Building a network without a network

When you build a national e-network connecting students and researchers, you usually start out by burying fibre, and buying and installing equipment. But what do you do, if none of that is possible? You focus on making a difference for your users, and that is exactly what the American University of Beirut has been doing.

Keeping the medical data in Japan’s university hospitals safe in case of disaster

The Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011 caused significant damage to local hospitals in the disaster area, destroying medical information systems in the hospitals and losing patients’ important medical records. The losses prompted Japan’s university hospitals to jointly construct a new backup system that keeps their medical backup data in remotely located areas.

Solving problems in hi-tech environments before they occur

Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to solve problems before they occur? Everybody would probably agree on that. But unfortunately, predicting the future is quite difficult. And it gets even more complicated, when it comes to complex systems, like industrial production lines, wind farms or a fleet of vehicles. But now a group of European researchers and industry experts have joined forces to build a system of sensors and computers that, through monitoring and analysing, might help us see and solve future problems in high tech environments.
