Unbelievable, what bonding DSL, UMTS and LTE makes possible
Industrial park going broadband
The industrial park in Seligenporten near Nuremberg, Germany, actually has everything a tradesman needs: The highway A9 is less than three kilometers away; the major city Nuremberg is just around the corner, and all infrastructure needed for living and working already exists – except a powerful Internet connection. The enterprises in this industrial park have to cope with a 2 Mbps connection, and none of the regional telecommunications providers plans to change that anytime soon – unless of course the local companies contribute EUR 250,000 to the total development costs. Understandably so, this is out of the question for small and medium-sized businesses. One company, however, has become a pioneer in regards to using alternative technologies by successfully relying on Viprinet: OM Klebetechnik.
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.
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.
