Unbelievable, what bonding DSL, UMTS and LTE makes possible
Connecting a North Sea island
The island of Wangerooge in the German North Sea is not only a good place for travelers or sea birds. Here, the Institute of Oceanography of the University of Hamburg operates a measuring station for the WERA-system to monitor surface current velocities, ocean wave height and wind with the help of HF radar waves at different places at the North Sea. As the station was installed in 2009, the carrier attached great importance to a reliable data transfer. Moreover, the new technology should provide steady remote access for maintenance operations. Thus, a Viprinet solution was chosen.
Small car, big Internet
Important news is broadcast from big cities; the actual event, however, often takes place in far remote areas. To report from there on an event using digital broadcasting technology can be managed only via expensive satellite technology due to lack of network coverage and bandwidth of individual providers. For that, so-called SNG (Satellite News Gathering) vehicles have to be provided which transmit video and audio signals to the respective broadcast stations via satellite links. With their mobile subcompact hotspot, tividoo, a company from Langenlonsheim, Germany, provides an efficient and economical alternative.
Saving lives by remote diagnosis
Early and appropriate treatment in medical emergencies can save lives and minimize long-term harm. Ideally, treatment should start in the ambulance while it is on its way to the hospital. Furthermore, if the patient has a potentially serious condition, directing them to the appropriate hospital and unit is also vital, so the medical team there can ensure that the necessary treatment resources are available. This is where telemedicine and eHealth solutions come into play. Transmitting relevant patient data like physiological parameters to specialists in the hospital, and making it possible for the ambulance crew to stream high-definition video from the ambulance facilitates major improvements in patient care. Falck Group, a leading
Nordic-based health solution company with a global presence in 45 countries, has equipped ambulances in Denmark with Viprinet technology to enable the transmission of diagnostic information including live video images directly to medical professionals.
