Installation of HITnet kiosks in remote Australian communities
HITnet was approached by NPY Women’s Council, Alice Springs, to deliver and install three HITnet touchscreen kiosks into some of the most remote locations in Australia – Ernabella, Mutitjulu and Warburton in the remote Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara lands.
Neoproducts, HITnet’s global hardware provider, considers these HITnet kiosks to be the most remote on the planet! The installation technician covered 2,500 kilometres on unsealed roads taking seven days to cover the three sites. All three kiosks are connected to the internet and are remotely monitored. Their usage statistics show that the kiosks were well used during their first six months of operation.
