Verizon enhances telecoms continuity solution

As the US storm season begins, Verizon has announced a new addition to its Mobile Satellite Solutions telecoms continuity service.

The Mobile Satellite Solutions suite was launched in August 2011; and has now been enhanced with an environmentally controlled inflatable shelter that joins other service equipment such as auto deploy kits, communications trailers and an executive coach vehicle.

The new 20-by-20-foot air shelters provide a complete communications solution incorporating Verizon satellite, wireless and IP data networks. With a rapid setup of less than 20 minutes, the air shelter has ample workspace with solid doors, a floor, windows and integrated LED lighting to provide a safe, comfortable work area for up to 12 adults, while protecting them from severe weather conditions.

Part of Verizon’s Private IP service suite, Mobile Satellite Solutions includes 24/7 remote monitoring of the equipment and an on-site technician to provide reliable communication services where traditional terrestrial services are unavailable, unreliable or expensive.

Using an MPLS switching-based virtual private network, Mobile Satellite Solutions offers the scalability and any-to-any connectivity of IP communications while providing a high level of security. With quick and easy implementation, Verizon can deliver these mobile satellite solutions virtually anywhere in the continental US within 24 to 36 hours, depending on the specific configuration. The solutions provide the bandwidth, high availability, performance and quality of service required to meet today’s complex business needs.
