Sustaining Telecommunications Capability and Capacity during Acute Phase of Disasters and Disaster Responses

    Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting Abstractpeer-review

    Abstract

    Telecommunications plays a critical enabling role in disaster response, both for the local population and for responses of external origin. However, it is common for telecommunications capacity to be reduced or disabled by the disaster or emergency. Meanwhile, the disaster stimulates demand for any remaining capacity, often resulting in total loss of telecommunications capability during the acute phase of a disaster and its response.
