1 Extending e-health to rural areas Tuxtla, May, 2006 Alcatel Alenia Space broadband telemedicine solutions

2 Broadband satellite telemedicine - 2 All rights reserved © 2006, Alcatel Alenia Space Extending e-health to rural areas : geographical context French initiative in South East of France, Department of les Alpes Maritimes 4 valleys whose access is very difficult Landslides, snow in winter are blocking roads Aging population Local medical staff isolation

3 Broadband satellite telemedicine - 3 All rights reserved © 2006, Alcatel Alenia Space Extending e-health to rural areas : objectives Professionals Maintain general practitioners in mountainous/isolated areas Maintain qualified staffs in local hospitals Provide remote assistance / expertise to local staff to treat patients Patients Accelerate recovery at home or in usual environment Provide locally new services avoiding travelling to urban hospitals Reduce hospitalization frequency, transfer and cost Increase populations confidence into local teams Deal with medical but also social aspects Maintain quality of life

4 Broadband satellite telemedicine - 4 All rights reserved © 2006, Alcatel Alenia Space Extending e-health to rural areas : set up of a specific program To achieve the objectives, setting up of a specific program including medical training, teleconsultation & tele-expertise with relevant partners Strong partnership : General Council Alpes Maritimes telemedicine local development, contractual matters and funding, planning, communication Nice Faculty of Medicine provides medical expertise, specialists coordination, referents in local hospitals, training program Alcatel Alenia Space leader for satellite technology, telemedicine Workstation and e-health applications, network installation / configuration / optimisation, end-users support, technical training supervision, maintenance

5 Broadband satellite telemedicine - 5 All rights reserved © 2006, Alcatel Alenia Space Extending e-health to rural areas : Satellite network architecture A9780 DVB-RCS based satellite network Hub and applications platform hosted at Alcatel Alenia Space France premises and managed by AASF technical team 12 sites : 8 local hospitals (isolated area) and 4 Hospitals in Nice (urban area)

6 Broadband satellite telemedicine - 6 All rights reserved © 2006, Alcatel Alenia Space Extending e-health to rural areas : DVB-RCS technology Two ways satellite broadband technology. Ground network independency (2W architecture) of the DVB-RCS satellite solution enables customers currently suffering of the lack of terrestrial broadband networks, to access value added services DVB-RCS standard compliant : mature and fully operational technology implementing DVB-S norm (DVS-S2 ready) on the forward link & offering powerful capabilities (up to 2 Mbps return) on the return link to access and transmit over satellite from anywhere. DVB-RCS system ensures interoperability with heterogeneous network like terrestrial, mobile, wireless and secures customer investments in infrastructure It supports current and upcoming IP services, providing network functionality to support new generation of interactive and multimedia applications (high quality video based applications)

7 Broadband satellite telemedicine - 7 All rights reserved © 2006, Alcatel Alenia Space Extending e-health to rural areas : SIT installation Ease of installation of the DVB-RCS satellite terminal allows fast installation of a new site and its integration into the overall network. Ground, wall, roof Vehicle Container
