Unbelievable, what bonding DSL, UMTS and LTE makes possible
Broadband Internet in buses
The Internet is an indispensable part of our everyday lives. Whether at home or at work – most jobs at least involve e-mail communication and Internet research. Only during long-distance travels in Germany, it was not possible so far to use the Internet. The German Rail provides Wi-Fi in some of their trains. However, the usability of the Internet connection is quite unsatisfactory, mostly due to many interruptions and low bandwidth. As one of the first companies in Germany, Publicexpress from Oldenburg is using Viprinet in their buses, and can now provide its passengers fast and stable Internet while driving.
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.
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.
