VipCall Case Study 1 (Remote Locations)
In 2006 Global Teleports was invited to provide a bespoke communications solution for the military in Afghanistan/Pakistan.
The remit was to provide a man portable solution to provide ISDN via IP to 8 secure phones in each country. Our solution was based on VipCall, housed in a single flight case with a free standing 1.2 metre antenna using only 5 Watts (Afg)/8 watts (Pak) RF power.
We delivered to time and under budget having trained the Special forces personnel in how to deploy and operate the units both of which operated faultlessly throughout their 12 month contact lifetime and, in Pakistan, proved more portable and more efficient that the “standard military solution” which had a 2.4 metre antenna with 200Watts in a rack of equipment that required a fork lift truck to move it.
