PMN can be provided as a preconfigured and portable solution for rapid deployment of a GSM/3G UMTS network. As a plug-and-play solution, it takes only minutes to power up and provides coverage within open spaces of up to 900m radius omni-directional in open air (up to 100m in-building) for site personnel. This means that a Private Mobile Network can be deployed rapidly at remote locations or when contingency communications services are required. This is particularly suited to mining, shipping, emergency services and tactical deployment situations.
Provides GSM / 3G UMTS network inside 5 minutes
From a single rugged carry-case, field operatives can communicate with each other within an area of up to 900 metre radius. As speed is vital under these circumstances, the solution can be deployed and available for live communication at the touch of a button. Enclosed within a military standard rugged hard-shell case are all of the components required to facilitate a private GSM/3G UMTS network. The Rapid Deployment Unit (RDU) has the means to transmit and receive calls by utilising an integrated GSM Base Transceiver Station (BTS) / 3G UMTS Access Point (AP). This works in conjunction with the Private Mobile eXchange (PMX) software platform that contains the individual software components that would normally make up a macro mobile voice/SMS network – a Base Station Controller (BSC) / Home Node B GateWay (HNB-GW) and Mobile Switching Centre (MSC), which incorporates an SMS switching centre and 2G / 3G data.
The solution is CE Approved. Housed in a ruggedized case, the unit comes complete with the Base Transceiver Station. A selection of ruggedized mobile phones can be recommended and the battery unit and the connection for the backhaul to the IP network is included. No installation is required.
