Communications Systems

Wherever technical systems exchange data or people contact each other across space and time, communication systems of various specifications are involved. The requirements with regard to data bandwidth, latency (delay), confidentiality, availability and security vary greatly.

SCS has broad experience in the development of communication systems. The technologies required consist of wireless as well as wired data transfer, media conversion, data compression and data analysis in real-time, decoding and encoding, encryption and storage.

Examples of such projects include Rega’s (Swiss Air Rescue) REMICO mobile radio system or the voice over IP communication infrastructure for the life-saving telephone watches manufactured by Limmex:
