2016 has been quite a year in more ways than one!
On the global stage Donald Trump triumphed and is destined to become the 45th US President and in Europe, the major seismic political event was surely the decision by the people of UK to leave the EU in their Brexit referendum.
Whilst not receiving the same global media coverage, RACOM has produced its own defining moments over the last twelve months.
RACOM is proud of its reputation as a market leading, trend setter and in 2016 released a solution the SCADA market has been requesting for years; a Base Driven protocol, primarily optimized for TCP/IP (IEC104), but also suitable for collision networks when a remote is not be heard by other remotes and/or different Rx and Tx frequencies are used. This firmware has the potential to revolutionise the SCADA industry!
We also documented our RipEX Migration solution to provide an optimal solution for upgrade to a modern, future proofed radio network using staged funding and available manpower. The solution is designed to allow a scaled upgrade with no network outages in the legacy network.
On other fronts our latest microwave radio had production scaled up to maximum capacity in 2016 and is now providing effective communications within various applications. Our digital footprint continues to expand and our customers can look forward to further expansion of our Web and other online services in the coming year.
At our global Sales Camp, decisions about parameters to be incorporated into new models in each of our product lines were reaffirmed as those being requested by the market. Development remains on schedule and will enable RACOM to continue as a market leader during 2017 and beyond.
May we take this opportunity to wish all our customers, suppliers, partners, colleagues and friends a well deserved break over the festive period and a successful 2017.
