A common cause
Why is SWITCH participating in different cooperative projects? Because we know that a healthy knowledge and education circuit is a key requirement for innovativeness both inside and outside of Switzerland.
Radio networks for research
Many geographically remote research stations around the globe have one thing in common: they lack a reliable Internet connection. SWITCH has launched a project with three Swiss partners here which provides an inexpensive remedy: mobile wireless-LAN devices at different locations that link up to form a "mesh" network. Thus, the data is transmitted securely and flexibly.
