is pleased to share an application of industrial-grade wireless access point in wildlife monitoring in Mexico.

Wildlife monitoring program provides valuable information about Mexico's natural areas while offering a unique and in-depth service opportunity for everyone. By focusing on indicator species, such as amphibians and birds, data can be recorded throughout the year to improve conservation efforts while exploring and learning about the environments. Wilderness areas and their inhabitants are under increasing threat from population issue and as more people realize this, so the interest in wildlife monitoring is important. Data collected through the Ethernet network provides information about monitoring - including the current focus area - and research & development, on national, regional and local scales which help in guiding site restoration and development through the real time information input.

Techniques for estimation of absolute abundance of wildlife populations have received a lot of attention in recent years. To do so, various data inputs such as species, date, latitude, longitude, environmental changes etc are needed. Cameras are connected device to the network and long distance remote transmissions are done via wireless network which is the most suitable for outdoor applications. Automated wildlife monitoring uses embedded sensor technologies via a wireless network to conduct real-time detection and localization using distributed embedded devices. The network enables remote management of the system, real-time triggering and visualization of real-time data from the field.

In outdoor application like in wildlife monitoring, IEEE 802.11b wireless communication is deployed and Ethernet Direct offers FWO-712. The combination of high processing communication with a robust IP-68 housing design makes the FWO-712 weatherproof, waterproof and dustproof. The unique product design is well-suited to explore wildlife monitoring. Due to the huge differences in climate in Mexico, wide operating temperature switches are required to perform safely, FWO-712 operates reliably from -30 to +70 deg C. In addition, the built-in Power over Ethernet design (PoE) the cost of power cable installations which is not easy to deploy in a wildlife site.
