Dispatch Reliable Communications for Emergency Preparation & Response
Make sure first responders and communities have the emergency communications systems they need, when they need them, with satellite.
When disaster strikes, two-way communications are critical for executing an emergency plan, yet terrestrial lines and cell towers are vulnerable to storms, floods, accidents and fires. Satellite, by contrast, offers reliable connectivity, unobstructed and unhindered by events on Earth. Virtually unparalleled in disaster scenarios, satellite delivers real-time connectivity for first responders and communities so you can send and support front-line help fast and without interruption.
When you need it most, our emergency solutions for disaster preparation and response provide uninterrupted communication -- whether for first response, medical support, public safety, recovery efforts, essential supplies or perhaps the most important reason of all: so victims can notify family and friends about their whereabouts and wellbeing.
Versatile Satellite Terminals
For fast connectivity in times of emergency, Hughes offers a range of satellite terminals that are small enough and rugged enough for the harshest disaster zones. Equipment can be pre-ordered and pre-staged ahead of severe weather for the fastest connections or ordered as needed for longer deployments. Find out more about our BGAN Mobile Satellite Terminals, our industry-leading JUPITER™ System and our HM System with low Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) for military applications.
Resilient Backup Networks
For organizations of every size, a backup network plan is as essential as a business plan. We offer a variety of network redundancy options to ensure secondary and tertiary back-up across single- and multi-transport broadband and SD-WAN deployments. Consider high-throughput Geostationary or Low Earth Orbit (LEO) broadband to back up your enterprise network connectivity at every site. HughesNet Internet Continuity keeps small business sites up when cable and fiber internet go down.
