FREQUENTIS Launches Cooperation with Wien Energie for Mission-Critical Mobile Broadband


On 25 November, the first voice and video connection between Frequentis and Wien Energie, Austria’s largest energy provider, was successfully tested in a field trial to demonstrate mission-critical broadband transmission in the public sector. The Frequentis technology for mission-critical services (MCX) in combination with Wien Energie's virtual mobile network allows the cost-effective implementation of highly available push-to-talk and push-to-video services, which require special networks.

"With the successful integration of mission-critical applications into the Wien Energie IT infrastructure, we created the common basis for cooperation in the field of mission-critical applications in the public sector”, explains Günter Graf, Vice President New Business Development at Frequentis. "This cooperation aims at evaluating applications in mission-critical environments based on innovative technologies available on the market and positioning them for use in the mission-critical public IT area of Wien Energie."

The technological basis is the Horizon 2020 EU project "BroadWay", in which Frequentis is leading the "BroadPort" consortium with 16 organisations from six countries.
