North East veterinary specialists Wear Referrals looked to build a state of the art Emergency Hospital and Veterinary Surgery in Bradbury, Stockton on Tees. Their ultimate aim is to be a centre of excellence, both clinically and educationally and needed to have the infrastructure for their telecommunication and connectivity to help them achieve that.
They had a vision of State of the Art facility with MRI , CT Scanner, Fluoroscopy, Chemotherapy ward, Rehabilitation ward and it’s very own lecture theatre.
The location for the new premises had to be great for access for patients. They found the ideal semi-rural location, just off the A1 motorway. Giving easy accessibility and great location for development; however the location is in a notorious internet black spot.
After assessing a range of options, the Odyssey technicians installed stand-alone microwave mast dedicated to Wear Referrals. This provides internet speeds of up to 20mb – more than enough to simultaneously cope with the demands of the company’s medical equipment, and at a fraction of the cost of a leased line.
Wear Referrals’ facility is equipped with a range of advanced medical equipment to treat pets of all sizes; some of equipment will consume large amounts of data whilst in operation, such as the MRI scanner.
Under normal circumstances the Odyssey team would have prescribed the installation of a leased line, however, in this case it would have not been a cost-effective solution.
