The Relief 123 service is an integrated disaster response service for first responders and aid agencies. The solution is designed and manufactured by VNL with the backhaul connectivity and other services provided by BSNL. An MoU to the same effect was signed recently between the two companies at the India Mobile Congress 2017, New Delhi.
The Relief 123 service can be requested in the face of natural and man-made disasters such as earthquakes, landslides, storms, building fires, floods and tsunamis. It can restore connectivity at disaster sites, help locate the affected and integrate information across platforms to enable informed decision-making for quick relief.
The Relief 123 service is a comprehensive solution for state governments and disaster management agencies allowing them the flexibility of leased and pay per-use models.
This service is already available in India and can be extended to SAARC countries and the rest of the world.
