In today’s world, communication is everything. Without access to established communication channels like cellular service and internet connectivity, business – and life – can come to a grinding halt
Staying connected continuously can be problematic at times, especially for those who perform mission critical business functions in remote areas or emergencies. When landlines are compromised, how do you maintain vital communications?
Mobile connectivity solutions play a pivotal role in ensuring that first responders, businesses and critical infrastructure have reliable communications to keep them operational.
When communication is vital to your business, losing connectivity even for a few moments can have devastating consequences. Not only are there financial risks, but in a crisis, communication breakdowns can make the difference between life and death.
Whether you rely on the internet, mobile phones, or satellite technology, you must take steps to ensure all channels are operational no matter the circumstances. However, constantly monitoring and switching carriers to maintain connectivity is time-consuming and frustrating.
Cellular connections are in constant flux due to environmental conditions and customer demand. Other uncontrollable situations that can impair communications include:
Inclement weather (like wind, rain and snow) can interrupt steady connectivity. If your location is subject to severe storms and conditions, including hurricanes, tornadoes, floods or earthquakes, creating communication failovers is that much more critical.
Equipment often fails when you least expect it to. Relying on technology without a business continuity plan can take down your business for days.
First responders, enterprise businesses and field ops teams need reliable mobile internet connections to run their applications in the field. However, maintaining constant connectivity can be challenging if employees travel to rural, remote, or offshore locations due to a lack of available infrastructure.
No one wants to plan for worst-case scenarios. However, having a disaster recovery communication plan gives you peace of mind and helps mitigate loss when the unthinkable happens.
Debris, fallen trees, or trees that grow to become obstacles to satellite signals are obstructions that can obscure communication channels. Unfortunately, obstacles aren’t always immediately detected, creating coverage lapses that take time to locate and resolve.
While blended mobile connectivity solutions have many use cases, industries that benefit in particular include:
A blended mobile communications solution provides continuous, seamless coverage and reliability for satellite, cellular, wireless and FirstNet communications regardless of external conditions.
