When seconds count, you need connectivity you can rely on. That's where high-speed satellite connectivity plays a critical role. By including satellite Communications-on-the-Move (COTM) and Communications-on-the-Pause (COTP) solutions as an integral part of your existing network connectivity system, your crew and vehicles stay connected no matter wherever and whenever cellular and land mobile radio networks are interrupted or non-existent. This enables your teams in the field to facilitate situational awareness with secure, real-time data, voice, and video. With the right satellite connectivity solutions, you will be able to enhance field logistics and coordination through fleet visibility, as well as support streaming video for remote telemedicine and damage assessments.

In this session, we will discuss the connectivity challenges associated with mission critical communications in the field, as well as the various connected mobility and portable connectivity solutions that empower you and your teams to stay connected in any rapid deployment emergency response scenario.

Attendee Takeaways
 The critical role of high-speed satellite in mission critical communications.
 High-throughput satellite communications-on-the-move (COTM) solutions for response vehicles and mobile command centers, accessed through electronically steered antennas.
 High-throughput satellite communications-on-the-pause (COTP) for temporary fixed use, enabled by portable terminals that can be rapidly set up and easily configured.
