Satellite communication for Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Recovery

When lives depend on communication

When natural disasters and premeditated incidents occur, cloud-based applications allow governments, NGOs, and humanitarian organisations to mount a coordinated crisis response, often preventing loss of life. These applications depend on a reliable, high-quality communications infrastructure. When terrestrial networks are destroyed, satellite systems can rapidly restore communication lines.
