First Satellite-Based Telemedicine Network for Bulgaria


ND SatCom and Interactive Technologies Implement Telehealth Project

Friedrichshafen, May 23, 2007 - ND SatCom, an SES ASTRA company and a leading global supplier of satellite-based broadband VSAT, broadcast, government and defence communication network solutions, has teamed up with its partner Interactive Technologies to implement Bulgaria's first satellite-based telemedicine network based on ND SatCom's core technology platform SkyWAN®. Bulgarian service provider Interactive Technologies provides the meshed VSAT network to the Bulgarian Armed Forces for applications such as live video transmissions of operations, videoconferencing, teleconferencing and file transfer between military hospitals and medical centers of competence.

Tzvetelina Dimitrova, CEO of Interactive Technologies, explains why the company chose ND SatCom for this specific project: "ND SatCom's SkyWAN® is a platform which supports the wide range of applications such as video conferencing, IP video and VoIP needed in this project. Due to its allocation on demand scheme, SkyWAN® offers our end customer an optimized and dynamic bandwidth usage." Dieter Dreizler, Director Sales of ND SatCom, says: "ND SatCom's SkyWAN® technology supports the network's performance and offers unique redundancy features. Effectiveness and reliability are key factors in telemedicine communication. Given that parts of Bulgaria are earthquake endangered regions and terrestrial lines might fail, satellite communication is the best solution for providing independent and consistent telemedicine services."
