Monthly Contrail Training Series Live Webinars:

Dec 13, 2018: ALERT2™ Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) Management

ALERT2, the next generation of wireless communication protocol used in real-time hydrological and meteorological monitoring systems, uses a GPS-based TDMA scheme where every device has its own assigned time slot in which to transmit and avoid data transmission collisions. In this Contrail training session, you’ll learn how to configure and manage your ALERT2 network, frequencies, and TDMA network design. Understand, visualize and design your network, tracking capacity, available capacity, and data latency.

Note: ALERT2 TDMA Manager is available only with Contrail Base Station and Contrail Server (not available with Contrail Web).
