The ASEAN launch of ResQMobil, VNL's portable emergency mobile communication

The ASEAN Launch of ResQMobil.

The ASEAN launch of ResQMobil, VNL's portable emergency mobile communication, search and rescue system took place at the India ASEAN ICT Expo 2017 in Jakarta on 6th Dec 2017.

As public communication networks are the first casualty in most disasters, first-responders and public safety agencies need a dedicated communication system to be set up at disaster sites within hours, to minimize impact. VNL's ResQMobil is an integrated solution that aids emergency response at affected sites by providing Voice, Video & Data connectivity with built-in VSAT connectivity almost instantly.

ResQMobil not only provides an instant communication network but can also help locate victims through mobile signals, and interface with different radio networks to provide actionable information to authorities. It is designed to work during all types of disasters and can be airdropped to sites immediately.

ResQMobil packs the following into a trailer:

  1. GSM Network-in -a- box with integrated BTS, BSC, MSC, SMSC etc. for establishing an independent communication network, instantly.
  2. Emergency Victim Locator to help locate people, who may be trapped, buried or missing, by locating mobile phones.
  3. Universal Gateway for patching communication over various platforms, e.g., HF, VHF, UHF to mobile or PSTN networks.
  4. Temporary Cellular Network for connectivity to the outside world with available backhaul, enabled through arrangements with operators. In this context, VNL has partnered with BSNL, the state-owned operator in India, to provide disaster relief services in India, and other countries.

ResQMobil is targeted at disaster management agencies across the world and is now accessible to countries in the ASEAN region.

Speaking at the launch, VNL's Founder Chairman Mr. Rajiv Mehrotra said, "Considering the recent spate of natural disasters that have hit the world, we are committed to assisting first responders and public safety agencies in restoring connectivity and minimizing the impact of disasters with our ResQMobil solution. We're proud to be associated with BSNL, our partner, to offer the Relief 123 service."

Offered in association with BSNL, India’s state-owned operator, Relief 123 provides disaster relief as a service, using ResQMobil equipment. Available on request, it includes setup and operation, and comes with trained manpower and backhaul arrangements. The service, hitherto being offered only in India and SAARC countries, is now being extended to the ASEAN region.

Spurred by indigenous design and manufacturing, VNL is constantly innovating and offers, in addition to disaster relief, last mile connectivity solutions catering to rural and remote geographies and enterprises.

VNL’s award winning mobile and broadband solutions have been deployed in some of the toughest rural terrains in the world including extremism affected regions in India impacting over 22,000 villages. Other success stories include digitization of 33 remote villages in Indonesia, 20 villages in Bhutan, 40 villages in Peru and numerous villages in Mexico and African countries.

VNL's enterprise connectivity solution is designed to meet the communication needs of both urban and remote enterprises in the form of a privateGSM network that integrates with existing PBX networks, effectively ‘mobilising’ them. Industrial setups like mines and plantations across the ASEAN region stand to gain a lot with this cost-effective, unified communication platform.


Apart from developing rapidly deployable networks for disaster and emergency situations, India-based VNL designs and manufacturesmobile and broadband solutions for rural and remote locations. It also makes secure communication platforms for urban and remote enterprises and homeland security. VNL's pioneering work has been widely praised and has won several accolades over the years.
