Ericsson Response Provides Services To Relief Workers In South Sudan

Ericsson Response is a group-wide employee initiative for ICT support in humanitarian disasters. In 2012, Ericsson Response worked with Emergency Telecommunications Cluster (ETC) partners – emergency.lu and the World Food Programme (WFP) – to provide vital communications services to relief workers in South Sudan. The combined ETC response solution from WFP, Ericsson Response and emergency.lu provides free, reliable, high-speed internet connectivity that allows the humanitarian community to perform its life-saving work in remote areas more efficiently.
