More wireless Apps to hang off the NBN:
> In this project, the health worker first takes the electrocardiogram (ECG) of a patient on a battery-operated, hand-held machine. The hand-held ECG has been developed by Barc, in which using bluetooth technology the health worker transfers the data to his own mobile phone. The data is then transferred to the mobile phone of a specialist who may be based elsewhere. The specialist reads the ECG of the patient and gives advice on his condition to the health worker. So, the health worker can provide correct primary care to the patient.

> Bangalore: Cisco has unveiled its new technology called VideoStream, which will make Cisco's wireless local area network (WLAN) solutions media-ready and enable high-definition video to be scaled through Wi-Fi networks. This technology will include features that would provide better resource control, support for scalable multicasting and prioritization of different types of video stream, which will allow users to define what videos should have reserved resources across the networks.
