AT&T has just unveiled a portfolio of Remote Mobility Zone solutions that will allow corporate and government customers to provide their own wireless coverage in remote or disaster-struck areas.
> The "Fly-away" solution packs a small cell site into a suitcase, offering first responders an easy-to-use, transportable system that can bring voice and data coverage to an area where disaster has knocked out communication channels. These small cell sites can extend connectivity up to one half of a mile in any direction from the suitcase site. Created for use by police officers, firefighters and other emergency responders, the Fly-away AT&T Remote Mobility Zone option is currently available to government agencies and personnel.
> Fixed site deployment establishes a mounted cell site for use as a backup communications system or as a primary network in zones without wireless network coverage. This can help enhance business continuity and disaster recovery capabilities by enabling sensitive operations to proceed even in loss-of-service situations.
> "Park and Use," designed specifically for government use, integrates small cell sites into vehicles, allowing users to drive to locations without wireless coverage and activate service then and there. Roof-mounted satellite antennas further enhance communications on the move.
AT&T is the first carrier to supply a customer-deployable model for mobility recovery to help with disaster recovery and business continuity efforts.
According to an AP story, the Remote Mobility Zone can handle 14 simultaneous calls, and data at less-than-broadband speeds. Coverage extends up to half a mile from the unit. The cost of the units will range from $15,000 to $45,000, AT&T said Monday, plus some monthly fees.
