Beyond these characteristics, OptiLINK has an excellent availability rate with optimized maintenance and operating costs.
Mr. Nabil Ben Soussia, Managing Director of IEC Telecom UAE, commented: “When dealing with a crisis, humanitarian organizations usually face a breakdown of conventional communications networks which can severely restrict fast and effective delivery of aid into the field. This essential connectivity allows frontline staff rapidly and efficiently co-ordinate first response to disasters or emergency situations. With our telecommunications systems, aid agencies can consolidate their relief efforts over time, set up temporary offices using semi-fixed modems such as Yahsat’s YahClick range of satellite broadband solutions, Thuraya IP+ and access corporate applications, manage logistics or even use low bandwidth videoconferencing solutions.”
In his remarks, Mr. Nabil Ben Soussia highlighted IEC Telecom’s International experience in accompanying & supporting UN and NGO humanitarian missions remains a longterm focus of the organization’s future expansion plans and strategic goals. By exhibiting for the 8th time in DIHAD exhibition IEC Telecom will contribute to new trends in operational support and logistics, and is strengthening its position amongst the community ofglobal players supporting vulnerable communities worldwide.
Najwa Ayoub, Market Development Manager, NGO Relief of Thuraya, commented: “Thuraya is committed to educating and working with frontline emergency response and medical teams as well as governments and NGOs to deliver reliable, portable and secure solutions in the event of any disaster. Mobile satellite communications is the backbone of successful relief operations. In times of crisis and emergency, access to telecommunication services is vital if a community is to get the support it needs, but terrestrial networks simply cannot cope during times of disaster. We’ve seen it time and again during major disasters where our ruggedized satellite phones and data terminals enabled access to vital information, helping affected communities stay connected with the rest of the world.”
