19 Nov Call from Saudi Arabia
Successful Internet calling when other system failed
We were in Saudi Arabia earlier this year with XCommNet and aeroSPARX to supply an innovative technology capable of streaming live 360 from an acrobatic aircraft. This was the Saudi Arabia National day and it was spectacular! Fireworks were coming from the ground and from the aircraft while performing their aerobatic maneuver and you could be right next to the pilot by wearing virtual reality headset. The preparation for such event took several days on site and for those who need to stay in touch with their businesses, being out reach is not an option. Our VoIP communication system enabled a perfect communication bridge between the UK and Saudi Arabia where other popular internet communicating system failed to deliver.
Emergency calling back home
Unfortunately one of our team had an elderly relative with a medical emergency in the UK and he had to spend several hours calling back home. This could have easily ended up with a phone bill of several thousand pounds. Luckily our colleague could take full advantage of our communication bridge with the UK and make calls at local rate and he was able to avoid intercontinental roaming charges and a bill shock. His relative is now fine also thanks to the medical details that were promptly given to the paramedics.
