PMN can be provided as a preconfigured and portable solution for rugged deployment of a 2G GSM/3G UMTS or 4G LTE network. As a plug-and-play solution, it takes only minutes to power up and will provide coverage within open space of up to 900m and beyond (using additional power-amp / antenna). 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 first-responder, emergency services, tactical deployment, mining, and shipping.
Provides 2G GSM / 3G UMTS / 4G LTE network within 5 minutes
Speed is of the essence and under these circumstances the solution can be deployed and made available for live communication at the touch of a button. Built within a military standard rugged hard-shell case are all of the components required to facilitate a private 2G GSM / 3G UMTS / 4G LTE network. The Rugged Deployment Unit (RDU) has the means to transmit and receive calls by utilising an integrated 2G GSM Base Transceiver Station (BTS) / 3G UMTS Access Point (AP) / 4G eNodeB. 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) / Evolved Packet Core (EPC/MME/PGW/SGW) and Mobile Switching Centre (MSC), and incorporates an SMS switching centre and 2G / 3G / 4G data.
Housed in a ruggedized case, the unit comes complete with the BTS / AP / eNodeB. 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.
