RedZinc deploys BlueEye Direct Video for Outpatient Clinics using Slicing Technology

PRESS RELEASE – Dublin, May 2020

RedZinc, a mobile video telemedicine software company, has responded to the Covid-19 crisis by pivoting technology developed as part of the SliceNet project into a new telemedicine solution for outpatient clinics. RedZinc was asked by the Irish Health Service Executive, to rapidly deploy their real time video communications service, BlueEye Direct, to replace face-to-face patient consultations. The idea was to facilitate people needing medical care to stay home during lockdown.

BlueEye Direct Video for Clinic, uses real-time web based video communications technology, so healthcare professionals can see their patients remotely. The platform is deployed on public cloud and delivered using WiFi and 4G – no app or set up is required by the patient. 

SliceNet research and innovation enabled the BlueEye platform to be built for rapid scaling using virtualized network functions for flexible deployment of eHealth software services. (more…)

Efacec devises SmartGrid Self-Healing for power outages using SliceNet 5G framework

As part of the SliceNet project, Efacec have devised a SmartGrid Self-Healing solution. With access to modern wireless technologies like 5G, the algorithm resorts to high-speed peer-to-peer communication to provide a fast and reliable self-healing solution. When a fault in the grid results in a power outage, the area affected by the outage is significantly reduced and the power grid operators quickly identify the location of the fault. Outage time is reduced for a large number of customers because the algorithm promptly re-configures the grid automatically, powering the healthy line section from an alternative medium voltage feeder.
