Base-Camp-Connect connects different and existing voice and data communication networks. Cross-system and interoperable communication become possible. The BCC communication solution is designed to create a decentralized and resilient communication infrastructure.
If one of the mobile and portable BCC BASE CAMP CONNECT Kommunication units fails, for example in a disaster situation, communication with all other units in the coalition can continue. BASE CAMP CONNECT communication solutions are designed to allow resilient communication between different parties with different communication devices at any time.
The interoperable BASE CAMP CONNECT communication solutions enable communication between different brands of radios as well as between mobile phones and radios and much more. Ideal for example for civil and military units and organizations to work together in times of crisis. This also works with encrypted and data communication.
BASE CAMP CONNECT eliminates the need for a comprehensive communications solution at headquarters. Many small mobile and agile communication solutions replace the one large solution, increasing the reliability and stability of communications. At the same time, the vulnerability to sabotage or catastrophic events is reduced.
BASE CAMP CONNECT is a communication solution designed to provide continuity in your mission. Communication must be maintained. No matter if there was an attack, a military crisis, or a disaster. BASE CAMP CONNECT are also easy to use solutions and do not require extensive training.
Resilient, decentralized, and interoperable networks are required wherever different authorities and organizations cooperate and communicate. This includes
The BASE CAMP CONNECT communication hubs enable public safety authorities to maintain a stable communication network even in times of crisis. Different authorities can communicate together across regions. This even between civilian and military units and across different equipment standards. BASE CAMP CONNECT provides a reliable emergency communications system when resilience and mission continuity are critical.
BASE CAMP CONNECT provides you with interoperable systems that allow coalition partners to focus on the mission and not on their various communication devices. You do not have to share encryption keys with your partners. Communications are secured within the system. These communication systems, which enable a resilient and decentralized communication infrastructure, are already in use in various NATO units.
Mobile rescue teams around the world depend on mobile, portable, and stable communications. They communicate with rescue teams from around the world and across agencies and organizations. BASE CAMP CONNECT provides exactly this interoperable communication solution that rescue units need especially for domestic operations (DOMOPS) and international rescue operations with different international partners.
BASE CAMP CONNECT is not only suitable for authorities to maintain communication. In times of crisis or disaster, the industry also wants to maintain communication with, for example, production or the CEO. BASE CAMP CONNECT offers you exactly this possibility in terms of business continuity. Such a case should be part of your civil crisis plan.
BASE-CAMP-CONNECT communication solutions work with both data communication and voice communication. BASE-CAMP-CONNECT connects various radio, telephony, and IT networks of different technologies and standards and thus enables the communication between these networks
BASE-CAMP-CONNECT communication solutions are simple, clear, and reliable. The BCC systems require minimal training for installation, connection, and operation compared to similar systems. BASE-CAMP-CONNECT systems can be up and running in minutes, which is critical for rapid deployments.
BASE-CAMP-CONNECT communication solutions are designed for the greatest possible interoperability between different systems. For example, up to 5 different radio systems can be interconnected in both unencrypted and encrypted modes. All can communicate with each other without the need to manage keys.
The communication solutions from BASE-CAMP-CONNECT are compact. From the transport case to the portable 2-man system, they are designed to fit easily into the trucks and trailers of emergency services and, if required, also into the trunk or on the passenger seat of a car, from where they can also be operated on the move
Different teams work with different devices or with different standards. But they all need to communicate with each other via the same communication hub. The BASE-CAMP-CONNECT communication solutions are designed to easily integrate almost all devices used by search and rescue teams, authorities, the military, or the industry.
The BASE-CAMP-CONNECT portable command centers are a valuable aid, especially in international and transnational cooperation and communication, and enable local, regional, national and international and jointly coordinated operations to be supported with an appropriate communication solution if required.
In current conflict scenarios, aggressors today rely on a combination of the familiar classic military operations and military tactics. Increasingly, however, civilian achievements are also being used for warfare. These include not only computers but also general economic pressure and communication elements such as propaganda and false reports in the media and social networks. One of the strategies for responding to this in a timely and appropriate manner is the analysis, reconciliation, and aggregation of data from available sources. This requires their distribution to the decision-makers and correspondingly to the emergency forces, which makes a functioning, stable, and secure communication infrastructure indispensable. This requires a high degree of interoperability between communication systems and a resilient communication structure as well as a corresponding command and control structure.
Current and recent conflicts show that one-dimensional but established communication infrastructures quickly reach their limits. Networking in the communication infrastructure can provide strong support here in a relatively simple way. Actually, it starts with a change in our way of thinking. When everything is centralized, everything is under control, but it is also vulnerable across the board. In the future, leading operations from distributed locations and by means of distributed, decentralized communication infrastructure will become more and more important in order to remain capable of leading and communicating in the event of a loss of a leadership or communication element. And to remain capable of communication.
This means that the ability to network actors and platforms in a “hostile” environment to provide data and communications, and to provide a failure-resistant, secure, flexible, and resilient communications, and information infrastructure, will become an essential and indispensable key requirement in the future.
The good: Functioning communication infrastructures that can operate reliably and safely in emergency and crisis situations are planned. They do not happen by chance. Success does not necessarily lie in the technical dimension, but much more in our thinking and actions. But what is meant by this? Communications infrastructures, like many other things, were often centrally designed. This was also accompanied by the fact that these infrastructures were a worthwhile target. Take, for example, data centers, large train stations or airports, or entire governments that govern from their capitals. A good comparison is also the centralized production of electricity in large power plants, or a little further away from the production of food in monocultures.
Efficient, but in case of catastrophes very vulnerable because the central hub paralyzes everything when it no longer works. Accordingly, the future must be decentralized. And indeed, we are slowly moving there. Small air cab stations are just as much a part of this as the home office or even electricity production on the roof at home.
The same is true for communications. Especially for the communication networks that are used in public safety. Here, too, a redundant, decentralized, and resilient communication network offers the security of always being able to communicate. And if it is inoperable, it can do so between different standards and across different units. Police radio with the fire department and ambulance, Motorola radio with Sepura and Kennwood, and the mayor and the hospital are connected via mobile radio or landline phone.
Sound good? Yes, and it’s not even expensive, at least not compared to the threat of damage from lack of communication. Nevertheless, the financing of such infrastructure adaptations is partly cyclical and people focus on the prevailing disaster and look for short-term opportune solutions. In other words, if you want to be safe, you have to make the investment before the disaster.
Here’s a scenario: You are an international corporation with production sites all over the world. Although this reduces the overall risk of a complete outage, system-relevant production sites can still be affected by disasters. It is quite possible that important parts of the company are cut off from communication for days.
A satellite phone for top management can help, but it does not replace the need to communicate with all management. Equipping your top management with an appropriately mobile and resilient communication solution that makes it easy to maintain communication between all stakeholders in such cases is possible and represents a simple and cost-effective investment. At least compared to the cost of not having such a system in place. This is true for data communication as well as for voice communication.
Today, communication is everywhere and constant in the industrial sector. There is hardly a second of business life that is not permeated by communication. In order to ensure this increasingly important communication, we need correspondingly powerful, growth-capable, decentralized, and mobile infrastructures. The failure of such communication infrastructures can, as we have just experienced, either be merely inconvenient, as everyone knows whose WLAN or LAN has ever failed in an operation, or it can cause serious and threatening problems if critical infrastructures are affected.
Water, electricity, food, and public transport are everyday things for us, but they are essential for life. The supply of these and other indispensable goods and services is handled worldwide by so-called critical infrastructures. These include, for example, energy and water supply, transportation, and also medical care. It affects, even more, the important communication between authorities and the organizations that provide the infrastructure or industries that use it.
The importance of critical infrastructures is usually only recognized when disruptions occur. Communication is one of the foundations for the functioning of our society. Ensuring the protection of critical infrastructures, such as the communications infrastructure, is, therefore, an important task of government and corporate security provision.
Among the events that should increasingly be kept in mind today are catastrophic events based not least on global warming. Increasingly, communications, transportation, and important other infrastructures can be affected. As we know from the recent past, wars are again one of the factors in the immediate vicinity that threaten modern infrastructures, as well as cyber-attacks that have the potential to disrupt and permanently disrupt these infrastructures.
But are there solutions to maintain communicative structures, or at least to temporarily replace them for the commanders and emergency forces? Even if these structures are being impaired right now by such dangers? The answer to this question is clearly yes. But one thing is for sure: As comfortable as we would like it to be today, regarding the operation of simply everything with our cell phones, is no longer possible in such a case.
But what can you do
Essentially, there are 4 points that you can check or work through in order to have functioning, comprehensive, and stable communication channels in crisis situations in the future
1) Carry out a self-assessment of your communications
2) Start the test of a crisis scenario with a focus on communication
3) Define the necessary improvements in your communication infrastructure
4) Create resilient case-back solutions to bridge crisis situations
The importance of reliable and equally redundant communications and the use of different channels and technologies that work even in disaster situations has been well demonstrated by the disasters of recent years. Diversity is definitely helpful in terms of stability. The magic word here is interoperability. In other words, the overarching and summarizing combination of different communication infrastructures into a structure in which one can communicate across the board, and which can be easily installed in the event of a crisis.
To the point, we would have an idea for a product, which has the potential to support your communication infrastructure in times of crisis massively. Base Camp Connect combines infrastructures into a communication system
Connect your PMR radio system with IoT-enabled components and transmit not only data but also control commands for important infrastructure via radio.
