DefProc Engineering

DefProc supports businesses to develop products and services from ideas through to fully functioning prototypes. Their ‘Push to Talk’ device reduces loneliness and social isolation by connecting isolated people in the community for a chat, via the push of a button.

DefProc Engineering partnered with the Liverpool 5G Consortium on the  Liverpool 5G Health and Social Care Testbed from April 2018 to December 2019

As a partner in the Liverpool 5G Consortium, Defproc Engineering placed over 40 Push to Talk devices with people in Liverpool, resulting in:

  • Reduced loneliness for service users
  • Reduced Healthcare costs

DefProc Engineering also provided a public access LoRaWAN Network using the Things Network with 5G backhaul.
