Unbelievable, what bonding DSL, UMTS and LTE makes possible
Animal welfare with new connection
Since 1881, the Deutsche Tierschutzbund e.V. (German Animal Protection Association) endeavors to raise people‘s awareness of animal welfare. Today, this idea is more important than ever, which is why the holding organization of numerous German animal welfare groups emerged as a very modern institution with several locations. Unfortunately, the interconnection of these sites was not able to keep up with the progress of the organization. Until now, the system used so far was complicated and unadaptive to modern demands. Moreover, it was contrary to the ambition of downsizing the IT department. Here, the Viprinet technology provided the ideal solution.
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.
Connecting regional offices and ships
Connecting offices all over the world and meeting increasing demands for bandwidth and reliable access to mission critical applications is a common challenge for modern global corporations. Because their network infrastructure has developed over the course of their growth, many of them still rely on expensive, low capacity MPLS lines. Sonardyne, a pioneer in providing maritime sensing services for over forty years, is replacing an existing MPLS infrastructure with a robust Viprinet VPN solution for interoffice and mobile communications. This UK corporation, headquartered in Yateley, Hampshire, has remote offices in Brazil, Singapore, and the USA, as well as several research and development ships. Interoffice and mobile communications are critical to their operations. Their regional offices increasingly depend on access to centralized ERP and CRM systems, and their ships need reliable and continuous connectivity, especially to accurately report GPS correction data in a timely fashion.
