At Managed Services Australia, we embrace challenges as opportunities. Our recent project at Chisolm Prison in Lara, Victoria, is a testament to that. Tasked with the significant challenge of ensuring seamless wireless connectivity within the prison, we delivered a state-of-the-art solution that has set a benchmark in prison tech infrastructure.
While this isn’t our first rodeo (we previously established a similar system at Ravenhall Prison in 2018), Chisolm Prison posed unique challenges. The main problem? A remote location over 5km from the nearest mobile tower and already-constructed prison walls acting as formidable barriers, massively disrupting connectivity.
John Holland and its partners had their hands full with the construction, but the technology side was proving to be a hurdle. The requirement was clear: a robust wireless network that facilitates seamless phone and internet services across the prison, with a focus on the offices and primary operational areas.
