Unbelievable, what bonding DSL, UMTS and LTE makes possible
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.
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.
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.
