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.
Internet for recovery
Denmark is the leading European country when it comes to using eHealth infrastructures. Especially concerning the treatment of COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), Denmark makes use of a trendsetting telemonitoring system for monitoring and treatment of COPD patients in their own home. This way, about 40% of treatment costs can be saved compared to stationary hospital stays. Another important aspect is the comprehensive monitoring of all relevant data via the Internet. If this monitoring is not guaranteed, sudden exacerbation of the patient‘s condition cannot be treated fast enough. The COPD telemonitoring solution developed by Viewcare in cooperation with Danish Viprinet partner Sharecon is one of the most up-to-date of its kind, and stands out by its extremely high availability.
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.
