Participation in Large-scale Earthquake Medical Service Training as an LPWA Communications Operator

In earthquake-prone Tokyo, a major earthquake may strike directly underneath the city at any time. As part of training exercises to provide medical services in the event of such a major temblor, Ryoden assists in the provision of disaster-relief communications. Partnering with the Sky Perfect JSAT Group, a satellite communications and pay TV provider, Ryoden operates as a low-power, wide-area (LPWA) communications carrier, combining the satellite communications with a low-range, wide-area network to create a temporary network to support disaster relief. The system enables members of disaster medical assistance teams to conduct relief activities safely and reliably.
