Broadband on site

Providing Germany with nationwide coverage of the “fast Internet” service is an important task for the future. To get closer to this goal, all players active in the field of broadband supply must be brought together. Better communication and the development of strategic partnerships should speed up the nationwide roll-out of broadband and make it more efficient. Perceived and actual disadvantages of rural areas must be gradually eliminated to achieve this. The goal must be to preserve the opportunities for more innovation, growth and employment for the future.   Broadband@SME event The Broadband@SME information campaign helps entrepreneurs understand the benefits of gigabit infrastructure. The technological heart of the campaign is the information vehicle. The nine-meter-long and three-meter-high vehicle has been on the road in Germany since February.

Digital control of COVID-19 detection with ZMI

Elfershausen, 20.01.2022 – In its new release 6.4, ZMI offers the possibility to digitally control EU COVID-19 proofs of employees. Employees use the ZMI app for iOS and Android™ to scan their vaccination records, proof of convalescence or test certificates regardless of their location and thus transmit the current 3G record to their employer. Thus, the verification and control obligation pursuant to § 28b (1) and (3) Infection Protection Act (IfSG) can be mapped completely digitally. “By integrating it with digital time recording, companies and organizations do not need a separate system and at the same time can also access a comprehensive notification management system consisting of e-mail, SMS and push notifications if, for example, the necessary proof has not been provided on time,” says managing partner Steffen Berger. A role-based authorization concept also ensures that only authorized persons can access the 3G verification documentation. ZMI has become a leading
