Working with Premium Partner Assmann Technologies, Hughes demonstrated the auto-deploy VSAT solution from vans both on the stand and outside the exhibition hall. "The response was impressive," confirms Chris O'Dell, vice president of sales and marketing, Hughes Europe. "Numerous senior representatives of police forces, security and other emergency services across Europe witnessed the demonstration and we are already developing several important projects."       

The Hughes solution directly addresses the problems of low reliability/availability and inconsistent coverage utilizing wireless networks, which constrains these agencies in undertaking investigation, protection, surveillance and disaster recovery activities.

"Our auto-deploy satellite solution provides a true alternative path and high-availability back-up to terrestrial networks, which are vulnerable to natural disasters," O'Dell said. "It offers the advantages of quick implementation, high security and comprehensive coverage, supported by a high Quality of Service."

The mobile VSAT solution also includes Assmann Technologies' encrypted telephony to provide effective localization, which enables security authorities to determine precisely where targets or suspects are, while keeping their own location secret and secure.      

"This powerful combination represents a major step forward for the emergency and security services looking to maintain the highest levels of protection for the public," said O'Dell.
