I work with Sprint Nextel, and was a top performing manager at VZW.

This solution is unlike any other in the industry as the trucks use a satellite backhaul to connect to the nationwide network. This means that in the affected area, this vehicle is not reliant on the impacted PSTN and related infrastructure.ATT and VZW simply cant do this with any track record or reliability. They require connection to a surviving T-1 line or a microwave hop to an existing site...pretty serious assumptions/requirements in a disaster. This solution can be deployed in an area with zero coverage and provide coverage and connectivity to the nationwide network. Consumer solution? Probably Not. First Responder and Major Enterprise customer - No Brainer.

Peace out.
