Satellites for Business Resumption and Redundant Emergency Communications
It is the last resort. Nothing else works.
In the event of a major disaster, such as a catastrophic earth quake or a category 3 + hurricane, normal terrestrial communications, such as regular telephone and internet will probably not be working (this is the assumption that we prepare for). Even cellular systems and radio have similar vulnerabilities. Cellular, even though “wireless”, is not satellite based, and has antennas and towers that can be adversely effected by these catastrophic terrestrial conditions.
It is in these times when all else fails, that satellite telephones ("satphones") will work as their terrestrial components are usually very far away from the region of the disaster.
Satphones and Satellite Data Modems can be an extremely effective communication tool to communicate and mitigate information during the first most important hours, days, or even weeks after a disaster strikes.
They are relatively low cost, small and light weight and have built in battery power. Although they usually have a small monthly subscription fee, usage cost are on demand (pay only what you use), which enables very low fixed initial buy in costs with immediate availability when deployed.
Satphones are the most important and widely used communication tool in the world for emergency planning and implementation.
