[JoongAng Ilbo , Business, Industry, October 7 2008] The next generation of wireless broadband

Lee Sun-jong, who works on the 119 rescue team at Bundang Fire Station, recently handled an emergency case using wireless broadband.

As he transported a patient to a nearby hospital, a doctor was able to send him tips after receiving the patient’s vital signs from the ambulance running at 110 kilometers per hour (68.4 mph).

“Quicker first-aid treatment was possible because I could report the patient’s conditions through WiBro,” Lee told reporters earlier this month. WiBro is an abbreviation for wireless broadband.
