Multimedia platforms for e-learning activities can be realized based on distributed system architectures with data transmission, storage, processing and data representation capabilities. For live data transfer, different communication technologies can be used, like TCP/IP, DDE (Dynamic Data Exchange) and DataSocket or WiFi, WiMax. In this paper are presented the guidelines for an implementation solution of a multimedia platform used for distance learning experiments. The proposed multimedia platform make use of WiFi transmissions technology in order to realise wireless access to the e-learning platform of the users or between user’s laboratories placed at reduced distances (in a building). Using combined WiFi and Internet network it is are also intend to realize e-learning activities between Pitesti University and other three Universities (Politechnica University, University from Cluj and University from Iasi). The connection between these locations is realised through secured VPN tunnels.
