Emergency Preparedness

Keep Mission-critical Applications Online



If you rely solely on single pipe network connectivity to your agency locations, your agency sites are at risk for being knocked offline. No phones. No Internet. No way to get back up and running to serve the public. Disasters across the globe—from earthquakes, to hurricanes, to terrorist attacks—serve as reminders of physical network vulnerabilities.

Stay Connected Even in an Emergency

When disaster strikes, you can rely on Hughes Emergency Response Solutions—powered by advanced broadband satellite technology—to get your mission-critical applications back online in fractions of a second! Satellite connectivity is the critical infrastructure component necessary to maintain government network operations when an emergency strikes. It provides true networking path diversity, and hence provides the highest network availability, achieved by integrating alternate technologies and independent physical routing.

Prepare for Fast Response and Recovery

If your agency works in coordination of emergency response and recovery efforts, Hughes enables you to plan ahead—before an emergency occurs—so you can be poised to quickly mobilize and manage your efforts. Hughes also provides vehicle-mount terminals and flyaway kits that set up easily with a mobile, self-pointing antenna system for instant, high-speed broadband satellite connectivity—even in the most remote locations.
