Ammonit says it has implemented Lanedo's Network Manager software tool in order to ensure reliable communication with Ammonit's data loggers and wind measurement tools.
Because data loggers are mainly operated in remote areas and store valuable measurement data, stable communication via modem is essential, Ammonit explains.
Ammonit's latest development, the Meteo-40 data logger, uses a Linux-embedded subsystem with Network Manager for communication. Lanedo has enhanced the support of Network Manager for RS232 modems and developed plug-ins for 2G and 3G broadband modems, as well as a plug-in for Iridium satellite modems, the companies explain.
Network Manager is a software tool used to simplify computer network configuration on Linux-based systems maintained by Red Hat.
