More than 600 refugees will soon receive shelter at two airdomes in Stadtkrone Ost, Dortmund, which is located close to DOKOM21 and adesso. “The people are safe now, but many of them worry about their family and friends in Syria or Iraq. Together with adesso AG, we will provide free WLAN so that the new arrivals housed in the shelter may contact their loved ones at home at any time,” explains Jörg Figura, managing director of DOKOM21. For this purpose, the regional telecommunications service provider is installing two hotspots to guarantee quick and stable Internet access. DOKOM21 is financing the connection and the investment required to install the WLAN network. According to the city building authorities, the construction works are proceeding according to schedule and the first refugees should be able to move in by mid-December.

Increasing numbers of “hybrid” customers, individuals who constantly switch between on- and offline communication, mean that insurance companies must integrate their sales channels. That will require both technical measures and cultural change.
