To support telemedicine applications in Kazakhstan as part of a telemedicine pilot project, ND SatCom delivered 16 SkyWAN terminals. SkyWAN connects medical centers, hospitals and medical universities throughout Kazakhstan. Due to lack of terrestrial infrastructure in remote areas, satellite communication is the only solution in this country for fast and reliable connections between rural areas and urban medical institutions. The telemedicine pilot project has been implemented in two of the 17 Kazakh regions. A follow-up contract for 22 more terminals in three other regions has been awarded recently. Applications supported by this system include live operations and emergency teleconferencing.
