WHY SATELLITE COMMUNICATIONS ARE AN ESSENTIAL TOOL FOR EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT DISASTER RECOVERY AGENDA - What is GVF - Typical Use Scenarios & Solution - Loral Skynet - Business Continuity Applications
What is the GVF? Global Satellite Industry Association Non-profit & Non-partisan Formed in 1998 by 25 Companies Today: 180 Companies in 60 Countries Serves as Industry’s Unified Voice Objective - Facilitate Satellite Services Thru: Regulatory & Policy Reform Heightened Awareness Technical Co-ordination
Disaster and Emergency Communications Satellites are Key - Reality: GEO and LEO Satellite could be use anywhere in the world - Next Step: Getting Equipped & Services Typical Use Scenarios LAN Switch Gateway or Hub Antenna Portable VSAT Terminal Transportable VSAT Terminal Mobile VSAT Terminal Fixed Terminal Handheld Terminal Video IP Voice IP PC LAN Satellite
Satellite Solutions 2 - Mobile & Portable Satellite Communications 3 - Fixed Satellite Communications 4 - Services available in the market place - Business Continuity - On Demand Services - Disaster Recovery 1 - Handheld Mobile Satellite Communications
Mar ‘06 8 What is driving Business Continuity Based on the various worldwide events that have occurred in the past four years, businesses have come to realize the importance of contingency planning as it relates to communication networks. Organizations heavily depend on key business applications such customer relationship management (CRM), manufacturing resource planning (MRPII), and supply chain management (SCM) to name a few. The importance of system and network availability has never been so critical to a company’s bottom line. Every year accidents, and disasters impacting networks, cost business millions of dollars. Businesses are looking at ways to minimize risk and exposure at a cost effective price.
Mar ‘06 9 Contingency Services: Terminology Business Continuity: Company's ability to keep critical business processes functioning despite temporary network disruptions or long-term outages. "Seamless, “Always On,” High Availability, Automatic IP traffic failover Downtime is measured less than 1 minute Disaster Recovery: Those actions necessary to respond and restore network connectivity and critical business functions following a catastrophic event due to natural or man-made activities. Downtime is measured in hours or days Business Continuity Disaster Recovery How long can your customer afford to be down?
Mar ‘06 10 Determine Level of Application Survivability Organizations need to determine what level of application survivability is required, and what kind of solution would best be suited to address the specific departmental and organizational need. The results of the analysis will be used to identify the feasibility of selecting topologies that include: Hot-standby backup network Fault tolerant network Combination of hot-standby backup and fault tolerant networks
Mar ‘06 11 Full Redundant Hot Standby Two isolated networks that will each carry 100% of the total network load if the primary route experiences an outage. Fully Redundant Backup Network
Mar ‘06 12 Critical Application Recovery A fault tolerant network topology carry part of the total network load at the same time. In event of outage the most critical applications will continue to run. Fault Tolerant Network (Partially Restored)
Mar ‘06 13 Why Satellite Lessons learned from 9/11 and Katrina were to increase secondary sites to 170 miles. Satellite offers maximum flexibility to support geographically distributed alternative locations within a broad satellite footprint or globally via the LS backbone. More dynamic Rapid deployment and readily available Low cost no additional assets (facilities, last mile, etc.), costs and depreciative value Highly scalable and flexible to meet your business growth requirements and not simply the current state Service levels Can support mobile recovery centers With Satellite connection can be established before employees reach alternative site “cold” or “warm” without the overhead of a “hot” site and within minutes not hours or days.
Mar ‘06 15 SkyReach Ensure Built product around real customer requirements Service Definition: Automatic IP traffic failover of customer network traffic to guaranteed bandwidth rate. Two offerings: Dedicated service Smaller fixed monthly with volume usage options Where/When deployed? * Denotes 7-Beam
Mar ‘06 16 SkyReach Ensure: Target Customer Profile SkyReach Ensure – Dedicated Offering: Customers having many sites in a very small geographical area (e.g. Orlando City Corporation) Customers who wish to define their own sizing assumptions and manage their own risk Customer who wish to leverage the network for more than just the Business Continuity (i.e. multicast, network maintenance/ testing, demo/promotional events, etc.) SkyReach - Volume Usage Offering: Customers with a small number of sites dispersed over a larger geographical area Customers who rarely expect an outage, but want access when needed.
Mar ‘06 18 Disaster Recovery: SkyReach Saver Name: “SkyReach SAVER” (Satellite on VSAT for Emergency Recovery) Service Definition: Fast response & restoration service with remote sites sized and CPE procured per current standard procedures. CPE is pre-positioned, may even be installed, but NOT commissioned. “Cold Backup” A “smart” CPE package is available with auto-acquisition to reduce set up time, errors, or delays awaiting a GO at a time of crisis Differs from BC: Reactive following a catastrophic outage. Customer site is activated upon request by Customer to NOC. Recovery time is in hours not seconds. Lower monthly reservation fee ($100/site) and weekly usage rates Where/When deployed? Hosted with SkyReach Ensure on Skynet’s Contingency Network based supporting Americas on IA7 by 6/27.
