Communication Solutions

The Communications Sector is an integral component of the U.S. economy, underlying the operations of all businesses, public safety organizations, and government. Presidential Policy Directive 21 identifies the Communications Sector as critical because it provides an “enabling function” across all critical infrastructure sectors. Over the last 25 years, the sector has evolved from predominantly a provider of voice services into a diverse, competitive, and interconnected industry using terrestrial, satellite, and wireless transmission systems. The transmission of these services has become interconnected; satellite, wireless, and wireline providers depend on each other to carry and terminate their traffic and companies routinely share facilities and technology to ensure interoperability.

The private sector, as owners and operators of the majority of communications infrastructure, is the primary entity responsible for protecting sector infrastructure and assets. Working with the federal government, the private sector is able to predict, anticipate, and respond to sector outages and understand how they might affect the ability of the national leadership to communicate during times of crisis, impact the operations of other sectors, and affect response and recovery efforts.

GEOS has been providing monitoring and response services to the Communications Sector, and their customers since 2007, in fact GEOS is the exclusive provider of these services to 100% of the Satellite Voice/Date Network Operators. No one compares to GEOS when it comes to providing services to address the terrestrial, satellite and wireless communications sector.

  • Global Employee Protection

    You can provide all of your employees regardless of location with a push-of-a-button safety application right on their smartphone, or tablet. In fact, GEOS Safety and Response also has support for a vast array of Satellite Emergency Notification Devices, or even Satellite phones. This allows your employees to: report an incident, request assistance, communicated securely with internal or external response resources. You can even integrate the GEOS solution into your existing security systems, such as CCTV surveillance and access controls.

  • Remote Worker Monitoring

    When your workers are in the field, servicing communications equipment, inspecting cellular towers, or working at a remote SCADA control room, you need to ensure they have a means to summons assistance, or report an incident. These incidents could be a breach of the physical security system, an accident, a terrorist act, or any number of critical incidents. The quicker these incidents are reported and the sooner information about them is collected the faster and more intelligent the response. GEOS offers a complete Lone Worker Program encompassing the latest in both cellular and satellite technology, complete with an enterprise portal that allows you to know the "health" of the organization or entire company in a single view.
