How many times was your answer to the previous statements "TRUE" ? Your score relates to the OTN Systems' product portfolio as follows :
Some of the industries with a high score for the above questions are seaports, airports, refineries, chemical plants, etc.
A large seaport can be a size of over 100 square kilometres. The main drivers for networking are automation and security. In modern ports, container handling is done fully automatically, without the intervention of a human being. The containers are picked by unmanned cranes, put on AGV's (Automatic Guided Vehicles) and brought to the appropriate destination. All machines are controlled by computers. Security includes traditional access control systems, CCTV surveillance, but also more advanced applications like detection of nuclear material by Radiation Portal Monitors.
OTN Systems' networking products are installed in large and small ports all over the world including Rotterdam (Netherland), Yang Shan Harbour Shanghai (China) and Palma Harbour Majorca (Spain).
Large airports are villages on their own. The number of applications is virtually endless and some of them are extremely critical. Think of ATC (Air Traffic Control) which is needed to guide the planes. Radar systems, weather information, flight data, runway information, radiotelephony, CPDLC (Controller Pilot Data Link Communications), etc. It all comes together in the Traffic Control Tower. A solid network is paramount for proper operations of the ATC. But ATC communication is only a small fraction of the total communication needs encountered at an airport. Think about the different systems for security, announcement, check in, baggage handling, SCADA, etc.
OTN Systems' products are installed for ATC purposes in Schiphol (Netherlands) and ATNS (South Africa). The airports in Düsseldorf (Germany) and smaller airports like Cayenne (French Guiana) are also among our customers.
The use of fibre optics is a given in such environments as it is much safer to operate in comparison with copper. Copper lines can generate sparks resulting in explosions. The world's largest refineries have a size of more than 10 km². Various processing plants rely on accurate and timely information for their proper operation. Security and safety are key. Hence, refineries are equipped with sophisticated alarm systems and emergency response systems.
The company has systems in operation in various countries including Mexico (Pemex' Madero and Minatitlan plants) and Germany (MIDER - Mitteldeutsche Erdöl Raffinerie).
