Business Cases


Monitoring Radio FM Transmitters Networks

Elenos is the manufacturer of FM radio transmitters sold all over the world. Radio transmitters are located in hard to reach places, like the top of a mountain, therefore their maintenance activity is rather expensive and complicated, since it requires the physical presence of a technician that investigates the cause of the disservice.

Since radios rely heavily on commercials for their income, having a long downtime could greatly harm their business, so the time between a technical incident and its solution needs to be as brief as possible.
Thanks to SpaceBunny monitoring the network of transmitters is painless and fast, and thanks to the analysis of the constant data stream of operative parameters received by the platform, Elenos can predict when a device will require an unplanned maintenance activity, and a technician can be dispatched to reduce the downtime to a minimum.

The end users can now access a Web interface that enables these new features:

  • monitor the operating parameters
  • monitor alarms triggered by the transmitter in real time
  • power management planning
  • statistics
