WIT Emergency Response Vehicle (WERV)
WIT through Fujisan is also introducing the country’s first fully outsourced and managed emergency response and communication vehicle called WIT’s Emergency Response Vehicles (WERV). This vehicle fills in the need for communication in times of natural disasters and emergencies. It uses solar panels and diesel fuel for power and can be connected to share power from the grid.
With all the strong typhoons hitting the country, WERV can be fully functional within 15 minutes of arrival in the affected area. Even when cell sites are down, WERV can easily provide communication and dispatch information. It carries cutting edge broadband satellite communications, Ultra range Wi-Fi service, HD CCTV, Very High Frequency (VHF) and Ultra High Frequency (UHF) radios, Video conferencing, Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) broadcast, Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP), Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) and broadcast HD quality video for Satellite News Gathering. The WERV runs on an Internet Protocol (IP) for wider interoperability.
Emergency situations in businesses and government offices also call for the need of a prompt communication platform. Through WERV, businesses can send out information to customers and government officials can notify the people of what’s going on in the community.
