AirBridge Networks has launched ARNI Control, an all-in-one connectivity solution for disaster-prone areas in Queensland and remote Australia. 

ARNI Control (AirBridge Rapid Network Infrastructure) offers high-speed connectivity through a dual Vocus Satellite - Starlink service, ensuring fast and reliable communication in emergencies. 

The system also includes Wi-Fi, CB, mobile service boosters, and long-distance PTMP for uninterrupted communication. 

It features a power management solution with an inverter generator, solar panels, lithium-ion batteries, a battery management system, and a 2000W inverter for resilience in remote and disaster-prone regions, with a partnership with REDARC Australia.

AirBridge Networks' founder and managing director Doug Stephens emphasised the importance of ARNI in serving regional Australia's unique communication needs, highlighting its transformative potential, especially for remote communities.

“We are using the absolute best of technology and components for ARNI – in terms of communications, this is regional Australia’s best defence,” he said.
