Unbelievable, what bonding DSL, UMTS and LTE makes possible
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.
Mobile radio broadcasting in Norway
Outdoor live broadcasts from remote areas are generally considered the ultimate test of mobile network solutions. Industry requirements for these kinds of deployments include many challenging features, all of which come with the expectation of low operational costs: ample bandwidth, continuous uptime, low latency, and quick, simple set-up. P4 Radio, Norway’s leading private radio station has nearly a 25% market share, a million daily listeners, covers many tours, and frequently broadcasts from remote locations. To meet their exacting standards, they deploy Viprinet technology for mobile and remote connectivity.
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.
