Two Critical Components
High-speed internet and power are two critical components for Doctor Lync telemedicine to be successfully deployed on a global scale. High-speed internet is an absolute necessity for partner physicians to visually and audibly communicate with rural clinics in medically needy communities. Internet equipment only works if there is a continuous and reliable power source.
After years of research, we've concluded Starlink Internet and Bluetti solar power generators are the best solutions to meet these two critical needs. Starlink is a low latency, broadband internet system designed to connect anyone, anywhere around the world. Starlink satellites are in low orbit, enabling round-trip data time between the user and the satellite – also known as latency – to be much lower than traditional satellites in geostationary orbit.
Starlink delivers services like high-speed video streaming, which is usually impossible on other satellite broadband systems. As impressive as this is, it doesn't work without power!
This is where Bluetti comes in; these solar power generators provide the Starlink dish and router with continuous power even in the remotest villages simply through the power of the sun. Bluetti power systems are built tough, designed to be portable, and have a long battery service life. This means we won't have to replace them every couple of years which is very important for a sustainable program.
It's A Game Changer
While most satellite internet services today come from single geostationary satellites that orbit the planet at about 35,000km, Starlink is a constellation of multiple satellites that orbit the planet much closer to Earth, at about 550km, and cover the entire globe.
Because Starlink satellites are in a low orbit, the round-trip data time between the user and the satellite – also known as latency – is much lower than with satellites in geostationary orbit.
This enables Starlink to deliver services like high-speed video streaming that are usually not possible on other satellite broadband systems.
The Starlink dish and router of course need continuous power to operate, The Starlink dish and router use about 100 watts of power, that will be reduced further with software and hardware updates to allow more usage scenarios that require portable power supplies.
Our Power Solution
Unfortunately lack of any reliable power presents a real problem for many around the world, especially the 1.3 billion people who lack access to electricity.
There are more than 600 million people in sub-Saharan Africa alone that are without reliable source of electricity.
Our power solution is the state of the art Bluetti Portable Solar Power Station with Solar panels.
With Bluetti we can resolve this issue of continuous power and thus enabling our Starlink dish and router to provide quality high-speed internet even in the remotest of villages.
With the combination of Starlink and Bluetti, the medical world is about to change!
