The Narda family is already optimistic for the possibilities that 2021 may bring, while celebrating the 25-year history between Telstra and the RadMan warning device.
RadMan, still the first choice for Telstra, Australia, even after 25 years
The first RadMan came on to the market some 25 years ago. Back then, Narda was still known as Wandel & Goltermann Safety Test Solutions. To optimize the design of the RadMan to meet user requirements, the company asked telecommunications operators around the globe for their input. This also included in-depth discussions with the Australian network operator Telstra.
Telstra is still Telstra, although Wandel & Goltermann is now known worldwide as Narda Safety Test Solutions. But despite a name change, the companies have maintained that helpful relationship, with the RadMan 2 developed from the original RadMan. Many in the two teams on both sides of the world are still active and in touch with each other. So, it comes as no surprise that RadMan 2 also contains DNA from Telstra.
Telstra has always been a pioneer in workplace safety and emphasizes the need for their staff working on radio towers to be certain that antennas are actually turned off before they start to climb the equipment. That’s why Narda implemented the “tone search function” in the RadMan 2XT. This gives proof of whether the antenna is switched off or not. This is just one example of what's called global cooperation – over generations.
As a result, the RadMan 2 also received a “preferred product” status from Telstra just like its predecessor.
If you would like to watch how Telstra’s engineers use their RadMan devices in everyday work, just take a look at the video below.
