Kayentis is using Sprint’s 3G/4G USB modem in the pharmaceutical and health care industry in Philadelphia.
The new 3G/4G WiMax service lets users gain access to data and thus be more productive while on the go. This new service also allows users to browse the web from anywhere within the network. Sprint WiMax service began in Philadelphia on October 25,2009.
“Communicating by our North American executives with each other and with our pharmaceutical customers has been greatly improved with the use of the Sprint 3G/4G broadband cards,” said Guy Maestre, vice president, North American Operations, Kayentis. “The new e-mail and data exchange speeds that we see when acquiring research data, RFP information, and accessing our applications in our central servers through the Web are truly remarkable.”
WiMax is valuable in health care because data-rich information like X-Rays and medical records must be accessed and transferred quickly during emergencies. Many equipment suppliers are also setting up smart grids and other services for municipalities to share data. It can accelerate the approval of clinical trials for pharmaceutical products, helping emergency waiting-list patients that need the newest pharmaceuticals or transplant.
“Sprint 4G will be a major shift in the way businesses use bandwidth-intensive mobile devices and offers a glimpse of the future of wireless technology for an eager market,” said Todd Rowley, vice president, Sprint 4G.
“Sprint 4G customers will enjoy a blazing-fast mobile broadband experience and much higher quality video conferencing, not to mention flexibility with IT spending by using 4G as a primary or backup connection rather than a wired T1, which costs more and takes longer to install.”
Sprint owns a controlling interest in Clearwire Corp. Clearwire owns the spectrum space necessary to launch WiMax. The company hopes to have WiMax networks available in Houston, Boston, New York and San Francisco by the end of 2010. Sprint will look to expand its market share by being the first to offer high speed mobile connection before its competitors can roll out existing LTE networks.
