Shared basic internet connectivity distributed from a single location (internet cafe). Access to corporate webmail only. Using portable high-speed data satellite terminals or though local broadband links if available.
Shared internet connectivity (VSAT, terrestrial, ISP) distributed in an internet cafe as well as wider coverage within a common office area. Depending on available bandwidth, some services might be restricted.The WIDER solution is used as the local area network, and provides network administration serving as a distribution point for internet access. It is used for user authentication (registration) and account management (security), usage data and statistics collection (user and network performance), and alarms and fault management (network status). It uses access points (APs) to distribute the network connectivity to the camp/office environment. The coverage area depends on the placement and number of AP’s connected. Typically an AP has a coverage area of a 100m radius. Several APs can cover a larger area, including an office or camp environment. As well some VLANs are designated for different organizations to ease connectivity to their respective internal network.
Shared internet connectivity distributed to the offices of the individual organizations within the operational area. Hardware as per agreed/published standards, might need to be cost recovered.
If requested by an organization; provide dedicated internet bandwidth on cost recovery basis.(i.e. VPN, leased-lines, dedicated VSAT capacity to corporate facilities)
- Emergency declared and ETC activated.
- Assessment confirmed no reliable data connectivity is available or services required in a new location where there is no reliable data connectivity.
On request of individual organization(s)
Reliable data connectivity is established/re-established or emergency project completed and services are decommissioned or hand-over arrangements established (MOU)
Within 24 hours
Initially within 4-7 days and coverage progressively expanded
1-4 weeks after request (pre-requisite: service D1.3 is operational)
Local topology may prevent linking in some situation
Organizations need to provide end-user devices and handle support of ICT equipment and applications for individual organization staff. (PCs, laptop, printers and applications including anti-virus software)
D1.1, D1.2, D1.3
PC/Laptop Wi-Fi enabled.
Specifications for inter-building connectivity and Inter-Agency configuration at central site will be needed, but depends on many factors, so will need to be determined on a case by case basis. Typically this requires wireless inter-building link and central Inter-Agency configuration that support dedicated bandwidth.
No cost of service during project.
Full cost recovery. Cost for the infrastructure and connectivity might need to be cost recovered, and wil be determined on case by case basis and on a pre-agreed arrangement.
Done in a number of emergencies based on cost share agreement. Often local ISP and/or VSAT. NetHope uses this concept for service provision.
