MARCH 2018 – ATLANTA, GEORGIA USA - Strata Worldwide announces StrataConnect DigitalBRIDGE™, a new underground network solution created through a recently established partnership with RFI Technology Solutions of Australia.

Available immediately in North, South and Central America, as well as South Africa through Strata Worldwide distribution, StrataConnect DigitalBRIDGE™ is a patent-pending coaxial cable technology for high-speed digital data transfer, telemetry and Voice-over-IP (VoIP) communications in underground environments. The system bridges the gap between existing technologies by providing a simple-to-install, low cost option for expanding underground networks beyond the reach of fiber.

“Strata is very pleased to finalize this agreement with RFI Technology Solutions, as it supports Strata’s growth in underground communications with the continued approach of bringing novel systems to market,” states Mike Berube, chief executive officer of Strata Worldwide. “The heart of the DigitalBRIDGE system is a specially designed coaxial cable that transfers electrical power as well as data. Typically these cables are strictly data, so having the power and data in a single cable results in significant time and cost savings for the mines.”

DigitalBRIDGE ™ coax cable provides complete network flexibility with the ability to add endpoint devices at any point along the cable; Wi-Fi access points, gas sensors, atmospheric monitors, RFID readers, cameras and more. DigitalBRIDGE™ cable segments can extend up to 6,500 feet (2,000 meters) without the need for a repeater or dedicated power source.
