Keeping people safe and connected

With reliable and resilient mission critical communications

Secure connectivity for incidents and disasters

In Australia, it’s not a matter of ‘if’ but ‘when’ a natural disaster will disrupt mobile and terrestrial telecommunications networks. Connectivity can be quickly restored using Vocus rapid deployment infrastructure to provide essential voice and data services in times of crisis.

Real time, high speed data

Clear voice communication and real-time data are essential for emergency service crews to respond quickly to community needs. The latest generation of low earth orbit satellite technology, Vocus Satellite – Starlink, can create coverage there is none – or where a disaster has disrupted existing networks.

Supporting critical communications across Australia

Low earth orbit satellite technology can provide coverage across every part of the Australian land mass. Combined with a private 4G/5G network this can enable emergency services crews to communicate with each other over long distances and operation command centres. Low latency satellite connections allow real-time, high-speed audio and video streaming even in the most remote parts of Australia.

Vocus and NSW Telco Authority demonstrate Starlink-connected ‘mobile network in the sky’ for disaster relief connectivity

Emergency services organisations recently tested Vocus’ new ‘mobile network in the sky’ drone solution at a NSW Rural Fire Service base in Bimbimbie. Led by the NSW Telco Authority's Next Generation Digital Connectivity initiative, the demonstration showed how drones can provide critical communication services, especially when natural disasters disrupt standard mobile networks.
