Saving Lives in Treacherous Conditions

The 3400 workers of the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities make sure that goods and services travel safely across the wilderness.

Challenge

  • Implement telephone, radio, and Internet communication capabilities along one of the harshest stretches of highway in the United States
  • Achieve absolute reliability in spite of extreme conditions
  • Improve safety for staff and the public traveling the Dalton and Elliott Highways

Solution

Outcome

  • Fast response to emergency situations with appropriate equipment
  • Expandability to broaden reach and improve safety and responsiveness
  • Significantly more efficient equipment management and maintenance

We could quickly dispatch vital equipment and people and communicate no matter where I was. The impact of this system has been amazing.
