Nethercomm Corporation, the leading innovator of subterranean broadband communications announces a new technology to detect, classify and locate third-party tampering as well as damage to natural gas pipelines.
These new safety and security applications of Broadband-in-Gas can not only provide system integrity monitoring of metallic and non-metallic natural gas pipelines but can even distinguish excavation of the gas pipelines and the exact location of the excavation or disturbance.
Nethercomm inserts high bandwidth wireless signals into natural gas pipelines carrying vast amounts of data. By analyzing changes in the data passed through the natural gas pipeline, specifically changes caused by excavation, tampering or damage, variations in the natural gas pipelines infrastructure can be identified and acted upon in real-time, around the clock.
NethercommÂs Broadband-in-Gas technology makes use of Ultra Wideband communications technology which allows BiG to deliver wireless broadband communications through natural gas pipelines without using an RF Carrier for its signal. Instead, data is transmitted using time and amplitude modulated pulses of less than one nanosecond in duration. Broadband-in-Gas offers the most secure, unmatched levels of broadband transmission technology available today, ultimately creating tremendous new markets for content providers and safety through the detection of damage or tampering for the Gas Distribution Industry.
"A single incident, accidental or not, can be devastating, resulting in death and loss of critical infrastructuresÂ said Ann Nunally, president of Nethercomm Corporation. She went on to say, ÂNethercommÂs technology addresses the complex dilemma facing the Natural Gas Industry by detecting and alarming for damage or tampering within the natural gas pipelines and the overall integrity, safety and security of our countries Natural Gas Distribution Infrastructure.
Nethercomm is a private Delaware Corporation, developing innovative and proprietary communication technologies for the fast-growing broadband and wireless markets. The companyÂs portfolio of patents encompasses what is believed to be the fundamental subterranean broadband communications and includes additional patents pending to protect its technologies and architectures.
