Disaster Response


The Philippines lies in the center of the Pacific’s Ring of Fire, an area of the world where earthquakes, volcanic activities, tsunamis, floods and super typhoons with significant intensity are frequent. When the most basic of terrestrial communications are down and urgent response is needed to facilitate emergency communications, WIT’s business continuity solution is key to first responders needs.


WIT’s DR solution is designed to meet the precise needs of first responders. Proven over and over again, our satellite solution is indispensible in times of crises. 48 hours after the landfall of super typhoon Haiyan in Tacloban City, WIT’s emergency response teams have facilitated the restoration of mobile network through the provisioning of a satellite mobile backhaul. WIT is the GO TO entity in times crises. Such is true for NGO’s during the Bohol earthquake and other disasters.
