Aid and NGO
When disaster strikes and terrestrial networks go down, you know you can rely on Inmarsat to communicate.
With our voice and always-available broadband data services, you can restore essential connectivity independently of local networks, enabling humanitarian teams to co-ordinate a rapid and effective first response to disasters.
We enable first responders to be on the phone with fresh updates as soon as they arrive, streaming live video of the disaster scene, sending real-time data on the rescue operations and connecting with other aid agencies to co-ordinate crisis relief.
Following the initial response, when focus shifts to meeting survivors’ basic needs, BGAN helps ensure you get aid to where it's needed most. Field workers can set up a mobile broadband office with the same BGAN service they used on arrival.
BGAN and IsatPhone Pro help your people stay safe and in constant touch while in the field. And in their free time they can phone family and friends and go online – just like they do back home.
Agencies helping to facilitate longer-term development can use BGAN to give field teams access to project management tools and other corporate applications. Inmarsat services can also enable the establishment of community services, such as payphones and tele-centres offering banking and remote healthcare.
As the situation improves and you move into reconstruction mode, BGAN and IsatPhone Pro continue to provide essential connectivity for managing multiple development projects and for staying in touch when your field workers travel to remote areas.
