IPSTAR in Action in Tacloban Immediately a Day After Typhoon Haiyan (a.k.a. Typhoon Yolanda) Devastated the Area

Below are two of the pictures showing IPSTAR connectivity solution provided to the DSWD and PTV 4 response teams providing IP based communications link between the response team in Tacloban and their HQ in Metro Manila via Skype, Viber,e-mail and etc.

A day before the calamity happens, a team from DSWD arranged meeting with IPSTAR team and AZComm - one of the IPSTAR's service providers partners in the Philippines.

There in the meeting, everything, such as purchase of VSAT equipment, satellite and Internet bandwidths reservation, logistics and manpower was arranged.

As expected, all telcos' telecommunication networks infrastructures were totally devastated and none of them could provide help for the communications in the affected area for several weeks.

So, it's the IPSTAR connectivity solution that saved the very difficult situation in Tacloban since the first day until several weeks later after the devastating typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) hit the area.

It provided Internet service to the victim and the DSWD staffs, volunteers and emergency response teams from different organizations.

Few days later, other emergency response team from Broadcast Network like PTV 4, had also utilized IPSTAR connectivity service.
