Satellite communication for authorities and organizations with security tasks (BOS)




Why is emergency communication so important for authorities and organizations with security tasks?

Experience shows that common communication networks such as landlines, mobile phones or the Internet are overloaded in the event of a crisis or are no longer available after a few hours or minutes.

The permanent availability of voice and data communication determines how quickly emergency services reach a location. Satellite-based solutions enable instant communication anywhere. This gives emergency services the opportunity to transmit important information to and from the scene in real time.


Goal: Ensuring communication for authorities and organizations with security tasks (BOS)
Task:Preventing communication failures
Requirements:Crisis-proof and independent emergency communication

What happens if common communication networks fail?

In emergencies such as long-term blackouts, voice communication or data transmission is no longer possible after a short time in many areas of the public landline network, as both relay stations and end devices are no longer supplied with the necessary operating voltage. After a few hours, internal landlines powered by UPS also fail.

Furthermore, in the event of such a power outage, mobile radio base stations can no longer maintain communication in the corresponding radio cells if they do not have a suitable long-term mains power supply.

Another problem is the heavy network load on mobile networks due to increased usage such as on New Year's Eve, major events such as football world championships, disasters, etc. The lack of prioritization of SIM cards for emergency services in the mobile network also makes this medium an unreliable tool in an emergency.

Without the availability of voice and data communication, emergency services cannot communicate with the operations control center or with each other. This means that the operation cannot be planned in a timely manner and the emergency services can only be inadequately coordinated.

Problems with public communication networks can occur with:

  • In the event of a failure or attack (IT-related dangers) on your own, shared official or commercial communication networks (landline, mobile phone, Internet)
  • Crisis situations
  • Immediate situations in the event of sudden natural disasters or major damage events
  • Large locations in infrastructurally weak and underserved areas
  • Events and demonstrations
  • Widespread power outages (blackouts/black cases)

Special features of satellite communication

  • Ready for immediate use
  • Reliable communication option even when no terrestrial networks are available
  • Reliable availability in the event of widespread, extended power outages
  • Power supply option from integrated battery or from 110 V – 240 V and from 12 V/24 V car battery
  • Possibility of permanent installation in vehicles or buildings using a removable antenna with HF or system cable connection
  • Possibility of mobile use
  • Robust case solutions available
  • Communication types: voice, fax, data, SMS
  • Possibility of connecting to an existing telecommunications system
  • Conference capability (via secure PBX)
  • Data communication option
  • Connection of the terminal devices of the same satellite system without terrestrial line connections


The variety of telephones and terminals available today meets every requirement for a modern communication unit - whether mobile or stationary.

The extensive equipment of the current devices offers numerous application options at the highest level of security.

The telephones and terminals are available in different sizes and functions and can be optionally configured.

The devices are generally very robust as they were designed for use under extreme conditions by military organizations, media and aid organizations.

Most devices are dust and splash-proof, and some even have protection class IP-67.
