[CELL SITE IN A SUITCASE: SONIM RDK WITH FIRSTNET HANDS-ON]
Cell towers. Over the last thirty years they’ve become so commonplace that you probably don’t even notice them anymore – but without them, your smartphone would be nothing but a WiFi tablet. In past videos I’ve shown you how cell sites can be hidden in plain sight in places like church steeples, or built to withstand the worst weather in North America at the top of a mountain. Today, I’m gonna show you how a cell tower can be packed into a suitcase … and how doing so can help save lives.
Join me for another MrMobile “hands-on” (that’s really more of a trunkload)
as I take the Sonim Rapid Deployment Kit-3 out to the end of Long Island in search of cellular coverage thin enough to justify using a satellite 22,500 miles away. The RDK3 is a cell site in a suitcase, and today’s video is all about how it joins forces with a BGAN from Cobham and service from AT&T FirstNet to keep first responders connected in the worst of times.
