Establishing high-speed data communications at the scene of a disaster is essential for first responders in today’s cloud-centric world to access everything from basic services to videoconferencing. This panel will discuss options for satellite broadband connectivity for the first responder, looking at mobile options ranging from man-portable terminals through truck-mounted dishes.

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to use a satellite dish these days, but some training and a checkbook are required. Attendees will learn what services are available, how they can be procured, and the equipment and skills necessary to access them.
