Emergency Satellite  Backup Communications for Hospitals and Critical Infrastructure Organizations During emergencies critical infrastructure organizations such as hospitals, emergency response organizations, and power generation facilities must maintain communication capability. Unfortunately, regional emergencies such as hurricanes, earthquakes, or man-made emergencies can disable the conventional communications upon which these organizations depend. Outfitter Satellite has provided a brief review of several typical satellite backup solutions including hardware and operational costs.

Both Iridium and Inmarsat systems designed for in-building applications are shown below. These solutions divide into several categories:

  • Handheld satellite phones facilitate communications with mobile field workers.
  • Vehicular docking stations allow field workers to retain use of their handheld satellite phones even while travelling.
  • In-building Docking Stations allow a handheld satellite phone to be used as the primary backup voice communication system for a facility while retaining the flexibility to evacuate that facility with the handheld satellite phone if necessary. Long throw antenna cables are available for applications where the in-building command center is far from the roof where external antennas are usually mounted. Some docking stations have an RJ-11 interface to facilitate integration with conventional phone equipment.
  • Fixed-site rack-mountable systems such as the BEAM RST-100 Iridium terminal or BEAM Terra 400 Inmarsat terminal provide a single voice line that can be integrated into existing PABX systems. Iridium also supports conventional G3 fax equipment (special adapter required).
  • The Iridium Pilot is a 3-voice line system that has a lower per line hardware and operational cost. If desired, the three lines can be configured into a hunt group, and a U.S. phone number can be assigned to the lead phone number in this hunt group. This can be useful for large command centers where multiple voice lines are necessary.
  • Inmarsat BGAN provides both voice and broadband internet in a small portable terminal. Some Inmarsat BGAN terminals support ISDN services. Externally mountable antennas are available for in-building applications, but Inmarsat BGAN terminals may also be transported for personal use.
  • Video conferencing software for Windows computers operating over BGAN is available.
