Justin Waller, Instant Network Technical Manager
I work for the Vodafone Foundation’s Instant Network Programme. We deliver telecommunications to support humanitarian response after natural disasters and provide mobile-based education systems for schools in refugee camps. I am responsible for all technical aspects of the programme, including designing and making products such as the Instant Network Mini, a portable mobile network for disasters. I lead Vodafone volunteers on missions that over the past two years have deployed to countries including the Philippines, South Sudan, Kenya, and Madagascar.
Prior to my role at Vodafone, I worked as a technical consultant for the GSMA Disaster Response Programme and for Telecoms sans Frontieres providing post-disaster communications and managing telecoms development projects in Asia. I am currently based in Bangkok, Thailand.
