MOVABLE AND DEPLOYABLE ICT RESOURCE UNIT
The MDRU project was introduced to restore communications in disaster affected areas. This started in Japan after the 2011 Earthquake and Tsunami which left communities without ICT service for several weeks.
The Philippine MDRU project was launched in San Remigio, Cebu, Philippines in February 2015 to conduct a one year feasibility and development study.
Moveable deployable resource unit (MDRU) is an ICT unit solution that is responsible for communication processing, information processing and storage of data. The MDRU is deployed to the affected areas as information and communication nodes to help interconnect to a wide area network. The MDRU also functions as reconstructing flexible resource unit to the use the telephone, Internet and corporate networks. Accordingly, the MDRU can adapt flexibly to diverse data communication requirement in affected areas even with limited resources.
