Early warning “fire watch” network to protect Slovenia's forests

Fires are one of the biggest threats to the wellbeing of Slovenia’s forests: in 2003 alone, 65 fires ravaged an area of approximately 2,000 hectares.

When the Government of Slovenia decided to implement an early warning ‘fire watch’ system for early detection and response, they needed a solution that provided carrier-class availability for the real-time mission-critical application.

Our Aprisa XE point-to-point microwave radio was the only product that could meet the demands of the application, and the Aprisa XE network now covers an area of more than a thousand square kilometres.

We chose the 2 GHz Aprisa XE solution because it is the only product on the market capable of providing the capacity, the security, the link distances and the near non-line-of-sight capability needed to complete the network within budget. With the Aprisa XE we have the performance necessary to support the application. We now look forward to extending the network to protect more of our national forest.
