Press release from: Ammonit Measurement GmbH

Berlin, 11 October 2011. In order to ensure reliable communication with its data loggers the leading wind measurement expert Ammonit has implemented Net-work Manager tools developed by Lanedo. As data loggers are mainly operated in remote areas around the globe and store valuable measurement data, stable communication via modem is essential.

After unsatisfactory results with off-the-shelf hardware, Ammonit has been collaborating with Lanedo, a company that is specialized in developing software for open source communities. Ammonit’s latest development, 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 plugins for 2G / 3G broadband modems as well as a plugin for Iridium satellite modems. Using these technologies Ammonit ensures reliable communication between the data logger and its host PC via several modems.

Network Manager is a software tool used to simplify computer network configuration on Linux-based systems maintained by Red Hat.
