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.
Reliable e-cash in 120+ stores
Buying groceries has never been easier than today: If the supermarket of your choice doesn’t have an online shop yet, at least it doesn’t require you to carry cash around; just choose the articles you need and purchase them with your credit card – the Internet makes it all possible. However, as supermarkets become more and more dependent on the Internet, their requirements regarding a powerful connection increase as well: POS systems are centralized, alarms are connected with security services, telephony is realized via VoIP; some stores even offer e-learning for their employees which can be accessed 24/7. All these applications need a reliable and high-bandwidth connection. This is why one of the largest food retailers of the Netherlands, Detailresult Group, chose to install a Viprinet solution in their stores.
Internet for every contingency
One second of inattentiveness is enough to risk a major fire. The fire brigade rush to the place of the incident, and soon, questions arise: Are enough fire fighters present? Are we equipped with the right tools? Which chemicals need to be neutralized? These are questions for experts which are best kept in the command center to be available for more than one emergency team. However, only talking about the scene and describing the difficulties is fairly unfeasible, so emergency services need a stable and reliable mobile Internet connection that is suitable for video streaming regardless of location as well as of eventual bystanders calling or texting friends and family. Incendium, a Danish live streaming company, meets these demands by using Viprinet technology.
