Unbelievable, what bonding DSL, UMTS and LTE makes possible
Reliable Internet for students
The THM Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen, formerly Fachhochschule Gießen-Friedberg, with its three campuses continuously attracts an increasing number of students. Especially THM’s dual study programs offered by the department StudiumPlus are very much appreciated. By enlarging the campus by three additional locations, the constant growth is met structurally. However, the interconnection of the new buildings and institutes posed a notable challenge. The transferred data is in part very sensitive and extensive, which is why the connection not only has to guarantee system stability but also encrypted data transmission and high bandwidths. At the same time, running costs should stay low. To meet all these demands with only one single solution, the Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen opted for the Viprinet technology.
Replacing MPLS in two countries
For many companies, replacing an existing Internet connection is a difficult step. In many cases, decision makers prefer accepting the shortcomings of an established system to the complex task of a full reorganization. Yet, such a step frequently leads to improvement in quality and to cost reductions, as can be exemplified by the TISA AG. The Swiss transportation company with its headquarters in Widnau in the Canton of St. Gallen has replaced its existing MPLS network for five sites, four of them in Switzerland and one in Austria, by a Viprinet solution – with exclusively positive effects.
E-Learning sped up
Slow Internet speeds and frequent outages were the major hurdles stopping Emmanuel Anglican College (EAC) from transitioning to a digital learning platform. Situated in Ballina in northern NSW, EAC’s regional location meant the school was literally positioned at the very end of serviceable ADSL, meaning connectivity was extremely cumbersome and unreliable. To achieve the school’s goals of enabling online learning for their students, EAC turned to Viprinet and their Australasian partner Wired Sky for the solution.
