Tropos Wireless Mesh Networking
Tropos Networks is the market leader in intelligent IP broadband mesh networks that help customers build greener, safer, smarter communities.
Dynamic Wireless's Principal Consultant has worked on one of the world's largest, multi-application Tropos deployed Smart Grid networks for a major Middle East utility company. In addition, he has worked on Tropos mesh proposals for additional cities and smart communities in the Middle East, including Dubai Internet City and the Palm Jumeriah and Palm Jebel Ali Islands, and various municipal city deployments in Iraq and Saudi Arabia.
Our cutting edge knowledge in the Wireless Mesh space allows us to provide companies in Australia with the dedicated expertise required for such Wireless Mesh and Smart Grid projects; and as such we have provided GPS-calibrated AirMagnet surveys for mining, resort and campus environments in Australia. Talk to us today about how we can design the optimal mesh network solution for you.
Our Boots-On-The-Ground Experience?
Some of the prominent regional projects we have performed onsite include:
- Tropos Wireless Mesh GPS-Calibrated AirMagnet Site Survey for Coal Mine Sites in Central Queensland.
- Tropos Wireless Troubleshooting, GPS-calibrated AirMagnet site survey, and wireless mesh optimisation for remote mine village sites in Central Western Australia.
- Tropos Wireless Mesh Outdoor Guest Coverage Surveying and Optimisation

Want to test Wireless Mesh Coverage?
Dynamic Wireless offers wireless mesh coverage proof-of-concept services via our Tropos MetroMesh Router. We loan out our Tropos router to customers wanting to prove wireless coverage outdoors, and is capable of being mounted to any pole vertically, horizontally and even angled poles.
We can adjust the attenuation on the RF transmit power of the Tropos router to simulate any type of setup you need, whether it be connecting smart phones in an inner-city CBD environment, connecting smart utility meters, surveillance cameras or connecting in-vehicle wireless devices. Our mesh router is capable of having its transmit power tuned from 14dBm (25mW) to a massive 36dBm (4000 mW).
Contact Us to discuss your proof-of-concept requirements and obtain a quote.
