What frequency is best to use in humanitarian operations?
Because of the nature of the locations of most humanitarian operations, VHF is generally best.
I need Internet access via satellite - what are my options?
You have several options and it depends on your budget and the traffic you will be sending over it. BGAN and VSAT are the most obvious ones, but best to give us a call on 07768 501775 to discuss it in more depth.
What about satellite telephones?
Your choice will depend very much on your location. Although Iridium gives full global coverage, so if in doubt this is always a good option. Call us on 01454 610050 to discuss the various hardware options and airtime plans.
Can you help plan for my communications needs?
Absolutely. We’ve been working in rapid onset emergencies with NGO’s and Government agencies since the early 1990’s including Somalia, Bosnoa, Kosovo, S. Sudan, Sierra Leone and Rwanda to name just a few.
Humanitarian agencies operate in some of the most challenging and distressing circumstances imaginable. In almost all cases, the local infrastructure is either sub-standard or non-existent. This includes basic services such as food, water, transportation, roads and communications.
Humanitarian workers rely almost exclusively on radio and satellite systems for their operational control and for reach back communication to their home offices and external agencies.
As such, it is vital that the correct equipment is selected, suitable to operate in the specific environment in which they are working, and physically fir for task.
For 15 years G6 has been working with international relief organisations, United Nations and Government agencies to provide solutions for humanitarian operations to rapid onset emergencies in both post-conflict and post-disaster.
