Selecting an appropriate wireless network access gateway will help to overcome challenges associated with the management of resource-hungry applications. NetComm Wireless' industrial-grade wireless M2M products use 3G networks to provide cost-effective high performance data communication capabilities for virtually any resource-hungry application. Products are developed to meet the latest requirements of modern telemetry, M2M communication, WAN and legacy serial applications to effectively address a range of SCADA solutions.

At the forefront of Nirosoft's distinctly flexible approach are BOOT (Build-Own- Operate-Transfer) packages, which enable treatment systems, service agreements and commercial arrangements to be customised to individual requirements. The advantages of BOOT include faster project delivery, maximum operational efficiency, as well as optimised water quality and quantity. Nirosoft offers its clients complete turnkey solutions -- the company designs, constructs, finances, operates and maintains advanced water and wastewater treatment systems. The company delivers tailor-made water solutions for the mining industry, municipalities, agricultural sector and industrial operations, backed by flexible financing. Nirosoft offers clients the choice of purchasing a system outright, leasing, or selecting a financing option to suit their individual circumstances. Nirosoft's innovative medium- size project finance approach transforms the way mid-sized water treatment facilities are built, operated and financed in Australia. Build Under this traditional model, Nirosoft custom designs, builds and installs the equipment purchase. Ongoing support through periodic servicing and maintenance can be provided under a separate contract. BO (Build-Own) Nirosoft's Build-Own option enables the client to defer capital expenditure. In addition to designing, building and installing the system, Nirosoft also finances the equipment purchase. BOO (Build-Own-Operate) A Build- Own-Operate agreement reduces the client's business risk, provides faster delivery and guarantees water quality. Nirosoft can entirely operate and maintain the water treatment system on the client's behalf. Charges apply per cubic metre of water produced. Build-Own-Operate-Transfer (BOOT) BOOT preserves the client's operating capital while Nirosoft finances the project construction, billed monthly in set instalments. Under the BOOT model, charges only apply after water is supplied or wastewater is treated. At the end of the project term (typically five to 20 years), ownership is usually transferred to the client. The client has the option of taking over the operation of the facility, or choosing Nirosoft to continue this role. Purchase Outright, Lease or Finance Nirosoft offers highly competitive pricing on the outright purchase of water supply and wastewater treatment systems. Alternatively, leasing provides immediate reduction of operating expenses. When availability of capital is limited, a leasing or finance solution enables water treatment needs to be met immediately. There are also practical advantages to leasing equipment. A leasing arrangement can be used to thoroughly evaluate a product, prior to purchasing. It may also enable rapid deployment of a back-up or replacement system in an emergency. Nirosoft Australia is part of the RWL Water Group, a worldwide supplier of water, wastewater treatment systems and waste-to-energy solutions.
