Viprinet Targets UK Rail with Horsebridge
Viprinet has announced a tie-up with Gloucestershire-based solutions provider Horsebridge Network Systems to spearhead its development of the UK rail market.

Capital FM Live from Mexico
Global Radio has hired two Viprinet multi-channel routers for a week of live broadcasts on Capital FM from Cancun, Mexico. One was used with three DSL connections in Cancun, and the other with two DSLs at Capital's studios in Leicester Square.
