The Mobile Business Continuity Solution

Mobile Communications Centers

Loading various vehicles with navigation, testing and computer equipment is not a new concept.  For years now, various expedition trucks have been custom built and fitted out with various testing and transmitting equipment for expeditions.  Vehicles such as the “Ice Broker”, a 170bhp Toyota Hilux 6×6 which was custom built and fitted out by Arctic Trucks in Iceland! The truck was kitted out as a communications center for the expedition across the Antarctic to the South Pole.  The truck was kitted out with two iridium pilot systems and remote camera built in to provide all the logistical support, live video streaming of the race and the transmitting of various data for scientific research to various facilities.

Mobile Business Continuity Solutions

Everyone is familiar with the kitted-out ice-cream truck that plays its jolly music, mobile library units that bring books to the neighborhoods, mobile food trucks and now there are even mobile clothing’s stores, various mobile medical and blood donation labs!

But technology has gone even further with mobile units and some company’s the likes of Cisco, SunGard, IBM and some other large corporates have fitted out large mobile units with wireless connections, servers to match their land-based units, phones and workspaces with client’s pc/laptops.  These Mobile disaster recovery units are all fully equipped and ready to serve the area that goes down within one to two hours of the disaster or depending on the proximity of the office to the mobile unit’s location and the nature of the disaster.

Whilst the idea of having a mobile unit at the ready, and in some cases, is can be, these trucks are not always the best solution.

They have a quite a few limitations in that they are not very cost effective, as the maintenance and staff required to operate and maintain them is quite costly.  If the mobile unit is near the disaster it is very unlikely that the staff are going to want to be anywhere near where the disaster happened.  If the even has been forecasted such as that of severe storm conditions, it is more than likely that the staff have evacuated to a safer location.  So, trying to predict where to have the mobile unit to get the most from its recourses is a job on its own.

As the outlay for these units is costly and most companies would hire the truck as and when needed there is still the issue of having to rebuild your servers and getting all the necessary data on to them.  This alone is time-consuming and can be costly to the organization in the downtime.


As a first responder in a disaster whereby there are no earthquake aftershocks or chemical spills, etc.  and the truck is quite safe at the office location a truck can be a valuable resource as a temporary first responder.  But the best solutions and most cost-effective for complete and robust business continuity and disaster recovery are the cloud-based solutions on offer these days.

A World Record was set by a 19-year-old Climate Change advocate

Blog2 840x410 - A World Record was set by a 19-year-old Climate Change advocate

The fastest walk to the South Pole in History

Nineteen-year-old Parker Liautaud led the fastest expedition to the South Pole ever.  He and his team beat the record of twenty-four days by six days!

That is not the only record he broke on his trek to the South Pole

Parker Liautaud with this team backed by the Willis Group broke the record for the fastest trip from the Antarctic shores to the South Pole.  Skiing across the three-hundred and forty-nine-mile trek pulling a sleigh with various items and equipment weighing eighty-two kilograms, in eighteen days.  Smashing the record held by the Norwegian Christian Eide by six whole days.

But Parker was not only the fastest person to reach the South Pole he now also holds the record for being the youngest man to do so!  Beaten only by a teenage girl of sixteen, Amelia Hempleman-Adams in 2011 who accompanied her father, adventurer David Hempleman-Adams on an expedition to the South Pole!

pak2 - A World Record was set by a 19-year-old Climate Change advocate

On his journey in one of the most extreme climates on earth, new lightweight weather stations had to be deployed that measure and then transmit essential climate data back to scientists.  The process of deployment and collection of snow samples that had to be done along the testing route could take anywhere from two to three hours and had to be done with extreme care.
One purpose of these weather stations is to study the rate of Tritium which is a radioactive isotope of Hydrogen is released across the Antarctic.


This expedition was a very valuable one with the data which was captured from it helping scientist to better understand the effects and causes of climate change.  As the expedition served three different scientific studies, mainly to better understand the worldwide water cycle!
The Willis Research Network, now one of the largest partnerships between the business sector and science sector has in recent years increased the awareness for companies who have now found that approximately eighty-three percent of businesses are starting to identify the need for some form of business resilience and risk policy.

Global Insurance Company funds Antarctic expedition

After the devastating effects of the natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and then the various vicious storms and heat waves that swept across the US in 2012 that racked up damage control to the excess of hundreds of billions of dollars, a global insurance company, the Willis Group, funded an Antarctic climate change research project and a world record attempt.

A young man with a passion and the heart of an explorer

The young man who advocated for the expedition was Parker Liautaud, a nineteen-year-old with a passionate advocate of climate change.  At the age of fifteen. he had his first expedition to the North Pole with the sole purpose of wanting to bring the world attention to the dire need for immediate action in addressing the effects of climate change.

Parker was an ambassador for the “One Young World” organization that brings like-minded young individuals together to better help them make strong valuable connections to drive positive changes throughout the globe.

pak - About Parker Liautaud

This organization has seen the likes of guest speakers such of Sir Bob Geldof and Kofi Anan of which Parker has had the pleasure of sharing an arena with and has addressed his fair share of selected individuals from over one-hundred and eighty countries around the world.

Together with some research scientists and backing of Willis Group and EMC his adventurous spirit and concern for the planet as affected by climate change-fueled his drive to get to the Antarctic.


In the wake of the disasters since 2012 / 2013 it comes as no great surprise that companies such as the Willis Group and brave concerned individuals such as Parker Liautaud still work tirelessly to get the world to wake up and not only do their bit to act, but also to better prepare themselves with some form of climate-resilience plan for the impact of the events that are likely to transpire from the effects of climate change on the planet.
